Product Description

Will Ferrell stars in this sports comedy as the owner of a basketball team who has to turn around his team's fortunes for the club to survive. When former NBA player Jackie Moon (Ferrell) strikes it rich with his hit song 'Love Me Sexy', he uses the profits to fulfill his ambition and buy struggling American Basketball Association team the Flint Michigan Tropics. But with the rival leagues about to merge, only four teams from the ABA will be allowed to join the superior NBA division. With the Tropics currently the worst team in the league, Moon has to win his remaining games, by fair means or foul, and turn his band of no-hopers into a well-oiled, slam-dunkin' machine, if they are to survive.

3.0 out of 5 stars You may love this sexy....... 18 July 2008
Format:DVD
This film is funnier than I thought it would be, but is not quite one of Ferrells best. I really enjoyed the 70's vibe, which they captured perfectly, and loved Ferrell and the cast mugging for all they were worth. Yes the plot is formulaic, sometimes stupid, and Maura Tierney is criminally under-used,but the film has a lot of heart, laughs at itself, is feel-good, and has enough laugh out loud moments to justify a night in watching it.
The theme tune is fantastic, too........!!

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable and funny 9 April 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Some people just don't like Will Ferrell so they won't like this film, i do and thought this film was good. Its not quite as funny as Anchorman or Blades of glory but its actually a good film on its own. Set in the 70,s and about a small basketball team heading for the NBA it does have some very funny moments and is a good way to waste an hour and a half on a rainy night. The bluray picture is very nice and crisp with excellent colours. The 2 disc edition is full of the usual stuff and makes it good value. Good film especially at a cheap price point on bluray.

By Mr. G. Bridgeman-clarke TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Now in my opinion Will Farrell is over exposed in movies. I can't recall one week at the cinema where Will Farrell has not starred in a film. Ok its great for him money-wise but its overkill. I therefore reluctantly sat down to watch this film and was so pleased i did. The action is fast and unlike most American films about their sports of baseball, Amercan football and basketball, you really do not need to have a knowledge of basketball to follow this story.

Its the usual formula, small town with rubbish team and owner who has no idea how to run affairs, then lo and behold their sign a player who in years previous was a star player and he has fallen on hard times. can they get to the play-offs and get promoted to the Major Leagues. yes its a well written formula and we have all seen it, but in this case the film rocks. Its hilarious watching the scams the owner (Will Farrell) has to get people through the turnstiles and, of course their team's star player is, you guessed it Will Farrell. Not because he is any good but rather he owns the team so he has to have the ball.

The film changes when the team know they could go out of business and the new star player Woody Harrelson, turns over a new leaf and starts coaching the team.

Its light- hearted and very funny in places and so 70's. Like watching the TV series of Starsky and Hutch at times.

I liked it and it is a real gem. If you are, like me fed up with then over-exposure of Will Farrell, please do not let that stop you watching this hilarious film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than people say... 14 Jan 2013
By SusO
Format:DVD
This film, which I came across on late night TV is better than people would have you believe, I enjoyed it's mocking of the 1970's and it's much better than Blades of Glory. WARNING: the song "love me sexy" will stick in your brain forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Typical Ferrell, great fun, great soundtrack 20 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A story of a man and his basketball team fighting relegation. A typical Ferrell film, layered, everytime I watch it, I find something funny. If you like Anchorman, you should own this. In particular, watch out for the promotional showmanship.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take off your shoes and suck me sexy 6 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
Will Ferrell - brilliant.

Having seen a few of his other films at the time of buying this, I couldn't wait to watch it. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed as the laughs just keep coming. If you are a fan of Will Ferrell's movies and have not yet seen this one, then I urge you to do so.

It ranks up there with my personal favourite, Talladega Nights.

I'd write a bit about what happens in the film, but I wouldn't want to spoil it.
