Awesome, 26 October 2006
Author: Jack De La Mare from United Kingdom

I chose to watch this film on the TV because there was nothing on. I looked at the information and saw that the famous actor and one of my favourite actors, Will Ferrell was in this film.

I watched it and really got into it. Will Ferrell's humour was good for anyone who liked Anchorman and/or Elf.

He plays a good coach, but not a normal coach. He tries different plays with his team, even though they are not the best.

Will Ferrell gets back at his dad for being such a stuck-up person and then realises quite near the end of the film that he is acting like his dad was to him.

Will Ferrell is quick to act and explains that he was an idiot to the team and finally puts his son in. He has a new game plan, not just all about the Italians kids.

Overall this film is quite funny and good for the whole family. Very good acting from everyone.

Worth watching.
