I'll cop to pretty much being a member of the Cult of Ferrell. I enjoy him enough that I'm willing to watch his movies even when they look terrible, like Blades of Glory or this one.
Turns out though, unlike Blades of Glory, this one was actually okay. Far from his best, definitely inconsistant and too reliant on elements he's already used before to greater effect (70's fashions, sports theme, playing a loudmouth yet lovable idiot), but still passably good.
Also, I can't remember the last time I saw a sports comedy that contained such a small, inconsequential amount of game-time scenes.
