Yipee – another NASCAR movie! If you can’t tell by the title, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby is a parody of roundy round racing even though Will Farrell may be a more credible good ole boy than Tom Cruise.
Talladega Nights follows the racer who could only count to #1 as he winds his way through the NASCAR world. Opening on August 4th in North America, The Ballad of Ricky Bobby may be destined for a lifetime of glory on latenight TV. Nobody ever accused Days of Thunder of being Oscar worthy, but how often have you been channel surfing and stopped to watch the entire movie?
