Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) has been at the top of the NASCAR circuit long enough that the wins, wealth and trophy wife (Leslie Bibb) have gone to his head. But his sense of manly security is dashed when new competition is introduced in the form of a gay, top-rated Formula One driver (played by Sacha Baron Cohen).

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby...
A long, long, long convoy of crude jokes, profanities and sexual innuendos accompany Ricky Bobby’s rise to fame on the NASCAR circuit. Passionate heterosexual smooching and a couple of lingering homosexual kisses are combined with the abundant discussion of male anatomy, sexual quirks and illicit activities. Ricky’s two vulgar-mouthed boys and his weed-peddling father cause some trouble at home. But Ricky’s life is totally upset when his wife leaves him for his best friend. In a fit of rage, the abandoned driver punches a man in the face and stabs himself in the leg with a knife. Cigarettes, excessive alcohol use and illegal drug use are also portrayed or discussed.
