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.

I'm a big Will Ferrell fan so when I heard he was doing this new movie I had already signed myself up to go see it. I have to say that Will has set the bar pretty high for himself and I was a little disappointed in this flick. There are a few really funny bits (the song is hilarious) but overall, I was hoping for more. Maybe this one will grow on me the way Talladega Nights did. Sometimes you just need some extra time to think about a movie before you really, really love it. I'm hoping I warm up to Semi-Pro more, because the first impression wasn't all net.
