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+).

I definitely was surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. Had good message and not the harsh language. Little violent with the fighting but not extreme.

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.

Took my son, and two of my grand children to see yesterday. They loved it, laughed a lot and I enjoyed seeing them enjoy the movie. They are still talking about it. Repeating some of the lines and asking questions. They can't wait until it comes out on DVD.

This movie really surpassed our expectations and surprised us. Clean, humorous and a great message of how one person when they really become dedicated to a cause, can bring tremendous change.
Great job....bring your older children. The fighting scenes are too much for young kids. Loved it.
