Personally, I am afraid that one day the comedic style of Will Ferrell will no longer have an effect on the masses. Thankfully, that has not happened yet. And until then, at least, Ferrell and Co. continue to deliver the laughs. This time around they will take on the world of 1970s semi-professional basketball. Ferrell stars as Jackie Moon, the owner/coach/star of the Flint Tropics. Yes, that is Flint, Michigan — nothing “tropical” about it. Moon is flanked by his loyal teammates Clarence (Andre Benjamin) and Monix (Woody Harrelson). The film also stars David Koechner, Will Arnett, Maura Tierney and Jackie Earle Haley.
