Here Comes The Boom (2012)


Kevin James
Salma Hayek
Henry Winkler

Directed by Frank Coraci

Distributed by Columbia Pictures

The movie is a good idea, bad idea mix up for Kevin James.

Good idea, make a movie about inspiring young people to go for what they want in life no matter the course.

Bad idea, write it yourself.

I think James should allow others to do the writing when it comes to movies.

This sports comedy film is directed by Frank Coraci who directed three of Adam Sandler hit movies from The Wedding Singer in 1995, The Waterboy in 1998 to Click in 2006.

Frank Coraci movie after Click was Zookeeper, which also starred Kevin James and although it was a box office success it was panned by critics and had an approval rating of 14% from Rotten Tomatoes, and it was also nominated for a Razzie Award.

This new movie that the duo is involved in is better than Zookeeper that I can assure, but it is still shy away from being a hit.

The movie plot is about a Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) who now works as a biology teacher and doesn’t take his work serious, due to boredom.

The school he is in is failing badly and there was a need to cut cost, so the music class and the teacher had to be cut.

Scott then jumps up to try and raise money to save the music teacher’s (Henry Winkler) job.

This endeavor made him take on another job as an instructor for a citizenship class. The job wasn’t paying enough though but there he met Niko (Bas Rutten), who asked him for some more tutoring.

He goes to Niko's apartment to tutor him when he found out that Niko was a former mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter.

He also leant that if he can make it into the UFC he can make $ 10,000 for losing so he started training for the part.

The movie features the 2002 song BOOM by P.O.D, as well as numerous songs from the likes of Neil Diamond.

Boasting of wonderful cinematography as the fights go on, the cinematographer in this movie is Phil Meheux. Meheux is the cinematographer behind one of the best James Bond movies out there GoldenEye 1995.

Kevin James was a star as usual in this movie, somehow you just get to love him, but everyone else just strolls by, except Henry Winkler (Fonzie as he is popular known that is if you are familiar with the 1970s American sitcom Happy Days.) Winkler I actually enjoyed.

Salma Hayek again has settled for a movie that is beneath her standard.

I won’t dash off to the theaters to see this movie.
