Ricky Bobby grows up believing that his absent father's favorite motto is the key to his fortune and fame."If you aren't first your last, " becomes the center for the foundation of his existense and when he becomes a Nascar driver this mottoe becomes more important than ever. Along with his best friens, Cal Naughten, Jr, he quickly dominates the Nascar scene and become wildly successful. At least, until his break down. Find out what happens when a gay French driver becomes his ultimate competition. There are a lot of laughs along the adventure in this movie. You won't want to miss all of the great one-liners, either.
Dear Lord Baby Jesus, I love Ricky Bobby! This movie contains always delicious comedic flavor of Will Ferrall and John C. Reilly. Although the base of this movie is a spoof on Nascar, you do not necessarily have to be a fan of Nascar. I am not and I loved and appreciated it so much. You won't be able to stop quoting this movie long after it's over. If you are a fan of Elf, Anchorman or Kicking and Screaming, you will love this movie, too. Will Ferrell is too funny when he runs around in his underwear screaming about an invisible fire and asking the Jewish God and Tom Cruise to helpl put it out. What could be funnier than that? You will laugh until you cry and if you don't, then I question your sense of humor.
