Will Ferrell is back on the big screen in his latest flick, Kicking & Screaming. Will plays Phil Weston, a guy that's been trying to live up to his ultra-competitive dad's expectations his whole life. So, when the opportunity arrives to show his dad what he's made of (by coaching his son's little league soccer team), Phil jumps at it. Find out if this movie makes it to the finals or gets shut out.

Kicking & Screaming - Little League Losers

Phil Weston's dad, Bucky Weston (played by Robert Duvall) has always been a very selfish person. When Phil tells him that he's gotten engaged, Bucky one ups him by also getting engaged to a hot, younger woman he met at the AM PM. When Phil's wife gives birth to their son Sam, Bucky's wife gives birth to their son, Bucky Jr., on the same day. As the two boys grow up together, Bucky ends up coaching their soccer team. But one day he decides that his grandson Sam just isn't cutting it and trades him to another team.

Kicking & Screaming - It's How You Play the Game

When Sam gets traded to the worst team in the league, The Tigers, Phil decides to step up to the plate and lead his son to victory. In the process Phil becomes addicted to winning... and coffee. He becomes a mad man and really jeopardizes his relationship with his family. Phil is willing to go to such great lengths to beat his dad though that this movie is jam-packed with hilarious scenarios. Like when Phil taunts kids from the other teams, makes the parents from the team run laps and watching his coaching outfits go from run-of-the-mill dad to animal print track suits!

Kicking & Screaming - DVD Features

As if Will Ferrell wasn't funny enough in this flick, they had to go and pack the DVD full of side-splitting delted scenes, bloopers and much more! Join the kids at soccer camp and learn the moves they were taught for the movie and check out some alternate storylines that the director filmed. If you're a fan of comedy, this is a must-have for your DVD collection.

Kicking & Screaming - Bottom Line

Kicking & Screaming is a funny flick from start to finish for one reason - Will Ferrell. Without him, the movie would have been a total flop, but with him as the star, you are guaranteed a laugh-out-loud night at the movies.
