About this movie

The fastest man on four wheels, Ricky Bobby (WILL FERRELL) is one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. A big, hairy American winning machine, Ricky has everything a dimwitted daredevil could want, a luxurious mansion, a smokin' hot wife (LESLIE BIBB) and all the fast food he can eat. But Ricky's turbo-charged lifestyle hits an unexpected speed bump when he's bested by flamboyant Euro-idiot Jean Girard (SACHA BARON COHEN, TV's "Da Ali G Show") and reduced to a fear-ridden wreck. Losing his wife and job to best bud and fellow fool, Cal Naughton, Jr. (JOHN C. REILLY), Ricky must kick some serious asphalt if he's to get his career back on the track, beat Girard and reclaim his fame and fortune. 'Cause as Ricky Bobby always says, IF YOU AIN'T FIRST, YOU'RE LAST!

His best movie hands down, first time I watched it seemed like the dumbest thing I've ever seen. That second run boy...let me tell you. Pay attention its extremely funny of course its silly. Look who wrote it.

This has always been my all-time favorite movie. My DVD copy was slowly deteriorating so I decided to purchase the digital version from google. After watching it I found it was a different edited version to my DVD and in my opinion actually changes the jokes quite a bit. Wish google would offer the theatrical cut as well as this one. Still a great film.

Too many stereo types to catch the first watch through. Funny and unexpected turns. Three words, "Shake and Bake"! If you liked at least one Saturday Night Live skit of his, don't miss this epic film.
