Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
The story of a man who could only count to #1
Lifelong friends and national idols Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. have earned their NASCAR stripes with their uncanny knack of finishing races in the first and second slots, respectively, and slinging catchphrases like "Shake and bake!" But when a rival French driver coasts onto the track to challenge their records, they'll have to floor it to retain their top-dog status.
Because it had been that sort of day.

So much better than Rush.
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in "Now It's Just Getting Sad".
Led by an energetic and great performance from Will Ferrell, Talladega Nights is an entertaining, quotable and hilarious comedy as well as a good satire on racecar drivers. Some moments definitely go more over the top than they need to but I think that really adds to the humor of it all. One of my favorite comedies from the 2000s.
"If you don't like Big Red, then fuck you."
It's self-indulgent and overlong. But Will Ferrell and John C Reilly always make a great team. The racing is exciting, and I'd forgotten about the appearance of the always wonderful Amy Adams. Watch out for Gary "Lumberg" Cole to steal every scene he's in. This movie just makes me happy.
And it also makes me want to watch "Days of Thunder".
My first unrated movie!

If you don't chew Big Red, fuck you.
Love this film, but the final shot, the aerial as they're leaving Talladega, there's zero garbage on the ground. None. In the campgrounds of a NASCAR event. Zero. Way to completely kill the movie at the end.
This movie is so fucking stupid, in all the positive essences of the word. The scene when they argue about Baby-Jesus, hands down one of the funniest scenes of all time. Just the perfomances themselves make me cry with laughter
Really funny film from the great Will Ferrell.
It's shocking how similar this movie is to Cars. They both came out in the same year, they both feature hot-shot racing stars learning a lesson in humility, and they are just, in many ways, structurally and thematically similar. But I think I like Talladega Nights better. It's absolutely hysterical, and to my surprise, works just as well as a movie.
Most comedies want to focus on laughs first, story second, and while Talladega Nights is the same in many respects, (not to mention the clichèd and generally predictable plot), I really appreciate that Adam McCay and Will Ferrell decided to craft a story that worked on more than a basic level, adding a few extremely clever (and hilarious) twists…
Will Ferrell does it yet again. This time he is joined by Sacha Baron Cohen alongside with John C. Riley. Not something that you should jump on to go and see but definitely worth your time.
