Synopsis


Semi-Pro
The American Basketball Association is on the verge of collapse, and when a former NBA benchwarmer returns to his hometown of Flint, MI, to whip his former team into shape for the playoffs, redemption is just a free throw away in this period sports comedy starring Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson. Penned by Old School scribe Scot Armstrong, Semi-Pro tells the tale of a 1970s-era basketball player who doesn't have much luck in the NBA, but vows to leave his mark on the sport by coaching the Flint Tropics. When the upstart ABA league agrees to be absorbed by the NBA, only four teams will be allowed in. Jackie Moon (Ferrell) must orchestrate a successful season both on the court, and financially off the court with the help of many odd promotional events, in order to remain in the sport he loves. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Will Ferrells the Man

    Posted

    If you're a Will Ferrell fan you will definitely appreciate this movie. Full of laughs from start to finish. I thought his days of making funny movies were over. I HATED Blades of Glory although Talladega Knights was pretty good. I'd say this beats Talladega though. It just has more comical scenes throughout the movie opposed to a few hillarious scenes which we all saw in the trailers. Anyone can say there's bad acting when you're watching one of these silly comedies. This isn't for the more serious viewers, however i'd agree Will is better with PG13. Go out and see/buy this movie!

    Mildly entertaining

    Now this movie isn't exactly going to blow you away or change your perception about anything, but in a sense of watching a movie for the sake of being entertained, that movie accomplishes just that. The movie had a good ABA and 70's theme to it and the movie kept its authenticity by playing to the times. Will Ferrell plays to the same mannerisms as he has in so many of his other films so don't expect much of a change in that aspect. Overall, it's still a good film that's worth watching in my opinion.

    Way over the top!

    This has got to be one of the worst Will Ferrell movies I have ever scene. It seems as though he is starting to get over the top with his comedies, and this one is the tip of the iceberg. There is more bad language than you would expect, which I guess is supposed to be funny. All of the humor is predictable and just plain stupid (over the top). What used to make his movies funny was some of the "normal" guy activities, but now it is just being pushed to the extreme.

    Worst Will Ferell Movie

    Posted
    Arai

    This is one of Will's worst movies ever, story was dragging and pointless. The comedy was just plain, not even funny at all. I wouldn't recommend buying this DVD, or even waste your time watching it. My grade for this movie is a (F).

    not very funny

    slepin

    I did not find this movie to be very funny. There was only one scene that I laughed at. 90 minutes for 2-3 minutes of laughs definitely isn't worth it. Furthermore, Will ferrell in short shorts is not a pretty sight.
