Like "Anchorman," the secret to the inspired absurdity of Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is in the improv. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
As a cultural artifact, Talladega Nights is both completely phony and, therefore, utterly authentic. Or, to put it differently: this movie is the real thing. It's finger lickin' good. It's eatin' good in the neighborhood. It's the King of Beers. It's Wonder Bread. Full Review
James Berardinelli
You laugh a few times but, in the end, you wonder why you bothered. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Talladega Nights may be brash, unbridled, even unhinged, but its cornpone humor is rich in parody, and its craftsmanship is superb -- smart writing, shrewd direction, precisely calibrated performances (whether the calibration calls for delicacy or broad-gauge burlesque), inventive language, inspired silliness and all-but-flawless timing.

A bit of a mess, but it is a genial mess, and one that will make you laugh. Which is the whole idea. Full Review
