Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

November 21, 2006
Will Ferrell has done it again! Unfortunately, what he has done is to co-write one of the most foul mouthed, irreverent spoofs of all time.

There is still graphic violence: a drunken husband slaps his wife and throws her to the ground. This is a reality-check for anyone who doesn't realize [...]
