Overview: In 1976, Jackie Moon (Will Ferrell) is a washed-up one-hit wonder who uses his brief moment of fame and fortune to buy a professional basketball team. He purchases the Flint Michigan Tropics, elevates himself to their top player and quickly transforms the team into the worst franchise in the fledgling ABA league. The Tropics are on the verge of being disbanded when the ABA folds into the NBA, so Jackie must rally his fellow players to actually win a game before they're forced to call it quits.
Review: Guess what's not funny anymore? The '70s. That '70s Show is off the air. Anchorman is already a few years old. Boogie Nights is even older. The first Brady Bunch Movie was released 13 years ago. You can't get away with being so lazy that you think that bell-bottom polyester pants alone are going to bring the laughs. Example: There's actually a scene in this of two guys just playing Pong. Nothing more than that. They're just playing it. No commentary. Isn't that a riot? If you said "yes," then you deserve to throw your money away on a ticket!
