Some of you might have noticed there are several comments on the Hear Ye, Hear Ye! post that may seem disjointed and strange…On the other hand, if you were one of the moviegoers that contributed to the $40 million+ in opening weekend sales, you will recognize those comments as a product of Talladega Nights.
Sunday, I saw the movie with 4 male friends, one female friend, and several pitchers of beer at the local Studio Movie Grill. We laughed for hours! Is this movie as good at Old School?

And if you are like my mother and are wondering, “does he show that fat little body of his in this movie, too?” The answer is a resounding, yes!
