Available beginning April 1st, Anchorman 2 is getting its official release on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and VOD. Already laughed your ass off to the delightfully dumb antics of Ron Burgundy, Brick Tamland, Brian Fantana and Champ Kind in theaters? Weeeell, gooooood fooor yooooooou… but guess what wasn’t playing in theaters… The Unrated Version or the Super-Sized R-Rated Version with 763 new jokes. That’s right, Anchorman 2 is now packed with more content than you can shake a stick at! This three-disc set features over four hours of bonus content including commentary by Adam McKay, Judd Apatow, Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner, gag reels, more than 90 minutes of deleted, extended and alternate scenes, five behind-the-scenes featurettes, table reads, cast auditions and much, much more.
Just last week we received a pre-release copy of the combo pack and I have to say it was almost overwhelming to review, but over the past week we finally made it through every last clip, commentary and bonus scene – and we’re glad we did!
For a quick reminder why Anchorman 2 should be on your comedy radar check out the new Blu-ray trailer and bonus clips in the gallery below. If you can’t find something to laugh at here – you’re a better human than I OR you’re dead inside…

To say we enjoyed this movie would be an understatement! The original Anchorman is a piece of American comedy lore. In the beginning we were skeptical that a squeal could be pulled off, but in the end we were happily surprised with the plot and the studio’s ability to get all the key players back together again. While we can’t quite put Anchorman 2 on the same pedestal as the original, it is a hilarious laugh fest from start to finish and has some seriously great bonus features that will keep any die hard Burgundy fan busy for hours and hours.
