good message - clean - not as funny as I thought

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.

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!

Ingredients include; patriotism, pride in hard work, positive involvement in your school, admiring those who make sacrifices for the good of others, a positive view of religion/prayer. It was a beautiful and inspiring movie.

Giving it a fighting chance

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.

Boom is the bomb!

When a totally demoralized 42-year-old Biology teacher decides to make his own decision instead of continuing to be a victim of the system, he accomplishes his goal to save his friend's job. Kevin James manages to insert enough humor to keep a rather serious tale light enough for most any audience. He plays the part of the Biology teacher, which is funny in its own right, who goes mixed martial arts, MMA. Some may say this movie is violent, but it is no more violent and no less funny than "Paul Blart Mall Cop". Every grandparent should take every grandchild to see this film where people make their own decisions, think for themselves, and accept the consequences. Boom is a rare movie.
