ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" is a bit of a mess, but it is a genial mess, and one that will make you laugh. Which is the whole idea...As co-written by star Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay (who has a cameo as a feckless race car driver), "Talladega Nights" is not the kind of coherent, internally consistent comedy "Little Miss Sunshine" is. Rather, like the "Saturday Night Live" shows where Ferrell and McKay met, it is a series of sketches and set pieces, some of which work while others misfire...Though "Talladega Nights" is very much a guy comedy, it has found room for some sharp and amusing female roles. Leslie Bibb is all she should be as Ricky's glossy blond trophy wife, Carley; Jane Lynch stands up for comic sanity as Ricky's hardscrabble mom, Lucy Bobby; and Amy Adams, in a departure from "Junebug," plays Ricky's loyal assistant Susan.

Review After crashing and burning with Kicking & Screaming and Bewitched, Will Ferrell puts the pedal to the medal with winning results in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. A laugh-out-loud funny send-up of NASCAR, the movie reunites Ferrell with his Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy director, Adam McKay. With the inestimable help of a crackerjack supporting cast headed by John C. Reilly and Sacha Baron-Cohen, a.k.a. "Ali G," Ferrell and McKay cheerfully skewer the NASCAR subculture and all things redneck in an inspired comedy that could be dubbed "The Fast and the Hilarious"...The perfect tonic to this summer's bloated, special effects-driven extravaganzas, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby crosses the finish line with flying colors.

Dean Richards, WGN-TV "The funniest movie of the year!"
"Cohen and Ferrell riff off each other with inspired lunacy." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Richard Roeper and Guest Critic, Jay Leno, EBERT & ROEPER "TWO THUMBS WAY UP."
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal ...brash, unbridled, even unhinged, but its cornpone humor is rich in parody, and its craftsmanship is superb...
Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly Not just the funniest but the smartest comedy around by a mile.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer It is Ferrell's best movie and the summer's funniest comedy so far.
