Talladega Nights

After a short stint of actually going to the movies, I'm back to renting DVDs. Last night, Traci and I watched Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. We both love Will Farrell, but this was not his best performance. Though there were a few laughs, overall, the film was only mildly entertaining.

For us parents, the best line of the whole movie was during one of Ricky Bobby's prayers to "Baby Jesus."

Dear little baby Jesus, who's sittin' in his crib watchin' the Baby Einstein videos, learnin' 'bout shapes and colors. I would like to thank you for bringin' me and my moma together, and also that my kids no longer sound like retarded gang-bangers.

Oh, that dang Baby Einstein company! You make us crazy, but everyone once in a while you sneak into a Will Farrell joke and make us laugh.

While Talladega Nights was plenty watchable, if you really need to get your funny on, stick with Anchorman.
