3 out of 10 Average stuff
Brian from Mayo, 02 May 2008
An average enough outing from Will Ferrell, who plays the character of Ricky Bobby fairly straight in this racing based film. There are some good gags here, and John C. Reilly is a revelation as Ferrell's best friend, Cal Naughton Jr. Sacha Baron Cohen plays his nemesis, a gay French driver, but this character never quite clicks, which detracts from the film. At 110 minutes the film is too long, and could have done with being 15-20 mins shorter.

3.5 out of 10 Ron Burgundy in a car
Rónán from Dublin, 02 Jul 2007
If you enjoyed Will Ferrell in any of his other comedy movies like Anchorman you'll probably enjoy Talladega Nights, if you didn't this may not be the movie for you. Again Ferrell plays if for laughs and has some good support from John C Reilly as his buddy Hal. Ali G and Borat aka Sacha Baron Cohen also makes an appearance as a gay French Nascar driver! It's silly but good fun

4.5 out of 10 Hilarious
Susan from Donegal, 09 Apr 2010
Continuous laughing throughout a great film. From start to finish this film provides humour and a good storyline. If you don't like any of Will Ferrell's other films then maybe you won't like this, however, if you liked anchorman, then you'll love this. I strongly recommend watching this for a good laugh. Trust me.

1 out of 10 No matter how hard I try
Philip from Dublin, 05 Apr 2007
....I just don't find Will Ferrall funny, he is unfunny. Sacha Baron Cohen does his best with his character but this film is really crap - if you like ferrall well then you will prob hoot at him running around the place thinking he is on fire. Its all been done before and wasn't even funny then

Nick from Dublin, 17 Apr 2007
Somebody will find this funny, no doubt. But they'll also probably find rice krispies crazy too. Do yourself a favour and rent Cars instead. The characters are way more believable and the background looks less CGI tacky. This is woeful, and I really want to like Will Ferrell.

What's it about....
From the people who bought you Anchorman and The 40 Year Old Virgin comes this hilarious fast-paced comedy starring Will Ferrell as Ricky Bobby - one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. Ricky has everything a racing sensation and national hero could wish for: a luxurious mansion, a smokin' hot wife (Leslie Bibb) and a loyal racing partner, childhood friend Cal Naughton, Jr. (John C. Reilly). But flamboyant French Formula One driver Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) is...
