Outlandish, only sporadically funny sports comedy, set in 1976, about a one-hit singer (Will Ferrell) who becomes the owner and playing coach of a Midwest ABA basketball team and who must work with a new player (Woody Harrelson) and the team's established star (Andre Benjamin) to ensure his franchise's survival after their league's merger with the NBA. Executive producer and director Kent Alterman's feature debut has a few scenes of well-choreographed chaos and some sly period references, but mostly the film lumbers along with the cast strictly on autopilot. Brief sexual activity with partial nudity, pervasive rough and crude language, some uttered by a priest, some profanity and much sexual and scatological humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
