:D

I guarantee - that's funnier than anything in the movie.

Seen the movie already??? Wow, tell us how you did that.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that he hasn't seen the movie. Instead, he is making a prediction based upon his experience with previous Will Ferrell movies.

Yep, that's what I meant.

I saw it when it was called TALLADEGA NIGHTS, and I saw it when it was called KICKING AND SCREAMING (don't ask).

I think it was the "Overachieving American Man" series. I guess it's more of a Quadrolgy with Semi-Pro.

Yes I just made up a word.

Sorry, Shakespeare. You didn't make it up, you just misspelled it. :P

What are you talking about? His word is completely different.

His "Quadrolgy" is completely different from "Quadrilogy"?

Like so. They may mean the same thing, but they're completely different words -- like "big" and "large." I believe "synonym" would be the term to describe them.

Now, where IS that thing? Oh, here it is.

Wouldn't we all just :censored: if that were scrolled across the screen as the epilogue?

Several Points:

1. Maybe it's me, but I like some of Ferrell's work. Some of his stuff-- Kicking and Screaming, Bewitched, Old School, and his role in Wedding Crashers-- I could pretty much forget and live without. However the way he pulled off his role in Elf was a hoot, Talladega Nights was pretty funny, and to me Anchorman was rolling on the floor laughing. To me and a lot of my forty-something friends, that movie is almost a classic in the vein of Animal House, Caddyshack, and the lesser-known Hollywood Knights. Add in our typical interest in sports, and we're all looking forward to "Semi-Pro"

2. Flame is close; Ferrell and McKay actaully planned a "Mediocre American Man Trilogy". However, I am not sure that this movie is the third; apparently, the first two in the trilogy featured characters with the initials RB and the use of a colon in the title: Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. There has been some internet rumors of the third movie being titled: Booby Trap: The Tale of Rusty Butte. Don't know.

3. At any rate, the look of the unis in the trailer and on the website is seventies-sharp-- love that Pacific blue, orange and yellow combo for the Tropics. Can't wait to hear the backstory on how they came to be the "Flint Tropics"-- probably Jackie Moon bought a Florida franchise and relocated it....

4. Rams80, I would definitely recommend Loose Balls. Great history, lots of backstory, insight, and some REALLY funny stuff.

Far be from me to argue with an accurate self diagnosis.

I'll join you in your retardedness...Blades of Glory is hilarious. Will Ferrell also does a pretty nice job in Stranger than Fiction, IMO.

Bumping this up, I absolutely want to see this movie. Looks very funny, reminds me of every other Ferrell movie though.

The movie does look pretty neat, most notably because I love all of those start up leagues (ABA, AFL, and WHA) that actually made it more than one season. I wouldn't mind seeing a non-comedy movie about a league like that, much like a "The Natural" or "Bull Durham" sports movie.

... Well... um.... was I supposed to say something?...

Well, that's one heck of a "Throwback" jersey. Was that stripe really the "in" thing in the '70s? It's a good thing, based on the trailer, that this is a basketball movie because who knows what we would think if this was a golf movie.... 3-wood?

Will Ferrell is a great actor. He's also only acted in one movie, Stranger Than Fiction, and it was fantastic.

Everything else isn't acting, it's being a jackass in :censored:ty movies.
