3.0 out of 5 stars Here comes the Alley... and there goes the Oop! Dec 16 2008
By Amanda Richards HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

Time: The `70s

1. Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a one hit wonder who owns, coaches and plays with his basketball team the Flint Tropics.
2. As you would expect, the team isn't doing very well
3. Down and out, but not giving up, Moon negotiates a chance for his team to join the NBA
4. Maybe white men can't jump, but he trades a major appliance for Ed Monnix (Woody Harrelson) anyway
5. Coffee Black (Andre Benjamin) finds his form and soon the team is no longer considered the "OutKast" of the ABA
6. Moon raises the entertainment level to include dancing seahorses and bear wresting at half time
7. After receiving some valuable advice from Patti Labelle, the team almost achieves the predictable.

This is typical Will Ferrell stuff - I'd rate it better than Step Brothers, but worse than Blades of Glory. Ferrell's over the top antics are the main reason for watching this movie, even though at times it's more like morbid fascination. Andre Benjamin is good, even though his impressive afro is even better, and Harrelson? He hasn't changed a bit.

Rent (don't buy) for the basketball, and stay for the half-time show.

Jackie Moon: Everybody panic! It's just like the Titanic but it's full of bears!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ferrell and Harrelson bring their "A" games June 5 2008
Format:DVD
Semi-Pro continues the astounding comedy streak of Will Ferrell. It seems that Ferrell can do no wrong when it comes to sports comedies and this one ranks up there with the best. The movie's about the ABA/NBA merger that happened in the 70's. Ferrell is the owner/coach/player of the Flint Tropics who are desperately seeking to be one of the 4 CBA teams approved to merge with the NBA.

The lengths to which Ferrell goes to try to achieve this are outrageous. Woody harrelson is also great as the washed-up ex-nba player who joins the team at mid-season. Great laughs and good repeat value. Recommended to own, as is the case with most of Farrell's movies.

3.0 out of 5 stars Semi-Funny with a decent story May 4 2008
By M. B Cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Come on everybody! We're going back! Back to the 70's. Back to the bell bottoms and the big fro's. Back to the disco dancing and roller skating days. Back to when basketball players wore really...REALLY... short shorts.

Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon who made a ton of money from his song "Love Me Sexy". What does Jackie go and do with it? He's buys himself a basketball team in the ABA called the Flint `Michigan' Tropicals. Jackie is a one man show who not only owns the Tropicals, but also coaches them. And to get fans into the stadium, he even promotes them with outlandish themes such as jumping over 10 cheerleaders while he's wearing roller-skates. Then one day it's decided that the ABA and the NBA will merge into one, and that 4 teams will go to the NBA. Jackie convinces them to let the 4 BEST teams go, not the 4 most popular. The commish, to make it harder on the not so popular teams, also says they have to bring in at least 2000 fans each game. So Jackie tries everything from free Corn Dog night to Jackie Wrestles Bear night. There are a decent amount of funny parts in the movie, but in all seriousness, the story is better than the comedy this time around.

To me the comedy seemed extremely forced in some parts. Usually Will Ferrell can just flow comedy out of his mouth without even a problem. But here it seemed he didn't have much help from his supporting cast when it came to impromptu time. Sometimes Will's antics will make you laugh and sometimes you wish Will would just put his comedy on hold for a few minutes so he could be fresh again. Now don't get me wrong though, there are funny parts in the movie. I for one liked the bear wrestling scene and also the interaction between Jackie Moon and the ref that is a priest. But that also has to do with the language that is used and there is a LOT of fowl language coming out of Ferrell's mouth in this movie. MF'r, F That, C-Sucker, and a lot more. I'm sure there will be more on the unrated version, but I have yet to see that one.

I'd also like to say that Andre Benjamin (from the rap group Outkast) did a really good job in this movie playing Clarence `Coffee' Black. The interaction on the bus between him and Woody Harrelson had me cringing in a good way cause I could just feel the tension between the two. Also Andre, with his big fro and all, just seemed like he should've lived in this time. Everything about him just seemed 70's. Great job.

All in all, this is definitely a rent especially if you like Ferrell. It had it's funny parts and a decent story, but I'm not sure if it was enough to actually give this a buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his Best March 16 2008
By RG69 - Published on Amazon.com

This is a decent comedy. I don't think it deserves to be called terrible. But it is very uneven. Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon a 70's one hit singing wonder who uses the money to buy an ABA team. When the ABA decides to merge with the NBA 4 teams will go to the NBA with the rest being disbanded including his Flint Tropics. Jackie then comes up with a plan to be part of the merge and tries to inspire his team to 4th place. Ferrell plays his usual character which is getting a little old at this point. The movie is full of great comedy actors and a few decent jokes. Not everything works in this movie, but it is not as bad as some make it out to be. It won't last long in the theaters so I would just wait for the unrated dvd release in a few months.

2.0 out of 5 stars Consistent Like A Shaq Free Throw Aug. 3 2009
By Mike - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Synopsis: It's 1976 in Flint, Michigan. Jackie Moon (Will Ferrell) owns, operates, and plays for the Flint Tropics, which is the laughing stock of the American Basketball Association. Upon hearing the news that there will be a merger between the ABA and the NBA, Moon rejoices... until he hears that only the best teams will make the merger while the others will fold. Distressed, Jackie starts to inspire his group to be better, which includes bringing in veteran player Ed Monix (Woody Harrelson) to help fortify the playing style of the emerging Coffee Black (Andre Benjamin). Will the team succeed long enough to make it to the NBA?

Now, you can't all expect them to be hits with Will Ferrell and this is definitely an example of that. The jokes were tired after a while and while an uplifting story, it just seemed quite dull in comparison to the other comedies that have been recently released. I'd recommend it to die-hard fans of The Frat Pack, but other movie viewers probably won't enjoy it as much.

This has to be one of the best comedy gems that went relatively unnoticed. Worth a watch if you are a fan of Will ferrel's more SNL type humour.

3.0 out of 5 stars FERRELL FANS KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AND THEY WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.....MUCH! Feb. 28 2009
By ! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The Will Ferrell movie machine keeps cranking out film after film. Unfortunately, they haven't been getting better. On a good note, they aren't all that bad either. This film has some very funny moments, but none as good as Ferrell's earlier outings. If your a fan you know what to expect and if your not.......why are you reading this?
