Moderate sexual references and coarse language

Director: Kent Alterman
Actors: Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Andre Benjamin, Maura Tierney, Will Arnett, David Koechner, Jackie Earle Haley

The greatest fro on Earth. Will Ferrell stars in Semi-pro, an outrageous comedy set in 1976 against the backdrop of the maverick ABA - a fast-paced, wild and crazy basketball league that rivalled the NBA and made a name for itself with innovations like the three-point shot and slam dunk contest. Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a one-hit wonder who used the profits from the success of his chart-topping song Love me sexy to achieve his dream of owning a basketball team. But Moon's franchise, the Flint Michigan Tropics, is the worst team in the league and in danger of folding when the ABA announces its plans to merge with the NBA. If they want to survive, Jackie and the Tropics must now do the seemingly impossible - win.

Could not think of a worse movie i have seen in a long time.... the parts that were mildly amusing stemed from the stupidity of the scene and the actors playing in it...... A negative ratting on this....

Not as good as I hoped. A few laughs here and there but most of the time the jokes fell very flat. It wasn't boring, just wasn't very good.

Good movie, typical Will Ferrell. Some over the top characters, funny from start to finish, but not his best work.

Some seriously funny bits in this film. Worth watching twice to pick up on them. Another reasonable notch in Will Farrell belt. Andre Benjamin is talented at everything!! Worth a watch Jiveturkeys.

Saw this movie at the cinema. Took me back to the days when ... big hair and shiny shorts were cool! I love Will Farrell movies, always a laugh. You won't regret this one, he is an oddball!

Was disappointed with this movie as I love Will Ferrel. There are definitely some funny parts but overall it falls a bit short of Ferrel's usual quality. Watchable, but not one of his best.
