Will Ferrell's trademark off-the-wall lunacy scores big with the whole family in Kicking and Screaming! Phil Weston (Ferrell) is a mild-mannered suburban dad who is suddenly transformed into a caffeine-fueled sports maniac when he becomes the coach of his son's unruly soccer team. When the championship pits Phil's underdog team against the squad coached by his own domineering dad (Robert Duvall), it's game on for the most uproarious mismatch of the season!
