Trailer Park | Semi Pro

25 12 2007

Will Ferrell is America’s favorite sports comedian. Previously, Ferrell has spoofed NASCAR (“Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby”), ice iskating (“Blades of Glory”) and soccer (“Kicking and Screaming”). Ferrell’s next sports spoof – basketball.

In his latest film, “Semi Pro,” Ferrell is a 1970s basketball player Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association’s Flint Michigan Tropics who rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true. Co-starring Woody Harrelson and Andre Benjamin, the trailer looks funny.

I laughed long and loud at “Talladega Nights, but his other sports comedies left me luke warm. But I tend to give Ferrell the benefit of a doubt, so I’ll give his latest the benefit of a doubt.

“Semi Pro” opens in theaters on February 29

Trailer grade: B-
