  1. It is Ferrell's best movie and the summer's funniest comedy so far.

    Those who appreciate Ferrell's sense of humor will be utterly entertained by his efforts to kick it into high gear.
  3. Reilly can play nuts, too, and in a lower gear that reins Ferrell in. They're a great team.
  4. As a cultural artifact, Talladega Nights is both completely phony and, therefore, utterly authentic. Or, to put it differently: this movie is the real thing. It's finger lickin' good. It's eatin' good in the neighborhood. It's the King of Beers. It's Wonder Bread.

    Silly, inconsistent, and completely frivolous, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby also happens to be one of the funniest movies this side of 2006.

    Ferrell's shtick never grows tiresome, because it's constantly changing.

    On the Ferrellometer, Talladega Nights sits just above "Kicking & Screaming," when it should be redlining it up there with "Anchorman."

    I didn't see this movie in theaters because I thought it looked too stupid, but when I saw it on cable I couldn't stop laughing. Great movie. I showed it to my dad and we quote it all the time. Possibly Will Ferrell's best movie yet. Expand

    The movie is funny, and that's all that matters. It doesn't have to be clever or well written. So long as I laugh, I'll be able to recommend it. It's worth your time, no doubt. Expand

    Talladega Nights rides with no class.
    Ricky Bobby is successful in the way that nearly all Ferrel movies are, funny. The story is mediocre,
    and in some places non existent, but in the end it is a comedy movie not a work of art. Expand

    The story is a bit sloppy but it makes up for it by being very funny. Will Ferrell is not as good as Anchorman but its got a few exciting and funny moments. Expand

    I don't see why anyone would much like this, really. Most of the humor is obvious and falls flat. Maybe teenagers would enjoy it. I don't know. I thought it was boring and obnoxious. Not one of Will's shining moments. Expand
