You may already know that Kevin James is one of our favorite actors. In “Here Comes The Boom” he plays Scott Voss a burnt out biology teacher who lets the kids do what they want in class while he comes in late and chases after Salma Hayek (the school nurse, Bella Flores).
In a staff meeting, we find out that the school has been losing money and needs to cut some services including the music department. Henry Winkler (the FONZ! as Marty Streb) is the music teacher and Voss’s friend.
James steps up in the meeting saying they will raise the money needed to keep music in the school. But he does not know what to do until he sees a mixed martial arts fight on TV and decides the money is good, and since he was a pretty good wrestler in college, he might be able to do well….or at least lose and still make money.
“Here Comes The Boom” is a very funny, inspirational, movie good the entire family. No f-words. Kind of predictable (I really did not care…it was still a lot of fun) with one major surprise.
Kevin James is awesome, as is Salma Hayek **sigh, my heart**.
