Talladega Nights is a ridiculously funny and highly quotable buddy comedy about childhood friends and teammates Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. who rise to fame in the NASCAR circuit. With a win-at-all-costs attitude, Ricky Bobby becomes a fan favourite and the nemesis of Jean Girard, a French Formula 1 driver, who wants his #1 spot. A satire of American stock car racing, Ricky Bobby is the ultimate baby-Jesus loving champion – shake and bake! (Klaus Ming September 2016).
