Votes: 160,944 | Gross: $148.21M

I am sorry to say this, but I really didnt like this film at all. It was one of the biggest wastes of my time EVER! I usually like Will Ferrell and thought "Anchorman" and "Blades of Glory" were really entertaining, but by 30 minutes into this I was debating with myself whether I should finish watching it. I didnt laugh a single time and I think the only reason I made it to the end was the hope of a decent car racing scene (I am a bit of a petrolhead you see). Absolute nonsense =[
