Here Comes the Boom
High school biology teacher Scott Voss is desperate to save the music program at his cash-strapped school. Learning that fighting in MMA matches provides a pretty nice payout, Voss decides to put his former collegiate wrestling skills to the test and climb into the octagon. Unfortunately, Voss has been out of college for about 20 years. Does he have what it takes to beat the best and earn the cash the school desperately needs?

I just finished watching Here comes the Boom this weekend. It was so funny and the story line was so inspirational. A small High school finds itself going into dept and the beloved music program was unable to be paid for. Lenny (one of the teachers) was devastated when he found this news. He made it his job to make sure that he gets the money to keep the music program going. With no experience he decides to become a wrestler leading up to the big fight that can save the music. I feel like this movie can be taken in so many different ways and genres. Either an inspirational movie or even a comedy and it even has some action in there. Watching this movie over made me realize something very important. But u have to watch it to find out. Kevin James is such a good actor and he made this movie so much better. Just by the way he played his role as Lenny really brought the comedy to the movie. As an actor I feel he has a very good way of getting any type of message to the audience and whoever is watching. I really hope you guys like this movie.

One of the better Kevin James movies. Lots of laughs, good themes, first class supporting actors. And, he's fitter and trimmer than in some of his previous films.

I liked this film. It was better then I expected. Had some pretty good fight scenes mixed with humor. Kevin James is fun.

Fun movie. I appreciate that it was funny and entertaining without being crude and full of swearing and/or sex! Movies like this are rare (sadly)!

What can I say--I enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. Though the ending is predictable, it delivered that feel-good ending I am a sucker for.

I enjoyed it. You pretty much know where it's going from beginning to end, but still it's nice to watch a movie with a unbelievable premise now and then. (Love Selma.)
