Comedy - This is a formula kid-centered sports comedy for the whole family.
Clean and devoid of surprises, the film has star Will Ferrell's
trademark silly physical and verbal comedy, but this one is almost
strictly for the younger set.
PROFANITY: One miscellaneous profanity. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Hits and general roughhousing, all for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Tobacco and excessive coffee drinking. ACTION: Soccer action. COMEDY: Silly verbal and physical comedy; kid humor.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 206 moviegoer opinions. Most importantly, kids and teens LOVED "Kicking and Screaming" and I highly recommend it for them. Everyone else rated it as good to very good, but not great, which is probably no surprise. I doubt anyone was expecting greatness from a Will Ferrell movie. So, "Kicking and Screaming" will make a GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!
