Semi-Pro

Rated NR

Semi-Pro is a film that’s slightly better than mediocre—at best. That said, I’ll take a mediocre Will Ferrell movie over most Hollywood attempts at comedy any day. Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, owner of an American Basketball Association team in the ’70s, right before a merger with the NBA. When it’s decided that the four best teams in the ABA will be the ones to merge, Jackie trades for talent and adds promotions to boost attendance. Ferrell is in fine form, but some of the subplots—including a dud involving the surprisingly bland Woody Harrelson—deter from the fun. Still, there are some Ferrell comedic gems, including a bear-wrestling sequence and a Russian-roulette moment featuring a cameo by Tim Meadows. It’s not the best Ferrell movie, but not nearly the worst.
