When an effeminate Formula One driver decides to head west and conqueror the world of NASCAR, defeating Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell)becomes his top priority.  The newcomer is immediately successful, and effortlessly outmaneuvers his opponents. 

As Ricky's fame and fortune dwindles so does his wife's interest in him, and she quickly dumps the former champ.  Deprived of his family and career, Ricky's morale enters a downward spiral.  He vacates his mansion and returns to his mother's basement, spending his days delivering pizzas.  The fallen driver must attempt to channel the struggles of his youth to escape an impending adulthood of darkness.

Talladega Nights earned a respectable $162 million at the end of its theatrical run, easily recuperating its hefty $72 million budget.  The picture earned both an MTV Movie Award and a Teen Choice Award.
