Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
I had moderately high hopes for this movie, if only because of the good reviews we'd read. Were they watching the same movie? We also (normally) like Will Ferrell (Dave perhaps more so than I), but this movie was terrible! I thought it might be more of a satire of American culture, with the Nascar fans, George Bush-isms, etc., but it was simply trash. We went with our friends Rachel and Kedron. Dave apologized profusely throughout the movie, and we told Rachel that she could inflict any punishment she wished upon us. Next time, she gets to pick the movie.
Are you the kind of person that "has" to see a movie when it gets such bad reviews? Resist temptation! Don't do it!! You have been warned. For further proof, here's Kedron's review he wrote for the New York Times. (His review title is "Cringeworthy.")
By the way, Dave showered after this movie. I would have, but I had to get to a jewelry party. At least I got to cover myself (and the shame?!) with pretty jewelry.
