There are not many movies out there where you can take the whole family and enjoy a film without any foul language or nudity these days. Well here ya go! "Here Comes the Boom" is about a teacher who will do everything in his power to raise money for this school. He will go into the ring MMA style just to raise the money. There will be obstacles along the way, and show you that hard work does work out in the end. Kevin James plays a great role and is a feel good movie where anyone can watch it and get emotional. Go see it.

Here comes a Great Story

It was wonderful to see Kevin James as a mature actor, in this story. His low key approach in the movie brought a cinematic reality to the story. I thought the story could have kicked Winkler around more as the aging (pick a type) character. He never ceases to be annoying. And James' character did a great job not to become the bully he needed to be to overcome Winkler and accomplish his goal. To nail the Salma Hyak Character. The kids loved the movie from beginning to end. We cheered, laughed, applauded, through out the film. And something very rare happened. We felt GREAT after seeing it. Usually after the cartoon movies or super hero movies I check the kids reaction to what they just watched. They usually have no interest in talking about what they just saw. But this movie had them talking and laughing, all the way home. They especially like the throw up scene. This really is an all time Great film.

The Must See Movie of the Year!

Once again Kevin James proves his comedic genius with the film, "Here Comes the Boom." The film overall was a laughing fest from beginning to end and didn't stop until the final credits rolled. Kevin James plays a former wrestler turned teacher who finds himself in a political joust between the schools hard lined principle who threatens to undercut the schools music elective. In an effort to save the class, his character decides to enter the dog eat dog realm of professional MMA. His character manages to climb the ranks after a tumultuous start with a few bruises and a dislocated shoulder. It's definitely a movie that packs a punch in terms of the laughing factor while weaving a moral tale that anything is possible.
