Charlotte Observer - Lawrence Toppman
Ferrell's ideally suited to man-boy characters, and that's what Phil Weston is in "Kicking."
Christian Science Monitor - David Sterritt
Some scenes are just silly, others are dead-on uproarious. Ditka, a real-life football legend, is a real find as our hero's assistant.
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Laughs-wise, it lacks the raucous edge of an "Old School" or "Anchorman" or the retro charm of an "Elf," but there's still plenty of Will-power to fuel this likable underdog trifle. It certainly is more enjoyable than a lot of what passes for family entertainment these days.
Variety - Scott Foundas
An immensely likable, funny comedy that finds a novel approach to that familiar combo of kids and sports.
Dallas Observer - Luke Y. Thompson
This might be the most predictable movie of the year, but at least it delivers everything you expect it to.

Kicking & Screaming (2005)

Phil Weston has been unathletic his entire life. In college he failed at every sport that he tried out for. It looks like his 10-year old son, Sam, is following in his footsteps. But with becoming the coach of The Soccers, an already successful soccer team, everything changes.
