Did You Know?

Trivia:
Ricky Bobby's driver's license is shown to have been issued on July 16, which is Will Ferrell's birthday. The license also states that Ricky was born on July 16, 1971.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Although NASCAR does allow relief drivers to get in a car after the race is already started. The relief driver must have practiced in a NASCAR Cup car during that weekend at that track of the event. Since Ricky is on the pit crew, he would not have practiced a car and therefore would not be allowed to get in the car for his first race.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Reese Bobby:[Reese is speeding] Guess how fast we're going now!
Lucy Bobby:[screams] I don't care! I'm having a baby!

Dumb but entertaining racing comedy, 7 January 2007
Author: mstomaso from Vulcan

In Talladega Nights, Will Farrell and Jon C. Reilly head a nicely assembled cast (without a lot of star power) in a story about a fool who happens to be a race car driver and who has based his entire life philosophy around a phrase uttered by his alcoholic father during a drunk - "If you ain't first, you're last". Ricky Bobby rides high in his largely unexamined life until, predictably, he eventually crashes hard when confronted with a gay French intellectual who just might be a better driver than he is, and a boss who does not appreciate his arrogance.

Talladega Nights uses a narrative and editing style reminiscent of the brilliant Deathrace 2000 to create an entirely different effect - unlike Deathrace 2000's intellectually challenging political and social commentary, Talladega Nights is a simple absurdist comedy played out by several stereotypes in the contemporary racing entertainment industry. The film is successful largely because of it's careful plotting and occasional substitution of slap-stick for (dumb) dialogue driven comedy. The script is nothing special, but was probably well edited in the final construction of the film in order to emphasize its occasional moments of brilliance. If you go into this without much in the way of expectations, you just might enjoy it.
