As Parkland real estate owners prepare for the hurricane, they may be stuck at home for the next few nights. At least folks can watch a memorable DVD, such as the 2006’sTalladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are childhood friends and NASCAR racing stars in the former Saturday Night Live star’s funniest role of his career. The film is packed with quick one-liners.
From Talladega Nights’ introduction featuring Ricky Bobby being born in the back of a race car to the man starring in television commercials for hunting knives, and Japanese goods, spectators will be rolling. His first interview on TV is quite memorable, as the driver doesn’t know what to do with his hands and the news anchorman gentleman keeps pushing the racer’s arms away from his face.
Some unforgettable one-liners include “His Wonder Bread car is toast,” and “It’s the fastest who gets paid.” The celebrity’s wife is gorgeous, but his spoiled children are always jacked up on Mountain Dew. Dale Earnhardt makes a guest appearance in Talladega Nights, right after Ricky signs a baby’s forehead. Quoting the great Colonel Sanders, he and his best buddy, Cal, go together “like Chinese food and chocolate pudding.”
Spectators in homes for sale in Parkland favorite parts of the film include when Ricky wins a race in reverse, and uses the expression, “Shake and bake.” After all, it rhythms and they’re both verbs. He also based his career around something his father told him as a child, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” After the driver lived his whole life around the statement, his dad informs him that he was merely high when he made such a statement.
Following a crash, Ricky runs around shouting, “Help me Tom Cruise.” The imaginative character is darting around the track in just his underwear, thinking that his whole body is on fire. Upon recovery, he believes that his legs are paralyzed until he sticks himself with a knife. He learns to race with a live cougar in the passenger seat to overcome his fears of driving. Behind the wheel blindfolded, he plows through a neighbor’s house as he’s learning to “feel” the wheel. The driver eventually loses his license and ends up delivering pizzas on his Huffy, followed by a public bus.
The greatest surprise to movie lovers is the appearance of a gay Eurotrash driver from France. The memorable villain is played by none other than Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Borat. Before Borat entered the States with a comedy classic of his own, a French competitor arrives on the scene giving the two racers in Talladega a riotous run for their money. The French competitor is sponsored by Perrier, and sounds like a dog that ate too much peanut butter, sponsored by “Formula Ugh.” Cohen’s multi talented husband spends time showing his world-class horses, which are also gay. His crew chief even won the Nobel Prize for physics. Maybe the flick really can be a distraction from Hurricane Irma for Parkland luxury homeowners.
