      Kicking and Screaming with Will Ferrell, Robert Duvall, and Mike Ditka. I would never watch a movie about kids playing soccer. I do not like kids and I do not like soccer.

      So why did I give it a shot? Two reasons - Will Ferrell and Mike Ditka. It turned out that even these two powerful forces could not save this dog.

      Ferrell is a little league soccer coach and psychologically scarred from his competitive father Duvall. At a coach’s dinner, Duvall starts to harass Ditka and almost gets punched out.

      Ferrell is the type of coach that teaches winning is not that important. Duvall is the Vince Lombardi type personality in which winning is everything.

      So, I suppose that you can guess how this movie turns out, but that ...

      • is not the important aspect. What matters are the funny shenanigans acted out by Ferrell.

        He goes in to hug Ditka after an inspirational speech and gets pushed away with a hand in the face. He learns to drink coffee and becomes addicted.

        He plays tetherball against his father and gets so worn out that he rips off his shirt and gulps down Gatorade. As he

        sews a team mascot tiger onto his jacket, we are treated to the Rocky tune “Eye of the Tiger.

        ” Will heckles an opposing kid and gets his butt handed to him by a ten year old. There are some effective flashbacks used to show why Ferrell is the way he is, but all in all this movie is way to corny for me.

        At the end, Ditka goes home and you should too.
