Semi-Pro

Semi-Pro ★★ 2008 (R)

Faced with low fan turnout, the failing ABA of the '70s plans to dissolve the league and incorporate four of its best teams into the NBA. Owner/player Jackie Moon (a fullyfroed Ferrell) rises to the occasion, pulling out all the stops to get his lousy Flint Tropics (that's Flint, Michigan, nowhere near anything remotely tropical) on the map and into contention. He recruits aging star Ed Monix (Harrelson) and stages events like bear wrestling to get fans in the door. A funny premise that awkwardly confuses itself with an actual underdog sports drama. As with most of Ferrell's costars, Harrelson and Benjamin (as Coffee Black) take a backseat to the SNL alum's outrageous antics, making this little more than a scattering of Will Ferrell sketches. 90m/C DVD . US Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, Andre Benjamin, Maura Tierney, Will Arnett, Andy Richter, David Koechner, Rob Corddry, Matt Walsh, Jackie Earle Haley, Andrew Daly; D: Kent Alterman; W: Scot Armstrong; C: Shane Hurlbut; M: Theodore Shapiro.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
