L.A. Weekly - Scott Foundas
Not just the funniest but the smartest comedy around by a mile.
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
The races are scorchingly shot, and they lend the movie a zest.
New York Daily News - Jack Mathews
Reilly can play nuts, too, and in a lower gear that reins Ferrell in. They're a great team.
The Hollywood Reporter - Sheri Linden
From its pitch-perfect title through just about every detail, this sendup of sports-triumph movies maintains the right parodic pitch, if not always the highest mph on the laugh speedometer.
Variety - Robert Koehler
Simultaneously teasing and loving a subject doesn't make for easy comedy, but writer-star Will Ferrell and director/co-writer Adam McKay pull it off with good-ol'-boy good nature in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

Talladega Nights The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

Lifelong friends and national idols Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. have earned their NASCAR stripes with their uncanny knack of finishing races in the first and second slots, respectively, and slinging catchphrases like "Shake and bake!" But when a rival French driver coasts onto the track to challenge their records, they'll have to floor it to retain their top-dog status.
