An uneven but largely likable basketball-themed comedy.
The outcome is deeply unsatisfying.
This is a bad time for NBA fans in Boston. Just as their beloved Celtics are about to wrap up a dismal season, with nearly 50 losses and no berth in the playoffs, Hollywood comes out with a comedy about the Celtics that's even worse than the team.
Not only is the picture woefully short on laughs, it's also coarse, overbearing and, in places, downright insulting.
You don't even have to be a Celtics fan to appreciate it. In fact, considering who becomes the butt of the film's ultimate joke, perhaps it's best if you're not one.
Celtic Pride has ingredients that could have made for a tough knockabout farce. Unfortunately, the film, directed by Tom De Cerchio from a screenplay by Judd Apatow, doesn't know the meaning of the term 'light touch.'
Celtic Pride supplies predictably lowbrow yocks for jocks, and its rather disturbing racial implications go entirely unacknowledged.
A desperately unfunny comedy, and what's worse is that the premise really COULD have been something solid!
Dismal attempt at basketball comedy
Kind of funny, especially for Celtic fans.
This is one film that won't appeal to either sports or comedy fans.
Celtic Pride isn't the worst sports comedy ever made, but it certainly could have been better.
With it's flaws and sometimes lack of humor, Celtic Pride have a interesting plot and become a satire of the schizophrenic society, with a great obsess for sports, television and macho culture. A portrait of different social classes and madness that share angry and fanaticism for things without meaning.
2 stars for the Larry Bird cameo.
Good fun loopy comedy with Aykroyd and Stern as a couple of obsessed Boston sports fans that kidnap Utah's top basketball player just in time for the NBA finals.
Great simple plot that works really well but the duo of Aykroyd and Stern really makes the film hit top stride. Stern being a crazed on the edge father and Aykroyd as his timid submissive best friend make a great combo, Wayans is also actually very good as an arrogant selfish top player really nailing the role, all together its really quite amusing as the trio get into all kinds of trouble as the big game approaches. I liked how the boys had to pretend to support the Utah Jazz in order to get close to Wayans character so they could nab him haha some good facial/physical comedy on display there. Not a well known flick but well worth it if you find it.
This had some laughs, but not enough.
