Will Ferrell is back - and this time he's faster than ever. Kidzworld takes a look at this NASCAR-inspired comedy to find out if it's worth getting all revved up over.

Talladega Nights - Comedy in the Fast Lane

Will 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 Connection

When 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 - DVD Features

Start your engines! The Talladega Nights DVD is now in stores for you to add to your Will Ferrell movie collection. This NASCAR-inspired disc is jam-packed with extras including extended scenes, bloopers, commentary from the director and the actors and features on real NASCAR events. You'll spend just as much time glued to these features as you will the actual movie!

Talladega Nights - The Bottom Line

Talladega 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.

Talladega Nights Rating:5

    I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.
