Jackie Moon (Ferrell), the owner-coach-player of the American Basketball Association's Flint Michigan Tropics, rallies his teammates to make their NBA dreams come true.

‘Semi-Pro’ Alley-Oop's Over to DVD and Blu-Ray on June 3rd

Bring home some basketball funk on DVD this June. Semi-Pro will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on June 3. While you can check out the cover art below, we have no information on pricing or special features details at this time. All we know is this will be released in a single-disc edition, two-disc edition and the Blu-Ray edition. The film stars Will Ferrell, Andre Benjamin and Woody Harrelson.

Will Ferrell stars in Semi-Pro, an outrageous comedy set in 1976 against the backdrop of the maverick ABA - a fast-paced, wild and crazy basketball league that rivaled the NBA and made a name for itself with innovations like the three-point shot and slam dunk contest. Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a one-hit wonder who used the profits from the success of his chart-topping song "Love Me Sexy" to achieve his dream of owning a basketball team. But Moon's franchise, the Flint Michigan Tropics, is the worst team in the league and in danger of folding when the ABA announces its plans to merge with the NBA. If they want to survive, Jackie and the Tropics must now do the seemingly impossible - win.
