talladega nights: the ballad of ricky bobby

We haven’t been watching a lot of movies during the week lately because we’ve been working our way through the Arrested Development DVDs (highly recommended. we caught most of the episodes on TV, but missed some because they were always changing the timeslot for the show. watching them all in a row is a real treat). We’re taking a couple week break from that before we watch the final season, so it was nice to watch a movie for a change last night.

Talladega Nights was a funny movie. It was not a hilarious movie. I did not cry from laughing even once while watching it (which is how I measure my comedies). We both enjoyed it, but that’s as far as it went. I don’t think I need to summarize the plot–if you haven’t heard about this movie by now, it’s probably because you don’t want to.

I did like it a lot more than the last Will Ferrell movie I saw, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Of course, I didn’t like that movie so this one was bound to be better.

Time to watch another movie. I have a Blockbuster quota to fill before spring.
