Goofs

During a normal soccer game, players are not allowed to kick the ball up to and behind their necks and "carry" the ball in that manner. Also when the player lifted his team mate to head the ball into the goal is not allowed. Either of these infractions fall into dangerous play or unsportsmanlike behavior resulting in a yellow card (warning) or red card (ejection from game) See more »

A pretty forgettable but funny Will Farrell film
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kicking and Screaming is just one of those movies that you might watch one time fully through and if it's on TV, you might watch a little bit of it if nothing's on. It's a very forgettable film that had Will Farrell in it to give some good laughs. I thought Will Farell was hilarious though and pretty much stole the show just like any other comedies he does. Lines like, "No, you go to hell, and while you're there, why don't you grab me a juicebox," made me laugh a lot. I thought Mike Ditka and Robert Duvall were pretty funny also and had a couple funny lines. Overall, this is a film that I might watch maybe once or twice and then totally forget about it. It's enjoyable because Will Farrell steals the show.

Hedeen's Outlook: 7/10 **+ C+
