Critics... wow, what some don't understand

I saw this and bought it right after I rented it. The most negative comment I saw occasionally would use the term "far fetched"! Not according to the professional MMA guys who trained him! Mr James is a pretty stout lad and actually took some real HARD blows during filming! They said he took them well too! The main scenes were with MMA current fighters; not stunt guys! Point? They were not so good at missing a punch as stunt men! Especially since they were training themselves for upcoming fights! Kevin James hand speed and movement was real! I was pleasantly shocked! I suggest you critics who think his character was "far fetched" get in the ring with Mr James and see how you look after 1/2 round if he allows you to last that long! I enjoyed his character's motivation. The humor was not abundant but it was present. The music was very good. Don't leave the room when he enters the ring for the last match! I loved that! I think pretty much any age above a young child can enjoy this movie.

We took my son for his 11th birthday. Lots of belly laughs! The bonus was that Dad is a UFC fan! There were some lulls in the acting but overall an enjoyable movie.

I definitely was surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. Had good message and not the harsh language. Little violent with the fighting but not extreme.

This was a super cute fun clean family movie! Of course there is some violence b/c he is fighting in the MMA, but if your kids are a little older, it is wonderful!

What a pleasant surprise! A comedy with a great message! We took 6 kids, aged 7-16 and they all loved it! We love Kevin James and were pleased to see a clean movie with hilarious moments, but a very inspirational message to make it all the better! Go!
