Doesn't lack punch, but many of the jokes feel like open handed slaps than direct hits.

What it does have are two solid leads, doing what they do best, leading up to a seriously nasty punch-fest that should make any audience collectively cringe as the pain works its way into your body.
August 30, 2018
Delivers solid performances between Cube and Day while being an inoffensive, and thoroughly funny comedy with a handful of hit or miss jokes.

Somebody punch me.

Some of Fist Fight's jokes along the way didn't land, but the ones that did worked surprisingly well, creating a well-structured comedy with strong performances.

...a perfectly amiable comedy that runs a rather brisk 91 minutes (which in itself is something that should be commended).
March 9, 2017
Screenwriters Van Robichaux, Evan Susser, and Max Greenfield raise the satirical ante with a nicely jaundiced view of the school, which is underfunded, riven by office politics, and teetering on the brink of anarchy.

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.

Director Keen made a solid comedy with Fist Fight.

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.

Cult status beckons.
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.

The film has a confidence about it that I quite liked, and it's populated with gifted comic performers who are given some legitimately funny scenes. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, etc. - also Available)

Every cast member gets at least one big laugh -- Nanjiani's is so weirdly great they repeat it a handful of times in the closing bloopers -- and the whole thing is over before it has a chance to get old.
February 17, 2017
Fist Fight may be as slight as a half-hour sitcom comedy, but enough of its R-Rated jokes hit their target to sustain the movie's brisk runtime.
February 17, 2017
Fist Fight is a high-concept, intentionally outrageous comedy that somehow works.
February 17, 2017
Fist Fight isn't there to make you think, but to make you laugh, and it mostly does.
February 17, 2017
A consistently intelligent (or at least bright), coherently constructed comedy that is on occasion a rather pointed critique of the American education system in the early 21st century.
February 17, 2017
Uneven but worthwhile due to a strong last act.
February 16, 2017
Vulgar, brutal, surreal and extremely funny.
