An unexpectedly fun and comedic entry in the filmography of Kevin James, Here Comes the Boom may not break any new ground - hell, it's not even that memorable - but the wonderful performances, thoughtful storyline and even somewhat enjoyable fight sequences make it a WAY-better-than-average movie in its own right.
But, if the science teacher is giving all his money back to the school so they can pay the music teacher, doesn't that mean that the science teacher is paying the music teacher to teach music at the school where the science teacher works for free? What a sucker!
Now to think about it, it's unoriginal with a reuse plot and the same genre's motivation, but as an improvement for enjoyment thanks to the humor and the cast to better express the storyline's sense of a actual, worthy heartening nature without being totally silly. (B+)
Did Kevin James star in a movie that's actually entertaining? If the trailer is to be trusted, this seems like it will be genuinely good. Even if it's not, it's got Salma Hayek, so I'll be seeing it anyway.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this, having my last Kevin James film watched being Paul Blart (several years ago, I really didn't like it). It was very pleasing to see a more honest to goodness comedy that didn't rely on the cheap or disgusting to entertain. The story was fun and funny. It's worth checking out at least once.
Ok the plot has been done time and time again but this just felt different, There wasn't an awful lot of comedy, Where the movie really shines is the fight scenes, They were done very well they weren't silly, They were very gripping, Easily Kevin James best film.
Bas Rutten and Henry Winkler both make this film well worth a watch if you're into light-hearted comedies. However, Kevin James is surprisingly effective in this film as well. Kind of makes me wish he'd break away from making god-awful Sandler movies and try his hand at better screenplays from filmmakers with actual talent.
