Loved this movie. Great acting and cinematography. A wonderful "feel good" kind of film that makes you cheer for the hero and laugh at his humor. Finally, a movie that makes you enjoy the theaters all over again!

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.

It has been months since I went to a movie. I went under protest with my wife. I was not sure about how MMA or UFC would work with the PG rating (too many Van Dammes movies). However, the mix of MMA/UFC fights did not detract from the movie.
I was LOL from the beginning of the movie. The whole audience was also laughing with me. They were a mix of families, younger couples and baby-boomers like me.
The chemistry between all the characters contributed to my enjoying the movie and made the film's story line believable. I particularly enjoyed watching the interactions between Kevin James and Henry Winkler (always will be the Fonz for me). The message of funding extracurricular activities like music impact on kids came through.
I would take my older grandkids to this movie (8+).

Finally a good funny movie that the entire family can watch. The plot is predictable but it doesn't matter in this lighthearted comedy which proved to be well worth the price of admission. If your looking for a relaxing, fun movie on date nite this is just what your looking for.
