It's a funny thing. I thought the movie "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby" wasn't that great, as a whole; but when I watch individual scenes I think it rates right up there with "Citizen Kane" for best movie of all time. It's got this kind of reverse-synergy going on. I've featured some of the PSA's from the movie in previous posts (here) and... well... what can you say. Funny is funny man. I think I find it so humorous because there are so many parallels between the movie and my own life: heroic race car driver with loyal yet dumb-witted side-kick overcome adversity to uphold American greatness. ... Actually, that isn't anything like my life. ... Except for the side-kick. I had a side-kick once. Then it kind of lost it's novelty when he got a restraining order. Anyway, the clip below has one of the best lines of dialogue from a film since Casablanca. Yeah, I'm saying it.
