Review: Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

“Talldega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby”
Run time: 1:37

After such box office turds as “Kicking & Screaming” (which I saw) and “Bewitched” (which I was smart enough not to see), Will Ferrell reunites with “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy” co-writer and director Adam McKay for “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”. I’m not sure if using a colon in every movie they do is necessary, but it’s worked so far. The whole gang is back with John C. Reilly thrown into the mix as Ricky Bobby’s teammate and best friend, Cal Naughton, Jr. Who knew NASCAR could be this funny?

If you saw “Anchorman” and still quote it at family dinners and office gatherings, then prepare to add to your useless movie quote pantheon with “Ricky Bobby” until it aggravates the whole group. Yes, I’m speaking from experience.

Rating: 4.25 out of 5
