I hadn't heard a lot about this movie which is too bad because parents are always looking for a clean, fun movie....this one has something for everyone! My 17 year old even enjoyed this one. I thought this movie had an uplifting story that could appeal and inspire everyone, it sends a message that we all need a little more of these days: when you see someone or a community that needs help....step in and do whatever you can to make things better!

I really loved it!!! I took my 9 year old the other day just to have something to do, and figured that with Kevin James and Henry Winkler it would at least be enjoyable and that it was. I do not understand a bad review for this movie, it was fun with a message. maybe not one we haven't seen before, but I'm getting rather tired of Zombies and language that is cheap and disgusting. Man, look at our society, it's really sad that you can't just have a good clean enjoyable film come out and they have to rush to give a bad review and other stupid people follow that review and don't go see it as they have allowed others to dictate what they will or won't like...whatever..if you're going to expect War and Peace, or you need the drug of sex and disgusting language than clearly this movies is not for you...don't go...but don't go and give bad reviews to an innocently fun and enjoyable film you can actually take your kids too other than another Pixar film...(which are always the best!!)

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.

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.
