Here Comes the Boom was a pleasant surprise. The trailer made the film appear to be ridiculous and as horrible as all the other Kevin James films. The film had a lot of heart, and not going to lie it made me tear up.
A basic background on the film, Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a High School science teacher who has loss his passion in teaching. He always relies on Marty Streb (Henry Winkler), the music teacher to do his extra work. When Scott finds out that the music program is going to be dismantled due to lack of funds, he feels he needs to do something. While teaching his citizenship class, he comes up with the brilliant idea of being a MMA fighter. Will he save the music program? You’ll have to watch to find out.
The movie reminded me of a comedic Rocky. This film was definitely a sleeper in the box office, but not one that should be missed.
I give this movie the rating of 5 Stars: One for the Books.
“Till next time, I’ll see you at the movies.”
