Kicking and Screaming – Filtered
Phil Weston (Will Ferrell) is an average Joe who’s had to put up all his life with his overly competitive father, Buck (Robert Duvall). When Phil decides to coach his 10-year-old son’s soccer team, he goes head-to-head for the league championship against Buck, who coaches his own young son on the preeminent team of the league. Old scores come into play as Phil and Buck find themselves going to extreme measures to win the championship trophy.
Phil Weston takes over his sons soccer team as coach. He really doesn’t know much about the sport but he wants to prove to his competitive father otherwise. The championship game is coming up and Phil’s team, the Tigers, have to compete against his father’s team the Gladiators. Phil pushes his team to do all the wrong things. He finally realizes what he is doing and tells them to just have fun and do the best they can do. This is a cute funny movie and it’s great for the whole family. There were a lot of funny parts but just to list a couple: When Phil was in high school he tried a lot of sports but wasn’t the greatest at any of them. And it shows how bad he really is. Another part is when he starts to get addicted to coffee and he is constantly hyper, loud, out of control and drinking it all the time. It is just a cute movie. Recommended for the whole family.
