    Ferrell stars as Jackie Moon; or Jackie Mooooon!, you must have seen the trailers; the one-hit wonder who now owns a lacklustre basketball team, the Flint Tropics. Their future is threatened with an impending league merger, and your typical "underdogs trying to come out on top" caper ensues.

    I am a big Ferrell fan, but even I have to admit to disappointment. It"s one of those films where the best bits are all in the trailer; there are very funny, laugh out loud moments here, but mostly in that Jackie Mooooon! trailer. I really wish this wasn"t the case. Ferrell just has to look down the camera lens to make me laugh (a special mention for THAT HAIR; he grew his OWN hair, I love it!), it"s just that the film doesn"t have enough of Ferrell at his rip-roaring best.

    Will Arnett, another similar comedic talent to Ferrell, is underused here, as much as Woody Harrelson is perhaps overused; Harrelson is just from a different genre of comedy acting, and maybe this is where the film starts to go wrong. Just my theory; but to be honest, it does all seem slightly lazy in general, relying too much on too little from Ferrell. Much as I hate to say it, disappointing; but if you"re a fellow Ferrell fan, worth it for some classic moments.

Semi Pro stars Will Ferrel as Jackie Moon a one hit wonder who uses the profits from his chart topping song 'Love Me Sexy ' to advance his dream of owning a basketball team. But Moon's basketball team the Flint Michigan Tropics are the worst in the league and are in danger of folding. In order to survive Jackie and the Tropics must achieve the impossible - winning!

Will Ferrell stars in this sports comedy as the owner of a basketball team who has to turn around his team's fortunes for the club to survive. When former NBA player Jackie Moon (Ferrell) strikes it rich with his hit song 'Love Me Sexy', he uses the profits to fulfill his ambition and buy struggling American Basketball Association team the Flint Michigan Tropics. But with the rival leagues about to merge, only four teams from the ABA will be allowed to join the superior NBA division. With the Tropics currently the worst team in the league, Moon has to win his remaining games, by fair means or foul, and turn his band of no-hopers into a well-oiled, slam-dunkin' machine, if they are to survive.
