Here Comes the Boom(2012):"This movie indicates is that you have to fight for what you want and the message support the importance of arts education and standing up for what you believe in."
This has real charm, motivation and comedy.
This movie tells us that you should never give up even if the situation is bad.
Kevin James as a high school biology teacher who decides to raise big money for his school doing the one legal thing available to him, cage fighting.
The circumstances surrounding the teacher's need to raise money aren't all that funny, either, though that's almost interesting.
This is one of those sports comedies that is pretty much predictable from beginning to end. Movies like this depend on likable leads and they don’t come any more likable than Kevin James. He’s got a very blue collar, down-to-earth personality that is perfect for lead role.
The MMA(Mixed Martial Arts) sequences are realistic enough, given that James is in no way shape or form an MMA athlete, but he acquits himself all right all things considered.
The training sequences with retired MMA star Rutten are particularly amusing, as is the way Winkler's goody-goody music teacher interacts with James' burned-out science teacher.
Of course, if you’re watching this movie for realistic MMA sequences, chances are you’re in need of some form of therapy or another.
Still, there are less pleasant ways to spend an hour and a half and less pleasant people to spend it with.
If “pleasant” is an adjective for movies that doesn’t bother you, this might be just the thing for you.
Nothing here that is objectionable.
James is pleasant and Hayek is gorgeous.
You probably won’t cry, but you will laugh, and that will do.
