Awesome movie! Took my 9 year old son and two of his friends, we all laughed a lot. Being a sap, I even teared up a few times! I highly recommend it. It's a feel good movie with a good story!

Loved this movie. Great acting and cinematography. A wonderful "feel good" kind of film that makes you cheer for the hero and laugh at his humor. Finally, a movie that makes you enjoy the theaters all over again!

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the movie a lot.
We laughed a lot, cried a couple of times.
When the movie ended, the audience including me applauded.

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+).

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.
