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.

Semi-Pro isn't a total train-wreck by any stretch and it does have its genuine moments of hilarity but doesn't quite deliver as well and as often as it should. If you can make it through the first half of the film, where the filmmakers struggle to find the right mix of humour and drama, you'll be rewarded for a much more satisfying second half that pays off your patience for sticking it out.

This edition is loaded with extras all of which are included on the second disc while the first disc includes both the rated and unrated versions of the film.

There are four deleted/alternate scenes. Sportscaster Dick Pepperfield provides the backstory to Jackie Moon and his team. We see Monix's prologue and how he deals with an obnoxious heckler. In an amusing montage, we find out what happens to all the major characters, which really should have been kept in.

Also included are three improv scenes. We get more the play-by-play banter from Lou and Dick with Will Arnett adlibbing all sorts of raunchy observations. There is also more of Jackie and Dick on the Tropics Weekly TV show which allows Farrell to cut loose with more clueless observations.

"A Short History of the ABA" takes a look at the actual ABA with former players reminiscing about it and clips of vintage footage. There are some interesting factoids that revealed, like how it started the three-point shot and introduced a more colourful, dynamic style of play that was eventually absorbed into the NBA.

"Re-creating the ABA" examines how the filmmakers authentically re-created the look and feel of the era. The cast went through an intensive, four-week training camp in order to be able to play like they did in the `70s.

I love Will Ferrell and Will Ferrell movies, but I did not feel the need to endure this. What's worse is that my 11 year old son also loves Will Ferrell. The trailer looked great, so we decided to dive in. From the get-go, this proved to be vulgar, derogatory and worst of all; unfunny... Much to our dismay. I was pissed and my kid was confused.

It's amazing how you look at movies differently when you watch with your kid. If I had looked at it alone, I would have just dismissed it as a crappy movie Will Ferrell made before he started working with Adam McKay and Judd Apatow. But we were pumped after the trailer and woefully disappointed.

A must watch for basketball and Ferrell fans alike. This is such a quotable movie. I first watched it with my basketball team at an out-of-town tournament in high school and watching it (and quoting it) again and again never gets old. It's a straight-forward Will Ferrell sports movie plot, don't expect anything more than your standard comedy setups, but the moments and the characters are so funny you won't be able to help but enjoy yourself. Woody Harrelson shows once again why any movie he is in is worth watching as he takes on the role of a washed up NBA player that's been traded to his hometown ABA team....for a washing machine.

Enough said.

Semi-Pro is easily one of the funniest classic Will Ferrell movies to me. As an avid fan of Basketball, having Will Ferrell's unique sense of humor and personality brought to a stereotypical sports drama/comedy made it far more enjoyable. If you aren't expecting a ton out of it, you'll probably have a lot of fun with this movie and enjoy it a lot.
