📺 Semi-Pro (2008) | New Line Cinema

Watched Semi-Pro (2008) from New Line Cinema
Directed by Kent Alterman. With Will Ferrell, Woody Harrelson, André Benjamin, Maura Tierney. Jackie Moon, the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association's Flint Michigan Tropics, rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true.
There was just something poetic about Jackie Earle Haley’s portrayal of “Dukes”. He’s been stupendous portraying 70’s burnouts across his career.

Were there any 70’s tropes this picture didn’t cover? This was entertaining and funny, but there are so many other cheese-ball movies from the 70’s itself, why do we need to watch ones that are doing it satirically instead of naturally?
