"Talladega Slights"


Thanks to our friend Jennifer, we finally go to see "Talladega Nights" Sunday night.

If you remember, Christina, Wade Kwon and I (and technically Will, since Christina was pregnant) were all extras in the film (photos here and here). While Christina and I didn't see ourselves, Christina is pretty sure she spotted Wade. We'll have to wait until the DVD comes out to be able to scan the crowds better.

Ironically, though the two of us spent long hours in the hot Talladega sun for the filming and didn't make it on the screen, Christina's stepbrother, Chris Dabaldo, gets a credit at the end of the film for use of his song, "Click Click Boom." Knew I should have learned to play guitar.

My review? Eh. That's it. Eh. Definitely not an award-winner for Will Ferrell. Definitely not a film I'd have seen had there not been a chance to see myself, my wife or friends on the screen.

So, will I go through the sleeplessness, the long, boring hours, the heat, the low wages to be an extra again? Heck yeah. Lots of fun.
