Product Description

Family sports comedy, starring Will Ferrell. Phil Weston (Ferrell) has long had to put up with his own father Buck's (Robert Duvall) competitive and overbearing nature. But when Phil's son joins a Little League football team, Phil finds that his own competitive nature hasn't been buried as well as he thought, and it gets worse when he learns that Buck has decided to coach a rival team. Before long, Phil is gaining enemies all over the place as he browbeats his team with the attitude that winning is everything.

From Amazon.co.uk

Will Ferrell is at his full, frenzied power as Phil Weston, a married, uncoordinated would-be sportsman with an uncoordinated would-be sportsman son--and an unresolved relationship with his coach father, Buck (Robert Duvall), who has very little tolerance for the uncoordinated. When Buck trades his own grandson to a real loser of a little league soccer team, Phil naturally takes over underdog coaching duties and the two men butt heads. You could easily, and perhaps rightfully, dismiss all of this as a dumb, demented Meatballs or Bad News Bears rip-off, but it's pleasantly dumb and sometimes hysterically demented: Encouraged by his neighbor, ex-Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka (yes, playing himself), Phil stops his vitamin regimen and becomes wildly addicted to regular doses of caffeine, which turns him into a monster of a team leader. In addition to Ferrell, Duvall does a doozy of a comic riff on his Great Santini role, and even Ditka is unexpectedly funny. It's a formula film with just enough far-out notions to keep you chuckling. --Steve Wiecking

I rented this movie for my eight year old son, who does not at all like playing soccer himself. However he loves that movie, especially the slapstick part and really finds it funny when Ferrell drinks too much coffee. We have rented this movie so many times that now I am actually going to purchase it. My son still has not gotten tired of watching it over and over. If you look for light family entertainment, I would recommend it.

Format: DVD
Will Ferrell is always funny, and the part of Phil Weston would seem to be tailor-made for his comedic antics. Phil's basically a little boy in a man's body, a little boy who wants to finally prove himself to his father and make up for never having met the old man's expectations. Robert Duvall lends the film an importance presence and additional laughs as the highly competitive Buck Weston, sporting goods king and highly successful coach of the Youth Soccer League Gladiators team. Phil (Ferrell) has never been able to get a leg up on his father - but certainly not from lack of effort. When he got married, his father got re-married; when he had a son, his father's wife gave birth to a son (slightly larger, of course) the same day. Young Sam and his equally young uncle Bucky play for the Gladiators, Buck's team, and they are all but unbeatable. Sam, though, is the proverbial benchwarmer, so Buck decides to trade his own grandson to the league's worst team. Yes, it's another team of misfits of all shapes and sizes that just need an incredible coach to take them to unsuspected glory. That coach is nowhere to be seen, and Phil ends up taking on the job.
That's when the competitive juices start flowing. The first big move Phil makes is to take on an assistant coach, his dad's neighbor and long-time enemy Mike Ditka. Iron Mike is surprisingly good in this film and more than holds his own beside both Ferrell and Duvall. He only takes the job to try and make Buck's life more difficult, but he soon goes about whipping the little misfits into shape. The team still stinks, but their fortunes begin to change when Ditka and Phil bring in two new players, a pair of Italian kids who were apparently born with soccer balls balanced on their feet.

I settled down to watch this on a rainy Sunday afternoon and it passed the time nicely. To say this film is formulaic is an understatement but Will Ferrell and the kids are excellent. If you liked this check out 'Shaolin Soccer'. The DVD has some nice bonus material but I won't be rushing out to buy it, it does not compare well to other Ferrell films in terms of repeat watching. Being a UK resident the identity of the US NFL coach was lost on me and it was a good job it was explained for the global audience - not everyone watches the Superbowl!

Will Ferrell. Love him or hate him, this kiddy film does not do him justice. With an overbearing father he takes on coaching a soccer team. They are wet lettaces of the highest order. He drafts in a couple of ringers who can play football like Gods and they start to climb the ranks. It gets to the point where his team are facing his father's team of ruthless kick ass kids and yep he wins. But at what cost? He always benched his son who ended up on his team because his grandpa didn't want him messing up his chances. In the end we all learn the big Disney plateau that it's the taking part that matters and too much coffee makes you homicidal lol.

I love will ferrell in movies think he is really funny, in things such as the other guys and the anchorman, Looked at this on amazon and was curious as to how this would be as its a PG.... however its just like the others, no really violent humour , or swearing, or sex, or drugs... but apart from that its the same. This would be suitable for all ages really.
I will point out the obvious fact that this is not a serious film or clever. Its just an easy watch, but a great one at that.

I can't really describe how brilliant this film was. Will Ferrell is absolutly sensational in this film. I was laughing every single second. It has a lot of songs in it including we are the champions by queen. I absolutly love football, so this is a great film for me and footy fans (in fact its great for just about anyone). The funniest comedy I've ever seen.

I purchased this after having been shown a short clip from in on a large number of Coaching Courses.

The film is very funny but the scary thing is that it is far to close to a lot of the negative things that can happen in Junior Sports.

It was shown as a warning to us but I believe it is worth it for any coach to watch to see if they do the same things!
