Movie Reviews

  • the remainder of "Boom" is a predictable blend of Adam Sandler-style gross-out moments and underdog-boosting set to oldies rock
    2 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • the pure mechanics of "Here Comes the Boom" land it in an enjoyable, if forgettable, space
    2 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • the movie then becomes a kind of "Rocky"/"Warrior" meets "Mr. Holland's Opus," by way of "Glee"
    2 of 4 by Janice Page [Boston Globe ]
  • the film works hard at its inoffensiveness
    1.5 of 5 by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the film suffers from too many side stories
    2.5 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • the film is still middle-of-the-road fare for comedy fans who are already firmly in James' corner, delivering the sort of brainless laughs that James is famous for
    2.5 of 5 by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic ]
  • the characters aren't distinctive enough to give the movie the beloved status of, say, "School of Rock."
    3 of 5 by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times ]
  • shares much in common with last year's melodrama "Warrior"
    2.5 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • may be a montage-heavy rip-off of fight films since the beginning of time, but it's at least smart enough to show us Scott Voss trying, and combines moments for the heart with blows to the head in agreeably acceptable fashion
    2.5 of 5 by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • it's a meek, joke-light, would-be crowd-pleaser, content to be merely affable. Like many high-concept, low-output comedies
    Review rate : D+ by Nathan Rabin [A.V. Club ]
  • has a tendency toward broad-comic morality tales and multiplex populism that often shades into remedial-level pandering
    by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice ]
  • Reviewed by John Anderson [Variety ]
