Being A Dad

There are certain things in life that require the word "actually" when describing them. As in "actually, it's not that bad" or "actually, I didn't hate it." 

Kicking & Screaming falls into that category. A guilty pleasure, to be sure, but just enough laughs for Will Ferrell fans and just enough dumb & gross for the kids.  

I'm not going to bother with the plot because it's basically a Bad News Bears knock-off but I will say that the always good Robert Duvall co-stars and it features probably Mike Ditka's finest acting work.  

There are a couple of scenes in a coffee shop that Jackson made me rewind about a thousand times. That's quality, folks.
