Three men, three dreams. It's 1976 in Flint, Michigan. 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? Written by
In the film, Jackie Moon says that he had never vomited before, not even as a baby. In reality, Will Ferrell suffered from pyloric stenosis, a condition that causes frequent vomiting, as a baby. A scar on his upper right abdomen, from the surgery he had to treat this condition, appears in this and many other films. See more »
Henry Ford had nothing to do with Flint, Michigan. Flint is the birthplace of General Motors, founded as the Buick Motor Company in 1903, by William C. Durant and Joshia D. Dort, co-owners of the Flint-based Durant-Dort Carriage Company. Durant brought engine builder David Buick to Flint from Detroit. Buick was a huge success, and Durant used it as the basis for his "General Motors" corporation in 1910. Henry Ford's auto company was founded in Detroit around 1910; its headquarters are in Dearborn, Michigan. There has never been a Ford facility within 50 miles of Flint, Michigan. See more »

Will Ferrell really misses the head of the nail with this film
This has got to be one of Will Ferrell's worst films. It was just awful. Blades of Glory was much better and I didn't think that was a great comedy. Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a has been singer whom now owns a basketball team. Not only is he the owner, he is also a player and the coach. Of course, he really doesn't know much about coaching except showing his players how to dance in animal costumes. The commissioner tells them that 4 teams from the league will be added to the NBA, and Moon's Tropics aren't one of them. But Moon insists that they should play the season out and the top 4 teams get to go to the NBA. So, now there is the stereotypical "bad news bears" team that all of a sudden starts winning and only needs one more win to reach the goal.
Some jokes used are a bear fight, a hippie who wins a 10000 dollar shot but never gets paid, the alley-oop, etc.... Just not that funny.
FINAL VERDICT: Don't assume this will be half descent since Ferrell stars in it. It is really a dud.
