Product Overview

From hamming it up on Saturday Night Live to hamming it up in every movie he's been in since his departure from the legendary television show, Will Ferrell has been a comedy kingpin in America and The Will-arious Collection! showcases his talents in true form. Includes the films: ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY - UNRATED, UNCUT & UNCALLED FOR!, OLD SCHOOL: UNRATED AND OUT OF CONTROL & A NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY.

ANCHORMAN: Will Ferrell (OLD SCHOOL, Elf) is Ron Burgundy, a top-rated 1970's San Diego anchorman who believes women have a place in the newsroom - as long as they stick to covering fashion shows or late-breaking cooking news. So when Ron is told he'll be working with a bright young newswoman (Christina Applegate) who's beautiful, ambitious and smart enough to be more than eye candy, it's not just a clash of two TV people with really great hair - it's war! Filled with wicked wit and slapstick humor, Anchorman is the year's most wildly irreverent, must see comedy hit!

OLD SCHOOL: Get ready for the unrated and out-of-control version of OLD SCHOOL that you couldn't see in theaters! What's a guy supposed to do when he catches the early flight home and finds his girlfriend in a bed with a roomful of strangers? Return to college and start a fraternity! Before you can say "wild and wet wrestling", Frank "The Tank" (Will Ferrell, Saturday Night Live); Mitch (Luke Wilson, Legally Blonde) and Beanie (Vince Vaughn, Swingers) have their own frat raging with out-of-control antics. But when things get too wild, the dean sets out to shut them down. The laughs are top of the class (even if the guys aren't) in the hit comedy from director Todd Phillips (Road Trip).

A NIGHT AT THE ROXBURY: With their iridescent suits, gold chains and sideburns, the Butabi Brothers are confident they're cool enough to go wherever the night takes them. But the doormen at L.A.'s hottest clubs think not, and keep them out on the street--until a fortunate accident ushers them into the ultra-hip Roxbury Club and into a life they once only dreamed about.

Review [Old] Old School is exactly what director Todd Phillips intends for it to be: low-brow, moronic to a fault, and occasionally side-splittingly funny. I laughed aloud seven or eight times during this film, and smiled or chuckled on a few additional occasions. Admittedly, considering the bawdy, brainless nature of the humor, there were times when I was almost embarrassed to be laughing, but that didn't stop me. In an era when a viewer is lucky to find one or two humorous moments during the course of a 90-minute so-called "comedy," Old School delivers with surprising effectiveness.

Review [Night] One could criticize A Night at the Roxbury for being a comedy that provides not a single laugh. That would be too easy. Better we should broaden our aesthetic and praise the film for subtly letting us know that it's a comedy without resorting to anything as vulgar and obvious as a joke...Chazz Palminteri plays a club owner. He's lively. When he's onscreen the time passes quickly. Richard Grieco makes an appearance, playing himself, as the idol of Steve and Doug. But being the coolest guy in this movie still isn't cool.

Review [Anchor] Sometimes the key to satire is to stay fairly close to the source. "Anchorman," like "This Is Spinal Tap," works best when it's only a degree or two removed from the excesses of the real thing...If the movie simply focused on making Ron and his team look ridiculous, it might grow tedious, because that would be such an easy thing to do. But it has a kind of sweetness to it...When the news teams clash in a free-for-all, it's over the top. But a lot of the quieter moments of rivalry are on target.

Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com [Old] It's blissfully, pants-wettingly funny from beginning to end.
Anita Gates, The New York Times [Night] ...strangely lovable.
Eric Campos, Film Threat [Anchor] Full force Will Ferrell at his best.
Kevin Carr, Film Threat [Old] ...Ferrell is a fearless comedian, and he commits completely to his insanity in the film.
Stephen Hunter, Washington Post [Anchor] You will laugh. Then you will laugh some more. Then you will laugh still again.
