On the Big Board
Position Staff In Brief
10/52 Les Winan Hilarious and absurd, the film has some dead spots but features outstanding work by all the actors. Is NASCAR Nation in on the joke?
23/65 Kim Hollis I laughed and smiled so much my face hurt at the end.
24/47 Amanda Jones Not completely unfunny, but I spent a lot of time waiting for it to be over.
29/159 David Mumpower Will Ferrell's brand of comedy, the non-screaming stuff, is impossible to quantify but I find it hysterical. Anchorman fans should eat this up.
118/200 Max Braden For fans of Ferrell, while I think others will be bored.

Digg Button  
You know who’s funny? Will Ferrell. Especially when he’s yelling. And given the fact that the cockpit of a race car is probably one of the noisiest places in the world, he’ll have plenty of opportunity for just that as he stars as a NASCAR driver in Talladega Nights.

The film will once again team Ferrell with Adam McKay, his director and co-writer for Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Given the popularity of NASCAR, a comedy about the rivalries and camaraderie that results between the drivers in the sport should be a huge hit amongst potential audiences. For those unfamiliar with this brand of auto racing, Talladega is one of the major tracks used for racing. Located in Alabama, it’s a perfect location to capture the atmosphere that makes the sport so exciting to so many. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
