Kicking & Screaming

Rated PG 96 minutes 2005

Will Ferrell plays a nebbishy vitamin salesman named Phil who has forever lived in the shadow of his ultracompetitive father Buck (Robert Duvall). Buck is so driven that when he ends up coaching a kids' soccer team, he benches his own grandson Sam (Dylan McLaughlin) before trading him away to the worst team in the league, a group of misfits ironically named the Tigers. When the Tiger coach mysteriously disappears, Phil finds himself stepping in -- way over his head. That is, until he enlists the help of Buck's angry neighbor . . . Mike Ditka (impressive in a substantial self-deprecating role). Ditka introduces Phil to coffee, and things spiral out of control from there. Fans of Ferrell's repressed-crybaby act have the first half to enjoy, while those who prefer nutcase, running-around-naked Will get that once Phil is fully caffeinated. This might be the most predictable movie of the year, but at least it delivers everything you expect it to.
