Here Comes the Boom Reviews

We Got This Covered

Here Comes the Boom is slightly above average for this sort of broad comedy, but is hampered by too many significant issues to be worth a watch.

To see MMA marketed once again to the Truck Nutz Energy Drink Crowd is, yes, predictable, but still disappointing. It's impossible for me to see Henry Winkler singing an acoustic version of a POD song in an airport as anything but an embarrassment.

James creates a witty, confident everyman in the first act, only to sacrifice him to the pic's demands for formula and sentimentality thereafter.

Couldn't Kevin have raised the money by selling hard drugs or trafficking underage women? The closing scenes would, under those circumstances, have seemed only marginally less peculiar.

The film would have the same audience that came to see James get elbowed in the face also get weepy over disadvantaged schoolchildren.

When the laughs come so few and far between that you can count them on one hand, it's not surprising that it leaves such a bland taste in your mouth.

There's hardly a serious message being made about the plight of America's education system here, which makes one wonder what the point of it is.

Merely the kind of film that once it's on DVD will end up as necessarily mindless fodder for bench-pressing numbskulls to watch in a gym.

Now, then. When is Stallone going to start playing a head teacher? Maybe the switch would work the other way...

Kevin James is so gosh-darned likable that he can make up for a lot of sub-par material, but not even he can make this tiresome effort work.

Ultimately, the film is much too derivative to stand (and deliver) on its own, but at its best moments, it proves amiably average, chiefly due to James' natural charms.

There's nothing here that you haven't seen a dozen times before and done much better.

Suprisingly charming family fare, although it is pure formula from start to finish.

Kevin James spends much more time in the embrace of sweaty tattooed males than he does in the arms of Salma Hayek.

About as funny as being tickled by Chuck Liddell, which would really just hurt. Unfortunately for this reviewer, there was no tapping out.

Every now and again a film comes along that could play as a parody of itself with minimal alteration, and 90 per cent of them seem to have some kind of connection to Adam Sandler.

It isn't nearly as funny or inspiring as it wants to be, but it makes a legitimate effort.

"Here Comes the Boom" is all banality, though it delivers some goodwill even as it pulls a muscle trying to get its premise going.

Brian Orndorf

Indeed, James does plenty of fall-down-go-boom, but it's wasted on a tediously conventional movie that does surprisingly little with the spectacularly strange sight of James in stampeding MMA mode.

... a bizarre hybrid of Rocky, Warrior and Mr. Holland's Opus ...
