Movie Info

Will Ferrell plays baseball in five spring training games for 10 different teams on one day in March 2015 as a fund-raiser for cancer research, and to honor former major leaguer Bert Campaneris, who played every position in a game in 1965 for the Kansas City A's.

Critic Reviews for Ferrell Takes The Field

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (4)

  • It's short on big laughs, but admirable nonetheless for [Will] Ferrell's ability to disappear into his characters.

  • The HBO special has more laugh lines per joke than the mediocre-but-beloved Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, more heart than the funny-but-formulaic Blades of Glory, and more potential staying power than the crude and forgettable Semi Pro.

  • Ferrell may never make Cooperstown, but he's a shoo-in for funniest guy in the U.S.

  • When treated as light, easy entertainment, Ferrell Takes the Field goes down just fine.

  • Would you rather me play nice here, given the auspices of what appears to be a highly laudable charity and Ferrell's efforts in support thereof? Or save you 49 minutes of precious time Saturday night, which might otherwise be devoted to (I dunno), sleep?

  • This film is a lovely mix of homage and humanizing, where the game is celebrated but also taken down a few necessary pegs, and brought back to exactly the enjoyable place it should be.
