Talladega Nights DVD Review
Will Ferrell is back and he's faster than ever. Find out if this NASCAR-inspired comedy is worth getting all revved up about!
Talladega Nights - Comedy in the Fast LaneWill Ferrell plays Ricky Bobby, who was abandoned by his father as a child and grows up to be a win-at-all-costs NASCAR driver. He lives a life of lunacy and excess with his best friend Cal Naughton Jr. (John C. Reilly), his "sizzlin' red-hot" wife (Leslie Bibb) and his two sons, Walker and Texas Ranger. That is, until a new driver rolls into town.
Talladega Nights - French ConnectionWhen French Formula "Un" driver Jean Girrard (Sacha Baron Cohen) arrives on the racing scene, Ricky Bobby is in for a rough ride. A serious crash pushes Ricky over the edge, leads him to mistakenly believe he's on fire, and causes him to pray to Tom Cruise to use his "witchcraft to get the fire off". From there, Ricky Bobby goes into a tailspin and winds up as a bike-riding pizza delivery man. His only hope at a triumphant return to racing comes in the form of his estranged father, a cougar named Karen and a very personal former personal assistant.

Talladega Nights - The Bottom LineTalladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is a laugh-out-loud hit with moments of pure comic genius. The actors improvised a lot of the lines, giving the film a bit of a Saturday Night Live feel, which occasionally leads to a few lame scenes that you'll be quick to forgive. Talladega Nights is must-see summer film that you'll be quoting for the rest of the year.
