We gave it a B+

The NASCAR-oriented comedy Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby knows there’s a line between stupid and clever, and that there’s fun to be had by vaulting berserkly from one side to the other. Want to see a movie featuring jokes about William Blake and Colonel Sanders in the same scene? Look no further.

EXTRAS include deleted scenes, a gag reel, and a surreally hilarious commentary, purportedly recorded in 2031, in which we learn that John C. Reilly has become a Ted Nugent-skinning militia leader in the ”island state” of Michigan.
