    Will Ferrell's trademark off-the-wall lunacy kicks in for a comedy sure to score big with the whole family! Phil Weston (Ferrell) is a mild-mannered suburban dad - who's suddenly transformed into a caffeine-fueled sports maniac when he becomes the coach of his son's unruly soccer team. But when the championship pits Phil's underdog team against the squad coached by his own domineering dad (Oscar winner Robert Duvall), it's game on for the most uproarious mismatch of the season! Suit up for fun, Ferrell-style, with the comedy Ebert & Roeper give "Two Thumbs Up!"

    4.0 out of 5 stars Nonstop laughs the whole family can enjoy... July 6, 2007
    I'm a huge fan of Will Ferrell and so I was excited when this movie was released. Although I never got a chance to see it in the theater I rushed to buy the DVD once it was released much to my wife's dismay, since she doesn't share the same love of Ferrell. The greatest thing about this film is that, while Ferrell may have to reign in some of the outlandish remarks that make him so funny in order to keep a lower rating and appeal to children and parents alike, he still maintains the same enthusiasm for his work and delivers a performance that is over the top, hilarious and spontaneous, and one that even my wife found enjoyable. That's probably one of the most commendable traits here. It serves as a really great family sports comedy, appealing to children but also giving the parents something to laugh at.

    The film follows Phil Weston as he matches wits with his stubborn and overbearing father Buck. Buck, played by Robert Duvall, has always been disappointed with Phil who never shared his father's love of sports and everything manly. Instead Phil grew up to run a vitamin store, something Buck is somewhat ashamed of. Throughout Phil's life his father always had to be the best, even if that meant trampling his own son down in the process, and now, years later when Phil's son Sammy gets the same treated from his dear old Grandpa, Phil has to take maters into his own hands. He does that by offering to coach the loser team Buck traded Sammy to. Buck is unsupportive but in the end it's the competition between the two Weston men that finally bonds them like they've never been before.

    Will Ferrell shines here, with all the quarks and loud mouthed antics that make his more adult oriented fare so entertaining.

    4.0 out of 5 stars for kicks December 28, 2013
    By Joy
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    This is a fun sports movie as well as a look at relationships between parents and their (sometimes grown) children. Phil (Will Ferrell) is likable as a dad who inadvertently ends up coaching his son's soccer team with Mike Ditka, hysterical as the assistant coach. Phil's own father and rival coach (Robert Duvall) does a great job of lampooning the all-too-serious competitive nature that often accompanies the over-zealous parents of children on sports teams. Phil is determined to be a different dad than the one he had, but discovers a side to himself he didn't know existed as a caffeinated coach.

    4.0 out of 5 stars "Your name is liar cuz your telling lies!" August 10, 2006
    Okay, so sports movies are a dime-a-dozen, as are Will Ferrell movies. The difference is that sports movies can get repetitive and boring, while Ferrell movies can get repetitive but, at least to me, are never boring. I love Will, I just think he's absolutely hilarious, and his character in 'Kicking and Screaming' is no exception!

    Ferrell plays Phil Weston, a vitamin salesman who lives under a shell his over critical father Buck (Duvall who is brilliantly evil here) placed him in as a child. Phil swore never to do that to his son who seemed to get the same sports handicaps that Phil grew up with. When Buck trades his own grandson to the loser team this sends Phil into a vengeful state, to the point where he enlists the help of Mike Ditka (yes, the real Ditka) to help him coach the team of misfit children in order to play his fathers team of super athletes.

    Phil's transformation from shy and timid to uncontrollably competitive is absolutely hilarious! This may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it has enough in it to satisfy any fan of Ferrell and even some who just want a decent family comedy. Unlike the similar 'Bad News Bears' 'Kicking and Screaming' has nothing offensive and is just plain clean fun. I recommend it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Be warned, muchacho! You're in the show, now! July 17, 2006
    Let's get a few things straight right off the bat, okay?

    1. Not every movie ever made has to be thought provoking and artistically satisfying.

    2. Will Ferrell will probably never be mentioned in the same breath as De Niro and Pacino.

    If you can get on board with these two statements, then you might just enjoy "Kicking & Screaming". Let's face it, the premise is almost absurd, but isn't absurdity the stuff of good comedy?

    Phil Weston (Will Ferrell) is upset that his son Sam is nothing more than a bench warmer on the soccer team coached by his father Buck Weston (Robert Duvall). To appease Phil, Buck trades Sam to a rival soccer team so he can get more playing time, and through a series of events Phil becomes the coach of Sam's new team. The only problem is Phil knows nothing about soccer. What follows is a string of hilarious moments that culminate with a Father versus Son coached championship match.

    As a whole this is not a great movie, but there are many moments that are laugh out loud hilarious, and it seems the more you watch it, the more you like it. Ferrell is in rare form as he slowly transforms from the milquetoast, quiet, inept coach to the win at all cost clone of his father. His rants will leave you with a ton of quotable lines that will make you laugh just thinking about them. Obviously Will Ferrell movies are targeted to a specific audience; I guess I happen to be one of them.

    Grade: B

    Recommendation: Buy it, if you can get it cheap
