    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 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

    3.0 out of 5 stars Formulaic clich� true but colorfully honest. May 14, 2006
    I liked this movie. Sometimes a 'simple' movie can be colorful enough, and entertaining enough, without having to be great or artsy. 'Kicking and Screaming' was very formulaic. I actually found myself predicting each step and outcome as the plot unfolded--- the adult abused child, his dad, and his son, and the three generations colliding. The re-play of the overbearing father thing, the adult man vowing to never be like his father, but then getting accidentally caught up in the same dynamic himself. then the sports movie redemption, etc., etc.

    It sounds like a clich?, and it is--- but, oddly, I found myself more surprised than annoyed as each clich? denouement surfaced. I kept thinking, as the clich? loomed--- 'Nahhhh... they wouldn't do that. There must be some slick tricky twist coming up.' Nope. No twists, no tricks--- all the clich?s play through exactly like you expected them to. But there was a certain courage and honesty about that, which I greatly admired. They had a simple. straight-forward, no-nonsense formula story, which they played out exactly as that. It was very honest. Robert Duvall--- always great. Will Ferrell, always funny. Mike Ditka, as an actor--- he's a great football coach.

    Overall, Kicking & Screaming is a great family sports film that fulfills all comedic expectations. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for lighthearted, silly, and all-around fun entertainment. (That'd probably be somewhere around most people or so, wouldn't it?)

    4.0 out of 5 stars HMMM.... October 11, 2005
    This is a cute picture about father and son rivalry that finally gets squashed by a game of soccer....Will Ferrell and Robert Duvall play father and son, who through the years cannot seem to get it together, Duvall's character (Bucky Weston) seems to find fault in everything that his son (Paul)does, and when the two have sons on the same crosses over to the next generation!! Paul's son Sam plays on a soccer team that grandpa Buck coaches, only to be left as the bench warmer...then gets traded to the other his own grandfather!

    When the other teams coach does not show up to a game, Paul takes the antics as the team with uncoordinated, goofy players run down the track figure it out!!

    Great movie about family and teamwork....:)
