‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad Of Ricky Bobby’

by Giovanni Fazio

Director: Adam McKay

Language: English

OK, I know the presence of Will Ferrell is akin to a big red warning light, but stock-car racing comedy “Talladega Nights” is priceless, and time has proven it to be a cult hit on the level of “This is Spinal Tap” or “The Big Lebowski,” filled with endlessly quotable dialogue. (“So when you say ‘psychosomatic,’ you mean he could start a fire with his thoughts?”) John C. Reilly, Sacha Baron Cohen and Amy Adams costar in this rise-and-fall parody which mercilessly skewers red-state America.
