Rotten: It's long on shorts but short on punchlines.

Fresh: No amount or combination of shame, absurdity and unflattering outfits seem to dint Ferrell's fierce commitment to character.

Going by some reviews on here and other places i was thinking this was going to be a pile of turd poo.But i was taken back and was surprise that it was actually good.Its not perfect and there are plenty of bum jokes but when there are some good ones they are brilliant.Worth a check if you like will ferrell.

Semi Pro is an unoriginal, unfunny film that uses recycled humour from Will Ferrell's previous films to create it's brand of comedy. A film that signals yet another death rattle ring for Will Ferrell's tumbling career, Semi Pro is a film thats desperately trying to be funny. What happened to Ferrell? Zoolander, Old School and Taladega Night were good enough comedies. But this? This is crap, pure crap. Only the diehard Ferrell fan with intelligence of a 2 year old will love this. Semi Pro, is simply put a recycled film with jokes that we've heard before with the same characters under different names. This film is not different than Blades Of Glory or Anchorman. Will Ferrell's golden years are behind him, and Semi Pro along with Blades Of Glory, Step Brother and Land of The Lost is the beginning of the end for Will Ferrell. Only his most diehard followers won't admit his pathetic decline into mediocrity.
