Newsday gives 'Semi-Pro' a two-star rating
If I had been writing a review of "Semi-Pro" for Friday's newspaper, rather than a feature/column on Will Ferrell, I would have given it two stars.
Big fans of Ferrell likely will enjoy it to a point, but it does not exactly break any new ground, nor is it as cleverly written or sharply observed as "Talladega Nights."
Turns out Newsday's own Gene Seymour had basically the same impression I did, and he's a movie reviewing professional!
Here is his review for Friday's paper.
