Not bad, not great - like most of Ferrell's flix
Take the cutting room jokes in Anchor Man, a not funny Woody Harrelson, and the inability to take jokes far enough to make them funny....and you have Semi-Pro.
A few cheap laughs here and there and a bare chested Will Ferrill weren't enough to keep me awake during this poorly written failure of a comedy. Co-non stars weren't funny and the direction reminded me of any given college films.
When the openings credits started to the 70's sexual funk sung by Ferrill I thought I was in for a good time. 10 minutes later I was looking at my watch hoping for a phone call to have an excuse to relieve myself of this dull, thrown together, forgettable flick. With so much material to reference to - Short shorts, Afros, mustaches, and over the top announcers you would think there would be more comedy than a few masturbation jokes.
The only thing that saves this flick from receiving a 'below average' rating would be Ferrill himself.....and that's about it.
Save this one for a rental when you have time to consume plenty of alcohol before viewing.Read full review

I love Will Ferrell and I love this movie. It's classic Will Ferrell at his best. If you are a Will Ferrell fan and you have not seen this movie go right now to a place where movies are sold or rented, and buy or rent it. You will not regret it. It also has Andre 3000 and Woody Harrelson in it. It's great.

Another huge hit and original plot. I recommend buying this one because family, friends, and relatives will love seeing this. It's humorous and not as mature as other films. Give this one a try,
5 out of 5

Easily my 3rd favorite 70's-themed basketball comedy (behind "The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh" & "Fast Break"). Andre 3000 is the next DeNiro by the way.
