Semi-Pro sees Will Ferrell starring as Jackie Moon who owns, coaches and plays for the Flint Michigan Tropics in a lower level basketball league but when the league decides to join forces with the NBA and take 4 of its teams being able to make the step up whilst the others will be dropped from the league. Can Jackie bring in the fans and rally his team to jump from the bottom of their league to the heights of the NBA?
The film is OK and has a few laughs but it is not one of the best offerings from Ferrell so don't go in expecting an amazing comedy as this will disappoint if you go in with high expectations. The film is watchable and will deliver a little bit of laughter but it is not a laugh out loud type of movie.
