TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY
I thought Talladega Nights was both funny and wise.
Behind the NASCAR sendup, there is a real story about how you learn to live well or not well, according to how wisely you understand what you were taught (intentionally or by accident) about how to live your life.
Will Ferrell is very good. Sacha Baron Cohen is funny. Leslie Bibb is stunning, and better than most at playing the winner-chasing woman. Amy Adams is very cute and lovely. Gary Cole is excellent as Will's Father.
