Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby 2006


The film tells the story of NASCAR stock car racing sensation Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) whose "win at all costs" approach has made him a national hero. He and his loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton Jr. (John C. Reilly), are a fearless duo -- dubbed "Thunder" and "Lightning" by their fans for their ability to finish so many races in the #1 and #2 positions, with Cal always in second place. When a flamboyant French Formula One driver, Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen), challenges the "Thunder" and "Lightning" for the supremacy of NASCAR, Ricky Bobby must face his own demons and fight Girard for the right to be known as racing's top driver.

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Movie Review by Movie Addict (12/25/2007)

I have to admit that when I first started watching this film with Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly I thought it was a documentary. The performances of the two stars was so spot on that they had to be the result of outstanding acting or perfect casting. I guess it is the fact that i am surrounded by legions of NASCAR fans...

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

There are many chances for this film to be the next great broad Will Ferrell comedy, to follow in the footsteps of 'Old School' (2003), 'Elf' (2003) and 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgendy (2004) to make Ferrell the new Sandler. However this film loses its funny bone fast and is about half an hour too long. If not for...

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Movie Review by Will (8/14/2006)

I've always hated racing. I mean, really, what's the point? You watch a bunch of cars go around the track for hours at a time. Where's the fun in that? Well, apparently, somebody's been enjoying it, as NASCAR has permanently worked its way into modern culture. Every day, I see ads for it in magazines, newspapers, and even...

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby Movie Review by AJ (8/14/2006)

When a movie makes you long for the sophistication of Anchorman, you know that something's gone wrong. Anchorman seems to have found some sort of cult in between the mainstream and niche audiences hailing it as a comedic masterpiece, even though it's really a spotty, hit-or-miss affair in desperate need of a little bit...
