Semi-pro will not go down in the anals of great comedies.
If you are looking for a plot synopsis, well this movie is not for you. It's pretty short on story and pretty high on funny bits.
The one thing I will say is that the film is not overpowered by Will Ferrell silliness. Oh don't mistake me there is some silliness but it is only part of a greater picture.
It has 4-5 hilarious scenes and many lines that will be quotable for a long time. I left the theatre laughing and repeating line with my friends. And really what more are you asking for in a Will Ferrell Comedy???
