Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby " Unrated and Uncut!

None December 28th, 2006



If the idea of interrupting the climax of a film with an Applebee's commercial or having an urbane, French, homosexual race-car driver discuss the finer points of "Highlander" with a hero who's dumber than a set of Craftsman tools doesn't strike you as pants-peeingly hilarious, then "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" isn't the film for you.
Having the box office smash on DVD allows you to more fully appreciate the precise improvisations and wicked satire that lampoons the NASCAR mentality for all it's worth; Will Ferrell and Adam McKay don't deviate from the formula that brought them so much success with "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," another slice of sublimely idiotic cinema.
 Expectedly, the DVD is stuffed with bonus features that either aggravate (McKay's meta-commentary wears thin quickly) or endlessly amuse (plenty of bloopers, alternate takes and deleted scenes); if you dug it in theaters, burn rubber, but if not, just stay put in the pit.
