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.

We took my son for his 11th birthday. Lots of belly laughs! The bonus was that Dad is a UFC fan! There were some lulls in the acting but overall an enjoyable movie.

I saw this and bought it right after I rented it. The most negative comment I saw occasionally would use the term "far fetched"! Not according to the professional MMA guys who trained him! Mr James is a pretty stout lad and actually took some real HARD blows during filming! They said he took them well too! The main scenes were with MMA current fighters; not stunt guys! Point? They were not so good at missing a punch as stunt men! Especially since they were training themselves for upcoming fights! Kevin James hand speed and movement was real! I was pleasantly shocked! I suggest you critics who think his character was "far fetched" get in the ring with Mr James and see how you look after 1/2 round if he allows you to last that long! I enjoyed his character's motivation. The humor was not abundant but it was present. The music was very good. Don't leave the room when he enters the ring for the last match! I loved that! I think pretty much any age above a young child can enjoy this movie.

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.

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.
