SEMI-PRO

Semi-Pro takes place in the 1970s and is all about a small time basketball team named the Flint Michigan Tropics. The head coach, owner, and promoter is Jackie Moon (Will Ferrell) and he and his team dream of expanding to be part of the big time NBA. However Jackie is told that in order to actually have a chance at getting into the NBA, the Tropics have to get at least 2000 fans in their stadium by deadlines. The problem is that the Tropics do a little more dancing, fighting, and flailing around the court than actually playing the game. So Jackie hires a new team player named Monix (Woody Harrelson) who actually used to play for the NBA. From there on in it's up to Jackie, Monix, and the whole team to fire up some wild and crazy events for the crowd and actually learn to play the sport properly for once in order to reach their dreams.

Will Ferrell has made a bunch of funny movies already. Whether it be Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Blades of Glory, and Old School. I haven't seen all of them but I heard they were all funny, mostly because of Will Ferrell's comedic brilliance. Semi-Pro is a funny film but it's really only semi-funny, whereas the rest of Ferrell's movies were hilarious romps. Semi-Pro seems undercooked in the hilarious gag department offering a few very funny moments, but the rest of the movie only has little jokes that usually only offer giggles. My favorite moment in Semi-Pro is when Jackie Moon gets called on a foul by the ref (Also the church priest), and Jackie yells in his face an obscenity and "I'll kill your family!" Another scene that will end up a Will Ferrell classic is when he wrestles a bear, and it ends up attacking him and then getting loose in the stadium.

The music in Semi-Pro is awesome with its funky 70s soundtrack. There's also a song played through the movie sung by Jackie Moon called "Love Me Sexy", and it is as funny a song as Will Ferrell can bring. The rest of the cast includes Outkast's talented Andre Benjamin, Maura Tierney, and Will Arnett and Andrew Daly as two hilarious TV show hosts and broadcasters for the Tropics. Woody Harrelson does a fine job in Semi-Pro but he's never funny, all because the script makes his character Monix serious instead of funny. Maura Tierney really just sits around without much to really do, and even Andre Benjamin's character is made too serious to give us any laughs. I just don't understand why so many of the characters in Semi-Pro were so serious. This is a Will Ferrell comedy, everyone should have some funny moments. This problem is what makes Semi-Pro a mixed bag because only half the movie is really very funny, the rest of the movie is pulled down by far too much seriousness.

Will Ferrell and the musical soundtrack are what elevate Semi-Pro to the point where I can recommend it. Will Ferrell is still a very funny guy and I'm sure he has a lot more hilarious comedies on the way in the mere future. But Semi-Pro pretty much gives Ferrell all the funny moments, when his other movies like Anchorman gave the other characters classic moments as well. I give Semi-Pro a 2.5 out of 4, and a recommendation. It has its moments but is dragged down by far too many unfunny characters.

A better Will Ferrell flick

I'm not a big Will Ferrell fan, but I do like this one. Some comedies try to stand solely on profanity and vulgarity for laughs but this one didn't fall into that trap. Though there was quite a bit of profanity it wasn't used simply for cheap laughs. "Semi-Pro" has a "Nacho Libre" or "Blades of Glory" flavor to it with a more mainstream style of R-rated humor. As far as Ferrell movies go, I feel "Semi-Pro" was not as good as "Elf" and "Blades of Glory" but better than "The Other Guys."Read full review...

If you've seen Knocked up or Anchorman and liked it, this DVD is for you. 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,

Has Will Ferrell ever made a bad movie?

Will Ferrell, in my opinion, is one of the funniest guys on the planet! He makes this film appealing and entertaining even if you're not into sports and basketball. He plays his character as Jackie Moon with sarcasm and that's why it's so great! It's definitely a must see & buy!Read full review...

Semi-Pro(Will Frerrell, Woody Harrelson, Andre 3000)

Could have been a better-written movie; Ferrell does his usual bumbling and stumbling about, with Harrelson turning a good, of not great, performance as a nearly washed-up ballplayer! The best performance seemed to come from the bear that went berserk and attacked the crowd, and "Jackie Moon's" friend, repeatedly! A couple of laughs, but overall, I'm glad it only cost me $4.00!!!Read full review...
