Picture from Semi-Pro
Overall D+

Jackie Moon (Will Ferrell) likes to think of himself as a professional basketball player, so he buys his own team and bills himself as their star. The movie is similarly pretentious, appearing like an underdog sports movie, but really just a vehicle to spoof the 70s and slam-dunk some crude humor.

Violence C
Sexual Content D
Profanity D

Amazingly, there is a thread of truth in this movie. The ABA was a real league that existed from 1967 to 1976, and their teams were known for flashier plays and glitzier performances. While the Flint team in this movie is fictitious, you can find more details about the league in this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Basketball_Association
