Kicking & Screaming
Source: Catholic News Service
Mostly funny, if formulaic, comedy about a timid suburban soccer dad (Will Ferrell), who seeks to redeem his unathletic childhood by coaching his 10-year-old son's last-place team and finds himself in the championship game going head-to-head with his own supercompetitive father (Robert Duvall), who coaches the league's best squad. Directed by Jesse Dylan and dominated by Ferrell's manic presence, this farce inspired by "Bad News Bears" imparts a humorous critique of our hypercompetitive culture, but deserves a penalty flag for a crass running gag which makes it questionable fare for very young viewers. Some comic violence, a minor same-sex parent theme, as well as mildly crude language and humor, including some ethnically insensitive remarks. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
