This hilarious Will Ferrell penned comedy tells the story of a dreamer who can only count to #1. After winning and losing it all, NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) must claw his way back to the top the only way he knows how — the hard way.
TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY tells the story of NASCAR racing sensation Ricky Bobby, whose "win at all costs" approach has made him a national hero. He has everything a championship NASCAR driver could ever want — a gorgeous wife Carley (Leslie Bibb), a lakeside mansion, two hell-raising sons Walker (Houston Tumlin) and Texas (Grayson Russell) Ranger, huge sponsor endorsements and a string of victories. He and his loyal racing partner and childhood friend, Cal Naughton, Jr (John C Reilly), are a fearless duo that thrill their fans by finishing most races in the top spots - with Ricky Bobby always leading the pack. When a flamboyant French Formula One driver, Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) challenges him for the supremacy of NASCAR, Ricky Bobby must face his own demons and fight Girard for the right to be known as racing's top driver.
The film stars king of comedy Will Ferrell (ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY) as Ricky Bobby and Sacha Baron Cohen (ALI G INDAHOUSE) as his arch nemesis Jean Girard. With a supporting cast made up from some of the US's hottest talent including John C Reilly (THE AVIATOR), Michael Clarke Duncan (SIN CITY), Amy Adams (CATCH ME IF YOU CAN), Leslie Bibb (THE SKULLS), Gary Cole (DODGEBALL:A TRUE UNDERDOG STORY), Molly Shannon (SHALLOW HAL) and Greg Germann (FRIENDS WITH MONEY).
An action comedy set at the renowned Talladega super speedway racing track in Alabama, the film is directed by Adam McKay (ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY) and written by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
