I attended Here Comes the Boom with some anticipation. I personally enjoy more cerebral movies, but a friend of my wife and me was back to the states after years in Africa and just wanted to see a movie, and she choose this one (we are all three, ah, beyond mid-life in age).
The short review is that I haven't laughed so much through a movie in memory. It was humorous without being slapstick, and had some great "one liners" that kept you engaged. Henry Winkler was a pleasant surprise, being willing to portray as non-cool, non-Fonzie a role as possible. This isn't Citizen Kane, but is what a comedy should be. And a "G" rating? You really could take the kids to this, as I may my grandsons (6 and 8) who would love the combination and school humor and the highly exciting (but not "bloody") fight scenes. I'm surprised to say it, but "two thumbs up".
