About the Movie

The fastest man on four wheels, Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) is one of the greatest drivers in Nascar history. A big, hairy American winning machine, Ricky has everything a dimwitted daredevil could want, a luxurious mansion, a smokin' hot wife (Leslie Bibb) and all the fast food he can eat. But Ricky's turbo-charged lifestyle hits an unexpected speed bump when he's bested by flamboyant Euro-idiot Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen, TV's "Da Ali G Show") and reduced to a fear-ridden wreck. Losing his wife and job to best bud and fellow fool, Cal Naughton, Jr. (John C. Reilly), Ricky must kick some serious asphalt if he's to get his career back on the track, beat Girard and reclaim his fame and fortune. 'Cause as Ricky Bobby always says, If You ain't first, You're last!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The laughs come and go, but Ferrell makes NASCAR his bitch funny. Funnier. And more fun. And then the fun skids to a stop. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: A comedy with horsepower to spare. – Steven Snyder, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Though the movie about a moronic NASCAR racer overall is uneven and Ricky Bobby's saga lacks focus, the stupid-comical banter and the lampooning of this particular brand of car racing proves entertaining. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Essentially a string of gags loosely looped together, a set of absurd situations for the actors to clown their way through, Talladega Nights is an affable entertainment, both a celebration and a satire of lowbrow pleasures. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

"The best darn movie every made." Ricky Bobby

What else is there to say. Seriously, you know those movies that you sit around with your pals and quote line after line, and just crack each other up. Well, this is one of those movies. Will Farrell at his best. Just a note: most NASCAR fans don't care for this film, even though one of it's biggest drivers has a cameo.


This movie won an oscar for best movie EVER. All around hilarious. If you haven't seen it you are missing one of the best comedies of the last 10 years.
