Feel-good sports movie

Okay, so this movie is entertaining for the most part because the characters (and actors) are easy to like. Kevin James plays a good guy who masquerades as a tough guy in the job of a biology teacher. For example, he drives a matte black Triumph motorcycle to work with a leather jacket and a 50s style helmet. He's also good friends with a music teacher, played by Henry Winkler (yes, The Fonz), who is about to get laid off because the school doesn't have the money to continue to support the music program. James's character gets the idea to become a UFC fighter to make enough money to save his friends job. Let the pummeling begin!

insiting and funny - great combo

This is a great movie that touches on the latest issues of budget cuts and general apathy in the population it tells us that we - each one of us - CAN make a difference if we just Try - and that it isn't the goal the only thing that matters, but the mere fact of trying - really trying - that makes the difference.

Entertaining as expected

I am a sucker for these kinds of movies & I was sort of unsure how the movie was going to be when they started showing previews to ******* twilight but it was a decent entertaining movie, what you would expect. I am not surprised that the critics don't love it because it's fairly predictable but it provided good value, especially for a cheaper early show on a sunday morning.

I loved this movie! I went by myself to see it because my poopie family wouldn't go. Their loss. I am a huge Kevin James fan. His agility in some of the stunts he does always amazes me for a bigger guy. He looks so good with his new slimmer self. It looked to me that he had to learn a few skills for this film. I will admit I had to look away during some of the fighting scenes. Loved the messages most of all. Please go see this movie, even if you have to go solo!

I took my 12 year old son and we had a great time...it's a funny & inspiring movie. Probably won't win any awards but still a fun night out.
