KICKING AND SCREAMING
Welcome to that cutthroat, hyper-competitive, do-or-die sport of...little league
soccer, a world where kids and their victory-crazed suburban parents find themselves on
a high-stakes collision course—all in the name of good, clean, athletic fun.
At the epicenter of this overzealous world is Phil Weston (WILL FERRELL), a
gentle, New-Agey vitamin salesman who, by default, ends up coaching his sweet 10year-old son Sam's (DYLAN
McLAUGHLIN) last-place team, the Tigers. This would
be tough enough for the super-supportive Phil, who truly believes it's not whether you
win or lose but if your soul gets nurtured. But when he's pitted against his gung-ho,
relentlessly competitive father Buck (ROBERT DUVALL), who coaches his own young
son Bucky's (JOSH HUTCHERSON) top-ranked team, the Gladiators, a lifetime of
putting up with Buck's overbearing ways finally takes its toll on Phil and, well...the balls
hit the field.
Eventually, as Phil and Buck go head-to-head for the soccer league championship,
the pair's past and constant rivalry spins wildly out of control, forcing each to stop at
nothing to ensure a winning season. This includes a now-maniacal Phil recruiting the
world's best assistant coach, the legendary Mike Ditka (played by none other than MIKE
DITKA), as well as two young Italian soccer prodigies who become the Tigers' secret
Can father and son put their rocky past behind, do what's best for their own
children (and grandchild!) and realize that soccer is just a game? Not a chance!
May the best coach win.
