Keen makes the transition from small to big screen with ease, his experience of episodic comedy keeping a tight rein on proceedings, but it's the sharp gags of writers Van Robichaux and Evan Susser that move the story along at a rattling pace.

All the amusement value of a smack in the mouth.

The film features a lot of that specifically American semi-improvised style of comedic acting where the actors act as though they've either forgotten what they're about to say, or have suddenly remembered it.

If you've ever wanted to see a squeaky-voiced actor get punched in the face, then Fist Fight has your name written all over it.

It's notable only for the deeply shabby way it treats Mad Men's Christina Hendricks and for its extremely odd penchant for child-abuse jokes.

This fitful timewaster doubles rowdily down on all its flimsy-to-questionable ideas.

Someone should have stopped this ill-matched fight before it even got started.

Ultimately, Fist Fight chucks the opportunity for some serious satire and social commentary for cheap laughs.

Fist Fight is a crude and foul-mouthed comedy whose most notable feature is its utter pessimism about the American high school system.

Even with it being occasionally entertaining thanks to its two leads and some humorous dialogue exchanges, its all rather foolish and forgettable.

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.

Pits a white and black colleague against each other in a film light on social commentary and heavy on crude humour.

A strong contender for both 'Worst Film' and 'Least Funny Comedy' of 2017.

"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

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.
