Here is a film that continually squanders its cast and your time.
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.
March 5, 2017
With its bullying mob mentality and inexplicable character motivation, this is film-making for people who watch YouTube clips of happy-slapping for kicks.
March 3, 2017
All the amusement value of a smack in the mouth.
March 2, 2017
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.
March 2, 2017
This fitful timewaster doubles rowdily down on all its flimsy-to-questionable ideas.

Fist Fight is a crude and foul-mouthed comedy whose most notable feature is its utter pessimism about the American high school system.
February 24, 2017
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.

It doesn't help that neither leading man is much of a comic force in his own right.

More galling and tedious than funny, this quasi-re-imagining of the 1987 high school film, Three O'Clock High, proves that it's entirely possible for a remake of a bad movie to be worse than its inspiration.

Day's the runt, Cube is the bully, and for a punishing 91 minutes of rank idiocy we wait in vain for something funny to happen.
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
The movie is filled with funny people. Unfortunately, it is bereft of funny ideas.
February 17, 2017
Represents a missed opportunity, given the talents of this charismatic and game cast.
February 17, 2017
The first rule of Fist Fight should be that we don't talk about Fist Fight.
February 17, 2017
"Fist Fight" is so terminally unpleasant that it feels like the audience is the one catching a beating. In this fight, there are only losers.
February 16, 2017
Vulgar, brutal, surreal and extremely funny.
February 16, 2017
So ugly, so mean-spirited, so bereft of laughs, I found myself rooting for a technical malfunction if only to catch a momentary breather.

Sometimes silly comedies actually have something to say. Fist Fight is not one of them.
