KICKING & SCREAMING (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Kicking & Screaming
quickly earns its place as a good child/adult share. A surprise casting choice of Will Farrell offset with Robert Duvall absolutely works in this quite good comedy. The film is one of Will Farrell’s better works. Seeing Mike Ditka adds spice to the story. Look for a young Josh Hutcherson in the movie.

Phil Weston (Will Farrell) believes he is his own man, not at all like his father, until he gets his own soccer team to coach.
