John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Talladega NightsBecky and I went to see Talladega Nights on Saturday night at the Colorado Cinemas in Castle Rock, Colorado.

The movie theater was pretty packed as people still want to see this crazy movie with Will Ferrel and John C. Reilly.

The Yahoo movie website at Talladega Nights describes the movie as follows:

Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) is a NASCAR racing sensation whose “win at all costs” approach has made him a national hero. He and his loyal racing partner and childhood friend, Cal Naughton Jr. (John C. Reilly), are a fearless duo, thrilling their fans by finishing most races in the top spots – with Ricky Bobby always leading the pack.…”

The Review
Talladega Nights is a crazy movie that is doing extremely well at the box office, but is not for everyone. The movie is absolutely ridiculous and downright stupid, but that’s what makes it so funny.

This is NOT a movie for kids and is definitely more of a Rated R film than a PG-13 rating. There is absolutely zero intellectual value for this film. The story is goofy, the characters are nuts and the situations are totally far-fetched, but it’s pretty darn funny. It reminded me of a Saturday Night Live skit gone awry. There will be a ton of people who see this movie and hate it, but there will be many more people who find this zany and sick sense of humor hilarious.

Becky and I found ourselves laughing outloud on a number of occassions during Talladega Nights. However, be forewarned that some of the language and situations are a bit crude.

In spite of the laughs, I would recommend waiting for the Rental on this one, but just barely. Becky on the other hand, thought it was Worth The Trip, which I didn’t expect given how goofy this movie really is.
