Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
Source: Catholic News Service
Fitfully amusing comedy about a former pit-crew mechanic (Will Ferrell) who rises to the pinnacle of the NASCAR racing circuit, falls from the spotlight and then tries to get back to the top with the help of his beer-guzzling dad (Gary Cole). Despite a goofily entertaining performance by Ferrell, there's not much under the hood when it comes to story and the script by Ferrell and longtime collaborator Adam McKay (who also directs) hits plenty of speed bumps in the form of juvenile jokes by turns vulgar, irreverent, or just unfunny. Recurring crude sexual language and humor, a running gag involving a gay character, some irreverent humor and profanity, drug references, comic violence. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
