Must Watch: Semi-Pro Red Band Trailer
by Alex Billington

Besides Walk Hard, this is the funniest thing I've seen all weekend. Honestly, Will Ferrell's Semi-Pro is looking better and better with each new trailer - like they're taking it back to his Anchorman days. And here's the first great sign - it's going to definitely be rated R. In Judd Apatow's Hollywood, you can't have a hard-hitting money-making comedy without R-rated humor, and they've certainly got it in Semi-Pro. So if you're looking for some delightful holiday cheer or just want to cuddle up under a warm blanket to some great comedy, then this red band trailer for Semi-Pro is it. But you've been warned, it is VERY R-rated and VERY funny!
Thanks to IGN for posting this trailer. I'm glad I stumbled across this on this wonderful holiday weekend - it made my day and put a huge grin on my face.
Watch the red band trailer for Semi-Pro:
Semi-Pro is directed by Kent Alterman, who is directing his first feature film, and written by Scot Armstrong, who also wrote Old School, School for Scoundrels, and The Heartbreak Kid. The movie arrives in theaters on February 29th, 2008. The newest poster for Semi-Pro is featured below.
Awesome! It'll be another Ferrell classic. I can't get tired of the guy.

I am glad they released this. Consider my hope restored.

Yes, please... more edgy, less kiddy. This is the type of stuff Eddie Murphy should be doing. It's a shame that successful comics are usually forced into doing movies aimed at 10 year-olds.

I was a little skeptical after seeing the first trailer, but this one is pretty funny. Consider my ticket bought.

I confess, this doesn't look as bad as the first trailer, but doesn't anyone want to see Will Ferrell stretch from his sports movie phase? Talladega Nights (which I think was just okay) is the closest he's had to a success in this genre. Kicking and Screaming and Blades of Glory were both dreadful. He's recycling the old formula to death.

I loved the Apatow stuff and I love Ferrell, usually, but I don't really see anything in this trailer that would make me rush out to see the film. 🙁

WTF??? Ferrel is NOT funny....this sh*t wouldnt make it as humor in a Jr. High school locker room...totally pathetic.....

Glad to see Farrell comin wit some good stuff after the flop that was Anchorman. I'll check this out. Reminds me of old school Eddie Murphy.
