The other day, I had the misfortune to watch this movie. I’m talkin’ about “Semi-Pro”, a movie starring Will Ferrell and Woodie Harrelson. What was thinking of when I picked this flick? I mean it’s just a piece of crap!
The story takes place in the 70’s, and deals with basketball. An ABA team, the Flint Tropics, learns the ABA and the NBA have come to terms to merge at the end of the season, and that only 3 teams of the ABA will be allowed to play in the NBA. Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-manager-player (!) of this organization wants his team to snatch this opportunity. But there’s a huge concern about it: his team sucks. Tropics’ players are just a bunch of looser, who aren’t skilled enough to get the upper hand. The worst part of it being they ain’t afraid to be ludicrous on the court, especially the owner!
Like I said, it’s a pretty bad movie, one that won’t be reminded for ages, to say the least. This is supposed to be a funny movie, but I guess my lack of humor prevented me from enjoying this movie!
Anyway, if you ever get a chance to see that movie, just run away!
