TAL­LADEGA NIGHTS: THE BAL­LAD OF RICKY BOBBY (2006) GO! 9.30PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Do­ing for NASCAR what he did for broad­cast­ers in An­chor­man, Will Fer­rell gets more mileage out of play­ing an­other ego-driven buf­foon in this goofy satire. Fer­rell is gifted Amer­i­can petrol­head Ricky Bobby, who must con­tend with be­ing knocked off his perch by an ef­fem­i­nate French For­mula One star (Sacha Baron Co­hen) while his long-time buddy and rac­ing part­ner (John C. Reilly) steals both his wife and his spot as No. 1 driver for the team. Fer­rell doesn’t quite con­jure up Ron Bur­gundy-cal­i­bre hi­lar­ity with this pro­ject, but there’s plenty of juice in the per­for­mances of Reilly and Baron Co­hen. ★★★
