Jackie Moon is the owner, promoter, coach, and star player of the Flint Michigan Tropics of the American Basketball Association (ABA). In 1976 before the ABA collapses, the National Basketball Association (NBA) plans to merge with the best teams of the ABA at the end of the season. Only the top four teams will make the move and the worst teams will fold. The Tropics are the worst team in the league and if they want to make it to the NBA, Jackie Moon must rally his team and start winning. The only problem is the fact that Jackie Moon is not really the coach and star basketball player he thinks he is. To keep his team from oblivion and leave his mark in the city, Jackie Moon must inspire his team to win fourth place in the playoffs.
Woody Harrelson 👍
Akin to a half-written Funny or Die sketch stretched to feature length, but there are worse things that watching genuinely funny famous people goof off.
'Semi-Pro: A True Underdog Story' tells the tale of those lovable characters from Average Joe's gymnas.....Wait that's a different film, or is it?
Remember when Andre Benjamin starred in films? That was a weird time wasn't it?
Will Ferrell is very hit or miss, his contently tries his hardest to create these unique off the wall characters that mostly end up falling flat in an endless scene of saying random things until somebody laughs. 'Semi-Pro' see Farrell in his sports stars stage, this time its Basketball.
Normally the funniest thing about a Will Farrell film isn't the man himself but the supporting cast, this is the case once again, with Will Arnett, Woody Harrelson and Andrew Daly doing most the heavy lifting when it comes to the jokes.
This is probably one of the stronger Farrell comedies, but that isn't really saying much and could be easily lumped in with any number of his recent efforts.
Yay- I just turned my Letter-boxed profile into a pro account.
Semi on the way :-)
So exciting :)
Enjoyable, ridiculous, throwaway fun.
so much better than i anticipated.
*love me sexy, Jackie Moooon*
I saw this way back when, but remember nothing about it.
There were some solid laughs, but they were few and far between.
"Suck my cock, I'll murder your family!"
This thing is just way too much fun. A cool little flick to put on for a hearty laugh. It has the necessary stakes for a comedy of this style and the drama fits very well with the comedy. Oh, and the cameos are great. Go watch it right now if you haven't.
Nothing more than you can expect from a Will Ferrell film really, enough laughs to make it worth while. Beyond that, there is nothing more to it than what you may expect.
"Jackie Moon: Everybody panic! It's just like the Titanic but it's full of bears!"
All of these Will Ferrell movies are the same, which isn't terrible I guess.
When Jackie Moon made it big with the hit song “Love Me Sexy” he decided to purchase his hometown ABA team, the Flint Tropics. Not only is he the owner, but he is also the coach and the starting power forward. However when the league agrees to a merger that means that all but four teams will disband with the remaining four teams going to the NBA. Desperate to send the Tropics to the NBA, Jackie pulls out all the stops with marketing schemes to galvanize the fan base and even trading the team’s laundry machine to acquire veteran player named Monix. Can the Tropics come together and make it to NBA stardom?
So I was on a bit of…
Solita commedia con Ferrell quindi siamo sul demenziale.
Questa volta non funziona tutto come dovrebbe seppur gli anni 70 siano ricreati molto bene.Si sente la mancanza di un McKay alla regia forse,però vedere Harrelson(un po' sprecato a dire il vero)sul campo da basket fa sempre piacere.Ci si diverte ma molto meno del previsto.
"Putting the funk into the dunk."
Certainly wouldn't have this as top tier Will Ferrell but Semi-Pro is considerably better than his recent films like Get Hard or Daddy's Home.
Zany Will Ferrell can be a bit too much sometimes but it suits this film to a tee. It's not as good a sports comedy as Blades of Glory but it's definitely easy to watch and provides enough laughs.
Woody Harrelson and Will Arnett are also welcome in any kind of supporting role in a comedy so they only add to the humour.
These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
