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.
Rotten: An orgy of disco-era excess, it's also an interminable exercise in beating a dead horse.
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.
Rotten: The semifunny Semi-Pro is amiable enough, but you never feel there's much at stake.
