4.0 out of 5 stars UNRATED- was uncalled for., January 1, 2005
This review is from: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (Unrated Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
I LOVED this movie when I saw it in the theatre over the past summer- so I was pumped to see an "unrated" version come out on DVD.

Whomever was in charge of putting this DVD together yanked a huge chain on this release. I had expected the "unrated" version to be funnier than the theatrical version which I thought was one of the year's funniest movies, because in general, "unrated" cuts have been better than the "regular" release.

This "unrated" version skips a couple really great monents from the theatrical version, one instance is when Carell's character "Brick" utters "I ate a big red candle" during the party hangover sequence and they replace it with a joke that's nowhere near that great non-sequitor. Near the end of the film they edited out Ferrell's lines just before he picks up the phone in the bar (something about "once being an anchorman")which was more in line with the film's plot/angle than the new scene of Burgundy eating cat poop. A TERRIBLY UNFUNNY ADDITION.

The crapper of it is, the unrated DVD has different and admittedly better extras than the theatrical DVD release, so to actually get the theatrical cut(which is a better cut than the unrated version) the customer gets screwed if they want the better extra features. lame.

in all actuality this review would be 4 for the movie, and 1 for the way this fiasco was put out on DVD.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy - The Rich Mahogany Edition (Blu-ray)

"The movie comes packaged in an oversized box (it's a 'Rich Mahogany Edition') that comes with a booklet ('The Many Months of Ron Burgundy') and a pack of collectible playing cards (12 in total). The movie itself is on one 50GB disc, with two different cuts: the original theatrical cut (PG-13) and a longer, unrated cut. [...] The second 50GB disc houses a spin-off movie called 'Wake Up, Ron Burgundy' and a whole boatload of special features."

It mentions it may not work on DVD/Blue Ray in the US. Did you have any problems?

Well, I'm in the U.S., bought it at a local Best Buy and played it on my Pioneer Blu-ray [North American] player with no problem.

Hope that helps.

Yeah, well...some people don't have a blue-ray player.

I agree with the reviewer it was idiotic for them to release it this way.
