Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson and André Benjamin star in this hilarious three-pointer of sports action, outrageous laughs and ’70s groove! It’s 1976 and the only thing sexier than Jackie Moon (Ferrell) is his incredible career. The owner, head coach and star player of the Flint Tropics – not to mention the smooth vocals behind hit single "Love Me Sexy" – is at the top of his game. But, when it appears the Tropics might not survive an NBA merger, Jackie vows to turn up the heat and lead his team to glory in the most hysterical comedy ever to put the funk back in the dunk!
I like Will Ferrell films, but this is not one of Ferrell's better efforts, with very few laughs and a cliched underdog storyline. If you've not seen them rent 'Step Brothers', 'Blades Of Glory' or 'Talladega Nights' instead, all of which are far funnier.
I think you have to be in the mood for a Will Farrell film. You cannot watch them if you are feeling critical. If you catch the wave however it will make you smile for 88 minutes. I thought it was on a par with Blades of Glory my self, less sexual innuendo, more slap stick.
