San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
This is a decidedly blue-state take on a red-state phenomenon.
USA Today - Claudia Puig
Like "Anchorman," the secret to the inspired absurdity of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is in the improv.
TV Guide - Angel Cohn
Those who appreciate Ferrell's sense of humor will be utterly entertained by his efforts to kick it into high gear.
Boston Globe - Wesley Morris
We are treated to the riotous, almost David Lynchian moment in which Ferrell runs around a motorway in his undies screaming that he's on fire. He's not. Actually, come to think of it: He is.

Talladega Nights The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

NASCAR stock car racing sensation Ricky Bobby is a national hero because of his 'win at all costs' approach. He and his loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton Jr., are a fearless duo -- 'Shake' and 'Bake' by their fans for their ability to finish so many races in the #1 and #2 positions, with Cal always in second place. When flamboyant French Formula One driver Jean Girard challenges 'Shake' and 'Bake' for the supremacy of NASCAR, Ricky Bobby must face his own demons and fight Girard for the right to be known as racing's top driver.
