()

Comedy, Sport |

Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is a American sports comedy film directed by Adam McKay and starring Will Ferrell, while written by both McKay and Ferrell. Additionally, the film features John C. Reilly, Sacha Baron Cohen, Gary Cole, Michael Clarke Duncan, Leslie Bibb, Jane Lynch, and Amy Adams, and appearances by Saturday Night Live alumni. NASCAR drivers Jamie McMurray and Dale Earnhardt Jr. make cameos, as do broadcasting teams from NASCAR on Fox (Mike Joy, Larry McReynolds and Darrell Waltrip) and NASCAR on NBC (Bill Weber, Wally Dallenbach Jr. and Benny Parsons).

In North Carolina, Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) is a man who grew up dreaming of going fast. Born in the backseat of a racing car on country roads while his father, Reese (Gary Cole), accidentally missed the turnoff for the hospital due to driving too fast, Ricky grew up not knowing his race car driving father, only seeing him once in 10 years when he was kicked out of Ricky’s school for inappropriate behavior.

Before leaving, Reese tells Ricky that in life, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” The phrase sticking with him into adulthood, while working on the pit crew of Dennit Racing driver Terry Cheveaux (Adam McKay), Ricky acts as a replacement driver after Terry decides to take a bathroom break while in last place. After finishing third in the race, Ricky gains fame and fortune in NASCAR by winning many races. While racing, he meets his future wife Carley (Leslie Bibb), after she flashes her breasts.
