Semi-Pro (2008)

Featuring a few quotable lines & good basketball set design, but weakly-written comedy and a weaker performance by Ferrell’s standards, Semi-Pro falls flat. 3/10.

*Possible Spoilers Ahead*

Pros: Will Ferrell- funniest actor in the world imo and carries the film with some funny and quotable lines, basketball and 70’s angle create a rich environment and set design/setting, basketball scenes surprisingly good in this sports satire, Andre 3000 an awesome addition,

Cons: Cringy opening song in “Love Me Sexy”, Ferrell less funny than usual and seems like he underplayed by his usual standards, predictable and poor writing overall with a shocking number of jokes completely missing – can’t believe they misused Ferrell to this magnitude,

Overall Rating: 3/10
