From the people who bought you Anchorman and The 40 Year Old Virgin comes this hilarious fast-paced comedy starring Will Ferrell as Ricky Bobby - one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. Ricky has everything a racing sensation and national hero could wish for: a luxurious mansion, a smokin' hot wife (Leslie Bibb) and a loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton, Jr. (John C. Reilly). But flamboyant French Formula One driver Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) is about to wreck Ricky's world and challenge for the supremacy of NASCAR. Now Ricky must face his demons and 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, Your Last!'

Ferrell is professional Southern idiot and NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby. And that really is all you need to know. Ballad does everything expected of it and first and foremost it makes you laugh like a drain. When any movie asks you to drive with the fear and puts a cougar in the car for good measure you sit up and take note.

This is as it says on the dvd case: " The best daft comedy since Dodgeball", this is absoloutley true. It is a very funny film with lots and lots of crude jokes and humour from the start. Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) is a Nascar pit man who volunteers to take over the job as the team driver, he takes over with one thing on his mind and that is winning. With the help of his freind Cal Naughton, Jr (John C. Reilly) he soon becomes the best Nascar racer and has the life many of us dream of. Just when he thinks that he will never be beaten along comes a French F1 driver Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) to come and test Ricky Bobby to his limit.

 Perfect For Will Ferrell Fans

Talladega Nights may be brash, unbridled, even unhinged, but its humor is rich in parody, and its craftsmanship is superb -- smart writing, shrewd direction, inventive language, inspired silliness, precisely calibrated performances and all-but-flawless timing .. it's an irresistible combination.

This might not be quite as good as Anchorman, but it does have it's brilliant comedy moments.
Imagine Days of thunder, but played for laughs.
Although this is a comedy, there is some fantastic car carnage, that even manages to steal, Tom Cruses Thunder. The film is not without it's faults as the film does loose some of it's momentum in the middle.But when the film is funny it fires on all cylinders.
The film does deserve a second viewing, as after the first time I watched it, I was left a little cold, but on second and third viewing, the film did hit the comic goal.
The best scene has to be when Ricky Bobby is praying to Tom Cruse to save him.
As a fast paced comedy, this movie is a winner!
