AMERICANISM at its best

Here Comes the Boom is about a biology teacher named Scott Voss who tries his best to save his school’s music department when the board won’t provide any money. Scott tries many things to raise money until,he comes across MMA. Scott thinks that this is where he can really earn the cash needed to save the music program. Scott is inexperienced in fighting but luckily, he has his friends who can help him along the way. I really enjoyed watching this movie as it had me laughing a lot and I think it might be a good family movie to watch. Overall, I would rate Here Comes the Boom 4/5.

A poor excuse for a movie which manages with its predictability and clichés to
underperform even tv movies.
Kevin James should not attempt to write. The producers are aping School of Rock but there is no comparison. However the Dutch actor in it is quite good. Kevin James cannot save this.

I just finished watching Here comes the Boom this weekend. It was so funny and the story line was so inspirational. A small High school finds itself going into dept and the beloved music program was unable to be paid for. Lenny (one of the teachers) was devastated when he found this news. He made it his job to make sure that he gets the money to keep the music program going. With no experience he decides to become a wrestler leading up to the big fight that can save the music. I feel like this movie can be taken in so many different ways and genres. Either an inspirational movie or even a comedy and it even has some action in there. Watching this movie over made me realize something very important. But u have to watch it to find out. Kevin James is such a good actor and he made this movie so much better. Just by the way he played his role as Lenny really brought the comedy to the movie. As an actor I feel he has a very good way of getting any type of message to the audience and whoever is watching. I really hope you guys like this movie.

One of the better Kevin James movies. Lots of laughs, good themes, first class supporting actors. And, he's fitter and trimmer than in some of his previous films.

I liked this film. It was better then I expected. Had some pretty good fight scenes mixed with humor. Kevin James is fun.
