A few funny moments, surrounded by junk
Semi-Pro had some funny moments, but a good portion of the movie was basketball, and it wasn't funny, or even entertaining really. Ferrell has some hillarious moments, but most are preceded and followed by genuine junk. It's watchable, but not nearly as ridiculous as previous Ferrell incarnations. It tries to be like his best work yet, Anchorman, but it fails many times. It could be worse, but it could be a lot better.
