Overview

Immaturity and poor sportsmanship once again find their firmly established place in children's athletics at least among the adults in this sports comedy. Phil Weston Will Ferrell is a tightly wound suburban father who had a competitive streak worn into him by his father, Buck Robert Duvall, who never seemed to feel that his son measured up. When Phil's son joins a Little League soccer team, Phil signs on as coach, only to learn that Buck -- who also has a ten-year-old son these days -- will be coaching a team in the same league. Determined to show his father he can do the job, Phil impresses upon his young charges that winning is the only important thing, and soon gains a few enemies as he humiliates not only the kids on his own team, but their opponents as well. Directed by Jesse Dylan, Kicking & Screaming also features Kate Walsh and legendary football coach Mike Ditka. The screenplay was authored by Steve Rudnick and Leo Benvenuti The Santa Clause prior to the latter's death in 2000.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
An entertaining family movie, and may serve a useful purpose if it inspires kids to overthrow their coaches and take over their own sports.
Newsweek - David Ansen
It's all kept light and funny, but underlying the broad sight gags is a movie that actually has something to say about competition, fathers and sons, machismo and caffeine.
Philadelphia Inquirer - Steven Rea
For soccer aficionados, Kicking & Screaming boasts some fairly cool play, courtesy of Alessandro Ruggiero and Francesco Liotti, two kids who play "the Italians."

    horrible movie

    I love Will Ferrell, but this movie is terrible. It is not funny on any level.The person who wrote this movie clearly never watched a game of soccer in his life.Another thing is that the kids in this movie barely speak and then they throw two italian kids in the movie who do not speak english. Not funny. Good thing I got this movie real cheap, because now it is a frisbee.
