Ferrell films can vary from one end of the scale to the other, he can be funny and ingenious or a complete annoying twat, unfortunately many of his films do come under the 'annoying twat' label for me.
This is not funny, Ferrell's worst by far, it may be because car racing just isn't a great source material for a comedy, I dunno. Cohen is very good as the French racer, he comes across quite well, almost like a kind of dastardly Disney baddie in the realms of 'Thorndyke' in 'The Love Bug' but the rest is just silly and simply unfunny.
The characters are all rather un-likeable too, it just seems Ferrell is trying to make a comedy out of every 'sport', and this isn't even an interesting 'sport', NASCAR is dull dull dull if you ask me, but I am British, if you like this type of racing you may like it.
