Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

"The story of a man who could only count to #1"

Lifelong friends and national idols Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton Jr. have earned their NASCAR stripes with their uncanny knack of finishing races in the first and second slots, respectively, and slinging catchphrases like "Shake and bake!" But when a rival French driver coasts onto the track to challenge their records, they'll have to floor it to retain their top-dog status.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When Ricky gets out of the hospital and sees that Jean Girard has replaced him as the lead driver the song that can be heard is "Marie Douceur, Marie Colère", sung in French by Marie Laforêt to the tune of The Rolling Stones' "Paint It, Black".
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: After Susan flashes her breasts to Carly, she covers back herself up. After having done so, the camera cuts to her tying up her cardigan where the outline of strapless bra is clearly seen.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): During the restart when both Jean Girard and Ricky Bobby are the only 2 remaining cars with 6 laps left, they start side-by-side. In NASCAR, all lead-lap cars restart single-file, and with 10 or fewer laps left, all carts restart single-file, regardless of being on the same lap or not.
  • Cal, Ricky and Girard were all actually introduced during driver introductions at the 2005 UAW Ford 500 at Talladega. Ricky and Cal were cheered, but when Girard was introduced as a driver from France driving the Perrier car, the entire crowd started booing without any prompting.
