Stick a fork in him, because Will Ferrell is done.

Will Ferrell's character Ron Burgandy was a San Diego anchorman. Then he was a Nascar driver, a professional male figure skater and now he is a semi-professional basketball player. Will Ferrell is falling into the Ben Stiller trap of playing the same character over and over again in movies. This is particularly depressing because unlike Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell is actually funny.

If Will wants to beat a character to death he should bring back the hilarious Mugatu, Buddy the Elf, or Jacob Silj. Cocky and clueless gets old fast. Frankly, the only good part about Semi-Pro seems to be the appearance of Woody Harrelson.
