Rated R · 90 minutes · 2008

Set during the last days of the ABA (American Basketball Association), Semi-Pro is about one-hit pop-star and Flint Tropics owner/manager/power forward Jackie Moon’s attempt to get his last-place team to the lofty position of fourth place by season’s end in order to survive the pending ABA/NBA merger. Unfortunately, this broad sports comedy, Will Ferrell’s third in a row, lacks any sort of originality beyond the premise. Scenes feel lamely improvised to the point that progressing the story, even vaguely, is wholly irrelevant. Audiences are trusted to laugh simply because Ferrell and his cohorts are inherently funny, but Semi-Pro feels a lot more like a loosely-connected series of SNL skits than a cohesive movie worth sitting through (90 min.).
