Generally I refuse to pay what they are asking for a movie without special effects or great cinematic value. Broke that "rule" for Boom to take my son and glad I did. Granted it's not a deep plot by any stretch of the imagination, but if you need a good clean movie to get away from it all for a couple hours it's worth the trip to your area theater.

It's Kevin James. You know what to expect. If you like him, you'll like this movie--and he's so likable. Seriously, this is a humorous, clean, light-hearted movie, appropriate for older children and up. Predictable but fun story with enjoyable characters. Go see it.

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!

When a totally demoralized 42-year-old Biology teacher decides to make his own decision instead of continuing to be a victim of the system, he accomplishes his goal to save his friend's job. Kevin James manages to insert enough humor to keep a rather serious tale light enough for most any audience. He plays the part of the Biology teacher, which is funny in its own right, who goes mixed martial arts, MMA. Some may say this movie is violent, but it is no more violent and no less funny than "Paul Blart Mall Cop". Every grandparent should take every grandchild to see this film where people make their own decisions, think for themselves, and accept the consequences. Boom is a rare movie.

Although there were some inplausible holes in the story, it was a GOOD story. Nice to see the stress of improtance of music in our lives and what some educators will do to ensure the arts stay in school. Winkler was great! Also nice to see a movie with no sex or bad language.
