Semi-Pro Was Semtextic! Originally uploaded by AccessWinnipeg
Semtex is a plastic explosive. I was trying to take this in the direction of saying the movie was great.. almost explosive-like. It was a play off of the “Sem” in the title. Terrible pun.. or terribly punny? Enough of that. This isn’t an official review so don’t expect the standard review format. Instead, I want you to expect the unexpected. Max Sliding.
The comedy is as subsisting in Semi-Pro as it is in all of Will’s flicks. I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t like Will Ferrel’s movies. The comedy is actually stepped up a notch with the use of profanity. Tastefully done and not as offensive as some might assume. As for it’s actual story, I guess it’s fair. Underdog basketball team trying anything and everything to realize their dreams, against all odds, with hope and tenacity to see them through.
