3.0 out of 5 stars Semi-Funny with a decent story May 4, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not his Best March 16, 2008
Verified Purchase
This is a decent comedy. I don't think it deserves to be called terrible. But it is very uneven. Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon a 70's one hit singing wonder who uses the money to buy an ABA team. When the ABA decides to merge with the NBA 4 teams will go to the NBA with the rest being disbanded including his Flint Tropics. Jackie then comes up with a plan to be part of the merge and tries to inspire his team to 4th place. Ferrell plays his usual character which is getting a little old at this point. The movie is full of great comedy actors and a few decent jokes. Not everything works in this movie, but it is not as bad as some make it out to be. It won't last long in the theaters so I would just wait for the unrated dvd release in a few months.

2.0 out of 5 stars Consistent Like A Shaq Free Throw August 3, 2009
By Mike
Format:DVD
Synopsis: It's 1976 in Flint, Michigan. Jackie Moon (Will Ferrell) owns, operates, and plays for the Flint Tropics, which is the laughing stock of the American Basketball Association. Upon hearing the news that there will be a merger between the ABA and the NBA, Moon rejoices... until he hears that only the best teams will make the merger while the others will fold. Distressed, Jackie starts to inspire his group to be better, which includes bringing in veteran player Ed Monix (Woody Harrelson) to help fortify the playing style of the emerging Coffee Black (Andre Benjamin). Will the team succeed long enough to make it to the NBA?

Now, you can't all expect them to be hits with Will Ferrell and this is definitely an example of that. The jokes were tired after a while and while an uplifting story, it just seemed quite dull in comparison to the other comedies that have been recently released. I'd recommend it to die-hard fans of The Frat Pack, but other movie viewers probably won't enjoy it as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will punch you in the Jejunum. November 28, 2012

This has to be one of the best comedy gems that went relatively unnoticed. Worth a watch if you are a fan of Will ferrel's more SNL type humour.

The Will Ferrell movie machine keeps cranking out film after film. Unfortunately, they haven't been getting better. On a good note, they aren't all that bad either. This film has some very funny moments, but none as good as Ferrell's earlier outings. If your a fan you know what to expect and if your not.......why are you reading this?

5.0 out of 5 stars I was in a good mood last night February 2, 2009
Format:DVD
and an even better mood tonight since the Steelers won the Superbowl.

Most Will Ferrell movies are pretty much the same as far as what to expect- usually he portrays an extremely obnoxious character that does mean or disgusting things JUST to get a reaction. And I won't lie to you- he does the same thing here.

It's just that, for some reason, I actually found some of his jokes funny on this movie, and plus there's a LOT more characters other than Will that will take the attention away from him and his usual unnecessary ways of getting a reaction out of the viewer.

Some of the basketball scenes were decent enough. I was laughing at a few of them. At least the movie tries to be a slight improvement over those other Will Ferrell films.

Only a movie you should watch if you're REALLY in the mood for Will Ferrell's style of humor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Defintely not the best Will Ferell but still hilarious September 23, 2008
Format:DVD
All you whiners giving this low ratings need to be quiet. This movie is clearly supposed to be stupid, not a smart witty comedy. It's classic Ferrell. While I do admit it isn't anywhere near as good as "Talladega Nights" or "Old School", it''s still full of good laughs. I don't see how anyone could watch this and not find it amusing. People these days are way too stuck up and expect too much when it comes to movies. I, personally, love comedies like this. They are supposed to be ridiculous and off-the-wall, and they make you feel good. If you don't like Will Ferrell, don't watch his movies. If you do like hi, then you should know what to expect.

Not so great. I love Stepbrothers and Anchorman, but this just isn't as funny. Not enough slapstick, maybe? I ended up giving it to my boyfriend. He loved it. Not me.
