I couldn't be able to fit that title on the subject section, just the first bit of it. But this looks like another dumb movie alright, TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY. Yeah, this film stars Will Ferrell, other stars include Michael Clarke Duncan, John C. Reilly, Amy Adams, and newcomer Sasha Baron Cohen, and is directed by Adam McKay (ANCHORMAN). I'm picking this film as a possible RAZZIE contender for this year. Here are a bunch of reasons why:

1. Nothing in this film seems to be any good, not even the acting.

2. The scene with Will Ferrell running around the race track in his tighty-whities...sickening!

3. A part where Ferrell stabs his leg with a knife, like, dude, only an idiot does something like that.

4. Seeing the trailer for this movie, I just kept thinking, "Oh yeah, definitely a RAZZIE!" 

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

The sad thing is that with the growing popularity of NASCAR and its good old boy/redneck roots, this subject is ripe for an outstanding satirical movie. Alas, Hollywood has opted, as usual, to take the low road. Will Ferrel has now cemented his stature alongside the likes of Adam Sandler and Jim Carrey as "comic" actors who can instantly transform any comedy into pathos.

I just want to know WHY Will Farrell is being given the star treatment. He totally doesn't deserve it. He has no range as a performer. He simply mugs and pratfalls his way through everything he is in. Totally unappealing, and not even funny on top of it.

Really the only truly great role Ferrell's had has been Mustafa in the Austin Powers films, which was really is hilarious ("I'm in an extraordinarily large amount of pain down here.").  While he was good to a degree in Elf as well, the film was too heavily shackled by a formulaic plot to truly break out, and Ferrell's reliance on questionable material for younger audiences partially sunk his character there. 

Not to worry too much though: As the years go by, he will get old. And since Hollywood is scared stiff of old age they'll inevitably hurl him uncermoniously out the door and we won't have to worry about him any more (or will we?  Seeing what some other SNL alums have done for money once the execs stopped caring for them...).  At the rate he's going, it'll be sooner rather than later that, as a certain (in)famous motivational speaker once said, he'll end up "LIVIN' in a VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!!!!!!!!"
