Here Comes The Boom DVD Review

Synopsis: Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old, apathetic high school teacher. When budget cutbacks threaten to cancel some of the school's programs and lay off its music teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott creates a scheme to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy - most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek). In his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he inspires his students and becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.

Review: I'm going to confess up front, I love Kevin James.  The dude is hilarious.  I've loved pretty much everything he's been in (yeah, even Paul Blart).   Its no surprise to me then that I enjoyed Here Comes the Boom.  It is a surprise that I enjoyed the ENTIRE film, not just James' role.  The supporting cast in this one is outstanding with talents you may already know like Henry Winkler and Selma Hayek...and some you may not be instantly familiar with like Bas Rutten, who plays a retired MMA fighter from Holland that trains James.  This film has a somewhat predictable premise...bad program in trouble, teacher shows heart of gold and comes through to earn money needed at all costs.  The film may not be anything groundbreaking or new, but the ride sure is fun.  This one is a great watch, we highly recommend.
