The Tropics play the Anaheim Amigos and the Spirits of St. Louis in 1972. The Amigos played only during the 1967-68 season, before becoming the Los Angeles Stars. The Spirits didn't play until the 1974-75 season. See more »
In the immortal words of Charles Barkley: "That was turrible."
They completely overdid the profanity and it just wasn't funny. Profanity in moderation can actually enhance the humor of a movie, but when used indiscriminately it just becomes obnoxious. Besides the overuse of cuss words I found myself left hanging while waiting for a punchline, especially after the abnormally loooong and very unfunny poker scene. I kept waiting for the punchline and there was none. When the scene ended I was just confused. It was like the movie had to be a certain length and this was needed to fill space.
I was very disappointed with this Will Ferrell project. Don't get me wrong, there were some funny lines and some funny scenes but by and large it was a flop. I see why he so quickly followed this movie up with "Step Brothers". I certainly hoped his latest movie is better.
