Story


In the comedy Here Comes the Boom, former collegiate wrester Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler) Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy - most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek) - but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the remainder of "Boom" is a predictable blend of Adam Sandler-style gross-out moments and underdog-boosting set to oldies rock..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
“..the characters aren't distinctive enough to give the movie the beloved status of, say, "School of Rock."..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
“..shares much in common with last year's melodrama "Warrior"..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
