Default 'Semi-Pro' - High-Def Digest Review

Kenneth's review of 'Semi-Pro' has been posted. He says it's a pretty
disappointing Will Ferrell comedy, but some viewers might like it.
This Blu-ray offers an above average transfer and DTS HD MA 7.1
surround track, but it does have some technical flaws and a poor
supplemental package. Give it a rent.

Agrees. This movie was terrible and not that funny. The comedy feels forced at time. Glad I didn't rent or buy this one .

I think if Paramount and Universal came to blu just a little bit earlier, we may have seen some of his other movies on blu next week as well.

There was some good bits in the film. It definitely works better as a "group" film.

It isn't fantastic...but the Bear Fight is awesome!

Also:

The Movie Itself:
...Lionsgate has placed both cuts on a single disc, and added a second Blu-ray disc to house all of the supplemental features.)...

The Audio:
...Iím ecstatic when a studio like Lionsgate utilizes the latest and greatest technology the format has to offer...

Meh, I'm still keeping this on pre-order.

I'm a sucker for Ferrell. People didn't like Blades of Glory and I thought that was very funny as well.

"phoned-in" is the perfect description for "Semi-Pro". It's too bad that the movie wasn't nearly as funny as the deodorant commercials featuring Ferrell's character.

And I agree that Blades of Glory is pretty hilarious in its parody of ice skating.
