It’s time to “Shake and Bake” when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases the hilarious $145 million summer blockbuster, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, on Rated and Unrated for the DVD versions and unrated for the Blu-ray Disc December 12th. The DVD will have a suggested retail price of $28.95 and the Blu-ray will carry a suggest retail price of $38.96.
From director and writer Adam McKay (Anchorman) along with writer Will Ferrell (Anchorman, Elf), Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby chronicles the man with two first names, NASCAR driver Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell), as he tries to gain his father’s respect and love while fulfilling his need for speed.
Also starring Oscar-nominee John C. Reilly (Best Supporting Actor, Chicago, 2002), Sacha Baron Cohen (TV’s “Da Ali G Show”), Gary Cole (Office Space, Dodgeball), Oscar-nominee Michael Clarke Duncan (Best Supporting Actor, The Green Mile, 1999), Leslie Bibb (TV’s “Popular”, TV’s “Nip/Tuck”), Jane Lynch (The 40 Year Old Virgin, TV’s “The L Word”) and Oscar-nominee Amy Adams (Best Supporting Actress, Junebug, 2005).
The fastest man on four wheels, Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) is one of the greatest drivers in NASCAR history. A big, hairy American winning machine, Ricky has everything a daredevil could want: a luxurious mansion, a smokin’ hot wife (Leslie Bibb) and all the fast food he can eat. But Ricky’s turbo-charged lifestyle hits an unexpected speed bump when he’s bested by flamboyant Euro-idiot Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen) and reduced to a fear-ridden wreck. Losing his wife and job to best bud and fellow fool, Cal Naughton, Jr. (John C. Reilly), Ricky must kick some serious asphalt if he is to get his career back on track, beat Girard and reclaim his fame and fortune.
