Phil weston is a mild-mannered suburban dad - who's suddenly transformed into a caffeine-fuelled sports maniac when he becomes the coach.

"The perfect comedy for the entire family!  Shawn Edwards, FOX-TV
"Will Ferrell is hilarious…you’ll be laughing and cheering!  Clay Smith, Access Hollywood
"Two thumbs up!  Ebert & Roeper

Editor's Note
Funny man Will Farrell's humorous man-child antics meet actual kids on this soccer comedy. As vitamin salesman Phil Weston, Farrell's a sensitive man easily capable of both crying and sewing. Unfortunately for Phil, these qualities have never quite endeared him to his tough-as-nails father, Buck (Robert Duvall), who will stop at nothing to one-up Phil. He goes so far as benching Phil's 10-year-old son--his own grandson--on the youth soccer team he coaches. When Phil begs for more playing time for the boy, Buck trades his grandson to the last-place team, the Tigers. Not just any normal cellar-dwelling outfit, the Tigers feature a cast of lovable losers who prefer eating worms and telling jokes to playing soccer. When the Tigers' coach leaves, putting the season on the line, an inexperienced Phil steps in to helm his son's new team. With help from Buck's neighbor and rival, real-life football coach Mike Ditka--hilariously playing himself--the Tigers turn their season around. Fueled by a raging caffeine habit, Phil starts to be overly obsessed with beating Buck, losing sight of why he took the job in the first place--to be a better dad to his own son.

Director Jesse Dylan (AMERICAN WEDDING) is a natural for the storyline, being famed musician Bob Dylan's son. Farrell, for once, is content to play straight man to the crazy tykes in the first half of the film, before he unleashes his trademark zaniness. Those attributes alone, along with fun-loving family themes, make KICKING & SCREAMING a treat for fans both young and old.

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
Ferrell plays actual characters, as he did in Elf, rather than recycled "SNL" skit creatures. In Kicking & Screaming, he understands that the role requires a certain vulnerability and poignancy, and although he goes berserk with all the coffee, it is kept within character. His soccer coach has an emotional arc and is not simply a cartoon. Duvall of course is superb. No one has a meaner laugh. He even begins to smile, and you wish you were armed. He goes head to head with Ditka, and you wait for them to spit out the bones. - Roger Ebert

Variety.com 8 of 10
Funnyman Will Ferrell shoots and scores in Kicking & Screaming, an immensely likable, funny comedy that finds a novel approach to that familiar combo of kids and sports. Arriving just ahead of several similar-themed pics -- including Par's The Bad News Bears remake and Fox's Rebound -- "Kicking" wisely focuses as much on Ferrell's character of a lower-league soccer coach as on the motley moppets he must whip into shape. Result, like 2003's School of Rock, should entertain parents as much as tykes, though a crowded release schedule will keep numbers in the solid range of Ferrell's last solo starring vehicle, Anchorman, rather than the boffo biz of holiday hit Elf. - Scott Foundas
