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 movie is has a good message but lacks in the funny category. Definitely a movie to take the boys (kids) too. The ladies really didn't enjoy the movie too much but I'd wait until the DVD and save your money. We laughed maybe 4 times throughout the film.

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.

While this movie won't have you falling over from laughter all the way through, it has its moments. A feel good movie that's appropriate for all ages with a great ending and a surprisingly good music score. It follows in some traditional comedy plot devices, but the overall message is great for kids and adults who might have forgotten just how much school impacts and shapes our kids. It's a better movie than most I've watched recently.
