Here Comes the Boom

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Scott Voss (Kevin James) used to be a great teacher; ten some odd years ago he was voted Teacher of the Year for his work as a high school biology teacher. He also used to be a good wrestler; twenty some odd years ago he was a collegiate champ. Time and lethargy have robbed him of his desire and motivation for either, but when budget cut backs loom over his high school, he gets the idea to put those two great tastes that taste great together, which should produce either...

Here Comes the Boom

High-Def Digest
11 February 2013
  • Conclusion: It's sort of amazing that all the clichés in this movie don't pummel it to the ground. Somehow, by the end, it's still standing. Mostly with the help of a couple of delightful supporting actors. Sony has provided another solid presentation all the way around. I'm not so sure I'd go as far as putting out a recommendation for 'Here Comes the Boom', but I'd definitely say that it's worth a look if you're even the least bit curious.

DVD Verdict

  • Excerpt: I've never understood the appeal of UFC and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). It's basically men stripped to their bare essentials (save for some gloves and a mouth guard) kicking, punching, and beating the ever living snot out of each other, with blood flowing as freely as Merlot at a San Francisco winery. It looks like the most painful sport on the planet. If you've seen various MMA events and thought they could use some laughs, Here Comes the Boom may be right up your alley.

Here Comes The Boom (Blu-ray Review)

  • Excerpt: Some may have not seen this coming, but I really enjoyed Here Comes the Boom , starring Kevin James, who takes on the role of a teacher trying to save the school’s music program by becoming an MMA fighter.  I will say this, I may not be a big fan of what has come out of Happy Madison productions lately, but I was strangely intrigued by this film.

Here Comes the Boom Review

DoBlu
6 February 2013
  • Excerpt: So there’s this teacher, and he needs money. In desperation, he decides to enter the ring and fight MMA. His school isn’t too happy about it and… Wait, this is NOT Warrior ? But seriously, Here Comes the Boom has a lot of familiarity, from the direct rip from the Mark Wahlberg drama Warrior to every inspirational sports movie ever. Pepper in a little of Happy Madison style, and you end up with a Kevin James movie.

  • Excerpt: Kevin James’ greatest strength isn’t his willingness to fall down or his quick tongue; it’s his ability to be funny without ever seeming like a professional comedian. His natural sense of humor comes out like a series of jokes we might actually think up on a good day, which is why he’s particularly suited to playing a naturally funny everyman for us to laugh with. Unlike many of his former movies, Here Comes The Boom actually seems to understand this.

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Where the sentimentality in Adam Sandler vehicles often feels clumsily shoehorned in as an afterthought, the Happy Madison-produced films of Sandler protégé Kevin James are committed to phony uplift. These groan-inducing celebrations of schmaltz seemingly exist for the many moments where inspirational strings soar while supporting characters gaze admiringly at James as he travels a predictable arc from apathetic loser to underdog hero.

  • Conclusion: It may be formulaic fodder but Here Comes The Booms delivers enough pratfalls and sweet sentiment to make this Kevin James’ most likable star vehicle yet.
