Semi-Pro Reviews

Never quite reaches its maximum potential in spoofing an era and attitude long gone from professional sports.

"Pro" proves to be more miss than hit, with some spotty comedic moments and a story that is really nothing more than spare parts of much better films in the same genre.

Semi-Pro is, to put it charitably, semi-good. And I'm sure it will make a load of money.

Semi-Pro has a lot of problems, not the least of which is that it is simply bone lazy in terms of plot development, story and pretty much everything else.
October 14, 2012
Semi-Pro will likely leave its star with a sore throat and bruised pride but a bulging wallet nonetheless: it's possibly the first movie ever to be less funny than the products it advertises.

Semi-Pro isn't the most well-designed of comedies, it's far too disjointed without enough thought given to making it work as a whole, but there are enough genuinely funny moments, especially from upstart Daly, to make it worth a look.

Root-canal territory all the way

Will Ferrell's Semi-Pro is a dreadful comedy. It's lazy and slipshod.
October 18, 2008
No amount or combination of shame, absurdity and unflattering outfits seem to dint Ferrell's fierce commitment to character.
October 18, 2008
In the end it's too simply all too familiar.
October 18, 2008
It isn't a good enough sports movie to please sports fans and it's not an outright funny enough movie to please Ferrell's fans.

Semi-Pro offers nothing new.

You end up with a movie that is way too simple-minded for adults on an ABA nostalgia trip, and way too dirty for kids.

A lot of it is funny, but the problem is that it doesn't amount to much.
October 1, 2008
Unfortunately, the outrageousness lessens in the second half of the film, becoming your straight forward underdog movie.
July 22, 2008
Coming from someone that didn't like Ferrell's last few comedies, I can say that this is an improvement.
July 5, 2008
we don't really need any more of these movies
