Jackie Moon’s American Basketball Association team languishes in last place, with few fans in the seats. Jackie dreams of a merger with the NBA. A tough-minded point guard named Monix is at the end of his career; he’s played on the champion Celtics but accepts a trade to Flint to be close to Lynn, the love of his life. Clarence “Coffee” Brown dreams of stardom: he’s the Tropics’ best player, but he’s a hotdog who doesn’t value teamwork. When the trio learns that a merger is in the works that won’t include the Tropics, they pull the team together to try to achieve the impossible. Can dreams come true in Flint?
Plot: Jackie Moon is the owner, promoter, coach, and star player of the Flint Michigan Tropics of the American Basketball Association (ABA). In 1976 before the ABA collapses, the National Basketball Association (NBA) plans to merge with the best teams of the ABA at the end of the season. Only the top four teams will make the move and the worst teams will fold. The Tropics are the worst team in the league and if they want to make it to the NBA, Jackie Moon must rally his team and start winning. The only problem is the fact that Jackie Moon is not really the coach and star basketball player he thinks he is. To keep his team from oblivion and leave his mark in the city, Jackie Moon must inspire his team to win fourth place in the playoffs.

Will Ferrell is on top form / shame about the movie though
the first 30mins of this movie is as good as anchorman i mean i was laughing out loud in the cinema. after that it goes down hill though i don’t think will ferrell is to blame. while anchorman and dodgeball had a great supporting cast of characters semi pro only has will ferrell and the two commentators that raise a laugh.
many jokes didn’t work for me because of the subject matter (i don’t know much about basketball) and the sex scene falls flat on it’s face and is embarrassing to watch. the jive turkey scene i didn’t get and when will ferrell is off the screen the film starts to take it self too seriously and you’re just wanting will to come back on the screen and do something funny.
will ferrell is on top form in this movie but a lot more could have been made of his character. the premise of a washed up singer spending ridiculous amounts of money is a good idea, but is stuck in a sports movie were the loser team comes good in the end. we’ve seen so many times before and sadley done better.
i love will ferrell but i can see why he has so many haters. while i think he’ll never better anchorman semi pro and blades of glory for me show a decline and his next film needs to be a step in the right direction.
Disappointing Ferrell sports comedy
SEMI-PRO (2008) ** Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Andre Benjamin, Maura Tierney, Andrew Daly, Will Arnett, Andy Richter, David Koechner, Rob Corddry, Matt Walsh, Jackie Earle Haley, Tim Meadows, DeRay Davis, Josh Braaten, Jay Phillips, Peter Cornell, Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, Ed Helms. More miss-than-hit send-up of basketball films comedy with Ferrell getting his ya-yas out in a ridiculous ‘fro as Jackie Moon, a player/coach of the ill-fated ABA Flint Michigan Tropics who face their potentially last season after an announcement of the league ceding with, and the attempts by Moon to get his team into fourth place to gain access to NBA glory. The lackadaisical direction by Kent Alterman and an unnecessarily vulgar screenplay by Scot Armstrong only hinder a few strained laughs and a game ensemble of some of comedy’s best-unsung performers.
