Fist Fight is a crude and foul-mouthed comedy whose most notable feature is its utter pessimism about the American high school system.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Even with it being occasionally entertaining thanks to its two leads and some humorous dialogue exchanges, its all rather foolish and forgettable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Worse of all is the sheer lack of plot, and meaning - and of course when dealing with an irreverent comedy of this nature that's hardly the prevalent aspect, but to be quite so thin narratively proves detrimental to proceedings.

Director Keen made a solid comedy with Fist Fight.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

C+ gags and D- supporting characters sabotage the final grade, but a perma-livid Cube is the star pupil and the brutal playground punch-up doesn't disappoint.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 27, 2017
Pits a white and black colleague against each other in a film light on social commentary and heavy on crude humour.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 26, 2017
A strong contender for both 'Worst Film' and 'Least Funny Comedy' of 2017.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

"Fist Fight" is the result of a script by two first-time feature writers and it shows. Jokes, or what are supposed to be jokes, flow quickly and some hit their mark
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Charlie Day and Ice Cube will live to crack wise another day. "Fist Fight," on the other hand, is where laughter goes to die.

By one way of looking at it, Fist Fight might be seen as a timely nightmare -- not about bullying but being downsized. For that reason alone, it's not a complete waste of time. Also it features a rampaging horse on meth.

Ice Cube shows himself once again as one of the most underrated actors in movies -- but maybe that's because he keeps making movies like this.

Cult status beckons.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

It doesn't help that neither leading man is much of a comic force in his own right.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

It's just too... bad Keen doesn't strive to ascend higher peaks of lunacy in a film designed to do so.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.9/10
February 23, 2017
The middle hour takes such a laughless nosedive that you'll wish they just cut out that 60 minutes and slapped the remaining 30 on TV.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The plotting of Fist Fight is so bare-bones it borders on skeletal.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 22, 2017
The jokes are mostly of Andy shrieking in terror following a threat of physical violence from Ron, because violence is what director Richie Keen thinks is funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Fist Fight is a mixed bag. The film is amusing without ever becoming the side-splitter it obviously wants to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
February 20, 2017
Bogged down by extraneous characters and gratuitous swearing, but the film's energetic, almost cartoonish mania wins us over in the end.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 19, 2017
The sharpest thing here is how WB marketers hyped it as a real after-school slugfest. You remember the days: 'Hey, Jones and Tiny are fighting by the flagpole at 4 o'clock.' Otherwise, it's just another lame Ice Cube or Charlie Day comedy.
| Original Score: 2/5
