I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Putting the funk into the dunk.
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.
Sure it has a few good laughs and i's good some pretty good performances from Ferrell and Harrelson, the film is an awkwardly-paced and easily predictable sports film. Don't get me wrong, this was an enjoyable watch. Some exciting basketball sequences are cool and a lot of things are thrown in to make it longer. The characters are all unlikeable but the way Ferrel and Harrelson perform them make them so interesting. The rest of the cast seems like they don't care at all though compared to those 2. Overall it's an okay film. I don't have much to say about it really.
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.
Yay- I just turned my Letter-boxed profile into a pro account.
Semi on the way :-)
So exciting :)
It's not directed by Adam McKay, but it does a good job of making you think it could've been. Lots of ball jokes, given the premise, and quite a few good cameos by characters who seemed stronger than the main cast. The bear in this movie ended up killing its real life trainer. However, this was well after the film itself was pronounced dead, mind you.
One of my favorite Will Ferrell movies, the subject is great and I love the period that the film takes place in.
Enjoyable, ridiculous, throwaway fun.
Will is so miserably wonderful in this full of comedy film.
My favorite Ferrell movie.
Just not really funny. It just was sooooooooo boring, the cast didn't even seemed interested in the script, it felt like when they all said their lines it was like 'okay we have to just say it to get money in our back pocket's' which is the truth.
Bad comedy is the fucking worst ugh
I think this movie just never got its due because of the name
Or maybe I just like it because Iove the ABA and WHA
Very funny movie with an interesting setting and fantastic camera work. I think this movie is better than most people think. I also like the fact that the language is R-rated. Glad I watched it again.
Make it Busch...Bavarian. LAYING LOW. Fuck this, spumoni. Father Pat the ref. Final score is inconclusive. Pancake. Love Me Sexy is the most genius song ever written. Alley Oop; yes, that is easier to say. Swedish Porn is the only thing to get me through Nam.
I love this movie sexy. Makes me so happy I can't feel my arms. If this makes me wrong, b/c the silliness is off the charts in this one, then I do not want to be right.
It was self-aware enough to be funny.
