In 1970s Michigan, the age of big hair and short shorts, one man goes all the way in his search for glory and redemption! Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson take on the world of professional basketball in this hilarious tale of the mythical Flint, Michigan Tropics owner, coach and star player Jackie Moon and his quest to take his losing and talent-free team all the way to league champions!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Semi-Pro is an intermittently funny, half-hearted attempt at sports satire, and one of Will Ferrell's weaker cinematic efforts.

Common Sense Says
No huge laughs in Ferrell's foul-mouthed comedy.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that lots of kids are huge fans of Will Ferrell comedies, particularly the goofy sports ones. This one has more strong language than some of Ferrell's other movies (nearly every scene includes some creative use of "f--k" and its many derivatives), as well as the requisite sex jokes (including one sex scene between a mostly dressed couple) and outrageous behavior (fighting a bear to promote a basketball game). There's also an aggressive off-screen promotion in which Ferrell's character pitches Old Spice and Bud Light in commercials.
