You pretty much have to like Will Ferrell to like Talladega Nights, it's his film through and through. But if you do, you're in for a ride.
| Original Score: 8/10
Talladega starts out slow, picks up speed in the middle, and nearly crashes and burns in the end.
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 3/5
The script by Ferrell and director Adam McKay, a parody of sports biopics, takes the same freewheeling approach that served them well on Anchorman, but with a more mean-spirited edge.
A comedy with horsepower to spare.
Showcases Will Ferrell's comedy genius to perfection.
| Original Score: 4/5
Playing to his strengths, star and co-writer Will Ferrell reaps many good comic moments early on in Adam Mckay's feature to compensate for a sluggish second half.
i concur with everything bobby has to say about highlander
| Original Score: 3/5
Will Ferrell and director/writing collaborator Adam McKay have carved out a comfortable comic niche in taking confidently clueless oafs and pulling the rug out from under the core of resolutely prototypical alpha male existence.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Check your brain at the box-office to enjoy this brand of politically-incorrect hilarity poking fun mostly at gays, women and the French, all aimed at a redneck crowd with an average I.Q. of about 75.
| Original Score: 2/4
In Talladega, Mr. Ferrell finds his best role to date.
'Talladega Nights': Deliciously Subversive Political Satire
The white-trash, child-neglect, feel-good NASCAR comedy of the year (the one without the talking cars).
| Original Score: 3.0/4.0
Ferrell e seus parceiros se mostram sempre dispostos a estender uma cena até que ela eventualmente se torne engraçada %u2013 e, por incrível que pareça, esta tática funciona com freqüência.
A film that will keep you laughing from beginning to end (including the credits), "Talladega Nights" is the most fun you can have this summer at 200 miles per hour!
Silly, but entertaining comedy about a dim-witted race car driver and his dysfunctional family and friends.
| Original Score: C+
...It's hard not to be amused by the scene-stealing supporting cast.
Anchorman director Adam McKay has assembled a terrific cast and his hilarious script (co-written with Ferrell) ensures that each of the characters has their own funny moment.
Broad but not crude, dumb but not witless, clever but still snot-spittingly funny. Stupidly brilliant, in other words.
Probably best viewed with a six-pack on hand.
