Talladega Nights

So I checked out Will Ferrell’s new flick, and it was quality. Exactly what the doctor ordered in that it is basically an excuse for Ferrell to make a movie with his friends and be a redneck racecar driver. Shake and Bake! So many funny lines and what not, all the kids will be reciting dialogue the rest of the summer.

For your reading enjoyment, I’ve also added Ferrell’s classic commencement speech at Harvard in 2003.  Almost as good as Conan O’Briens, which is the gold standard.

  1. Thanks for the transcript of the Harvard speech, a classic by all standards (whatever those are). Do you have the Conan one as well?
