Ugh, it sucked.

I like Will Farrel and think Sacha Baron Cohen is hilarious but man, this movie was horrible. I couldn't make it through more than 30 minutes. I turned it off when Will Farrel's car wrecked and he though he was on fire.

Just really bad.

It was bad. I waited for it to hit the $2.00 theatre, glad I just waisted $4.00. instead of $17.00. Bad bad bad movie.

talladega nights is just like anchorman.... alot of off the cuff one liners that are missed the fist time watching.

I thought anchorman sucked the first time I watched it but it grew on me and got funnier and funnier. same as talladega nights.


the humor is not for everyone though.

I watched it last night and I liked it. Not the rip-roaringest funny movie I ever saw, but as good as expected.

It was enjoyable for me...but like most Will Farrel jokes, it got really old and tired about 20 or 25 minutes before the movie ended.

I liked it. Maybe in part because I have so many NASCAR friends (and watch races occassionaly) that I just knew this stuff right off. I agree it was a little long though, and Anchorman is still better.

Rented it last night watch about the first half, then fell asleep. It had a couple of funny moments, but I don't think I will go back and watch the rest.

This is probably why they packaged the Blu Ray version with the Playstation 3 to empty out the inventory for this horrible movie. At least the HD DVD drive for the XBOX 360 came with King Kong. A somewhat decent film. Not something I would have bought otherwise but since it was in the box eh Cool with me.

Will Farrel is garbage. Filler actor at best.

The key to enjoying Talladaga Nights is simple... smoke some nice herb before you enter.

I couldn't agree more, I thought he was great on SNL but the movies, ouch! Why in the hell was he worth 20 million for this movie, we all know Tom Cruise is insane but every movie rakes in a minimum of 100 million so I understand why he makes that much but after Bewitched and now Talladega Nights, Will might be looking at a payday of around 12 million or less a film (still too much in my opinion though).

I wasted my money at the theatre on this movie. I think there was only a few chuckles throughout the whole show from a packed theatre.

Hopefully his next one will be better.

Ok, Talladega Nights sucked horribly but still, let's not flame Will Ferral. He was FRANK THE TANK!!! Come on, Old School has got to be in the top 5 of all time comedies. And his small role in Wedding Crashers saved that movie.

I agree with those that said it's a watch it once movie. I thought it had a really funny moment here and there, but nothing like some of the other movies mentioned as being funnier.
