Plot Summary

It’s 1976 and Will Ferrell is Jackie Moon - the owner, coach and star of the worst team in the ABA basketball league. Despite the success of his hit single “Love Me Sexy”, Jackie’s failures on the court put the whole team’s future on the line. Now, with the NBA merger looming, he has to put the groove in his moves and the funk in his dunk to save his team…and his reputation.

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
