About the Movie

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 rivaled 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 Moons 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Judging from this low-scoring sports comedy about the mystique of men with balls, Will Ferrell needs to call a time-out from belly baring to refocus his fan-favorite game of playing clueless male doofuses. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: An orgy of disco-era excess, it's also an interminable exercise in beating a dead horse. – Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: There isn't enough going on in Semi-Pro, comically or otherwise, to sustain the movie even through its first half-hour. This may be one of the most sluggish sports comedies ever made -- even the supposedly rousing final sequence feels belabored. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: The semifunny Semi-Pro is amiable enough, but you never feel there's much at stake. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Dec 9, 2008

Will Ferrel has done it again!

To start things off, this movie has one of in my eyes the most humorous actors out right now: Will Ferrel. He never fails to have me laughing and he proved that mark in this must have movie.

ferrell is hilarious

this is one of the funniest movies that ive ever seen,,,make sure to get the unrated version

Hilarious movie!!!

Will Ferrel is the man, so may I be the first to give this movie 5 stars. For those of you that disagree, try finding a comedic actor that can pull off a movie like this as well as Ferrel does. Good luck, though!
