I finally saw Semi-Pro, the latest sports related Will Ferrell flick, and it was laugh-out-loud funny. Based on the previews, I thought I would like it less than Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and more than Blades of Glory, and you know it? I was right.
If you like this kind of humor – and I do – you will love Semi-Pro. If you can’t stand this kind of idiocy… lighten up. 🙂
RATING 8 out of 10
Talk about polar opposites. Just before lightening the mood with Semi-Pro, I watched An Unreasonable Man. This documentary chronicles the career of Ralph Nader and the dramatic, if polarizing, effect he has has on the history of the United States.
All of the presidential hijinx has made most of us completely forget (if we ever knew) about his early career and the immense contribution he made to consumer protection.
Whether you blame him for costing Gore or Kerry elections or blame them for costing Nader the elections, you cannot argue with the positive impact he has had on defending your rights as consumers to purchase safe products. This movie reminds us of that as well as examines all the controversy surrounding presidential politics.
