Kevin James fills that niche. The one that his pal Adam Sandler surrendered years ago when he opted for those loopy roles. Kevin James remains very much down-to-earth and relatable. He's that likable everyman. HERE COMES THE BOOM is all kinds of predictable. It strives to mash-up two of cinema's most enduring narratives: the plight of teachers under duress and the inspirational underdog sports story. I was ready to roll my eyes a lot at this film. I walked out of the theater grinning. HERE COMES THE BOOM follows convention, does it ever. There's no earthshaking plot twist. But the film's expert execution of those tropes and Kevin James' warm, committed performance won me over. And there are enough laughs. And I'm a devoted enough sports fan. And I'll always root for endeavors that promote educators and expose the disadvantages that hinder them from doing their job. That Salma Hayek is in the movie doesn't suck, either. Her character's name is Bella, and I'd be hard pressed to think of something else more appropriate to call her.

Once upon a time, 42-year-old high school biology teacher Scott Voss (James) won the Teacher of the Year honors. But that was a decade ago, and he's since lost his spark. Today Scott Voss is an indifferent cog in Boston's educational system. But when budget cutbacks threaten to eliminate the school's extracurricular activities - including his friend Marty's (Henry Winkler) music department - Scott Voss is galvanized impetuously into action. Except how do you now raise $48,000, especially in the face of a looming deadline?

Once upon a time, Scott Voss was a Division One collegiate wrestler, a pretty good one, never mind that that was two decades ago.

I was not expecting this movie to be as good as it was. I was expecting a regular comedy with a sports theme but I was wrong. This movie is actually one of the best underdog stories I have seen in a long time. The comedy of the movie just adds to it but it is not the main selling point. Kevin James did a good job actually looking like a mma fighter. I definitely recommend this movie to anybody who likes mma or even just sports underdog stories. You will not regret it.

Finally a movie where I don't have to worry or cringe every other minute from vulgar language or sex scenes. There is the violence in the fighting scenes but I wasn't bothered by it since it is in the ring. We found this movie to be humorous and uplifting and just a great movie for family night. Finally...not an animation movie!

I downloaded this movie on my kindle so my husband and I could watch a movie on our flight back home. Lets just say that by the end of the movie I had become the crazy lady on plane!! I couldn't help but laugh out loud. It was a great movie. I normally don't write reviews but this one was worth telling everyone this is a must see!!

Finally, a movie we can sit and watch with the kids. Language is acceptable, innuendo is there, but not excessive. Always fun to see Henry Winkler as well!

This was a good movie. I enjoyed the plot but not necessarily the violence with the kickboxing and fighting. But it is funny.

Format: Blu-ray
From Frank Coraci, the director of "The Waterboy", "The Wedding Singer" and "Click" comes the comedy "Here Comes the Boom".

Written by actor Kevin James ("The King of Queens", "Hitch", "Paul Blart: Mall Cop"), Allan Loeb ("Just Go With It", "21″, "The Switch") and Rock Reuben ("Zookeeper", "The King of Queens"), "Here Comes the Boom!" is a film inspired by Kevin James' interest in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and watching the UFC, which he and fellow comedian Joe Rogan would watch years ago.

Wanting to create a comedy that ties in with the UFC, James brought in his friends, Joe Rogan ("The Fear Factor", "NewsRadio"), former UFC Heavyweight Champion and "Inside MMA" host, Sebastian "Bas" Rutten and professional Muay Thai kickboxer and trainer Mark DellaGrotte ("The Ultimate Fighter 4″) and also a bunch of professional fighters to the film.

But alongside James, he brought in talent with Salma Hayek ("Frida", "Desperado", "Once Upon a Time in Mexico"), Henry Winkler ("Happy Days", "The Waterboy", "Night Shift", "Click"), Greg Germann ("Ally McBeal", "Bolt", "Sweet November"), Charice ("Glee", "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel") and brother Gary Valentine ("The King of Queens", "Paul Blart: Mall Cop", "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry").

VIDEO:

"Here Comes the Boom" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1 aspect ratio). The film looks fantastic on Blu-ray as close-ups show amazing detail of the characters faces. Skin tones are natural, black levels are nice and deep but the film looks fantastic with no compression artifacts or any visual problems at all.

AUDIO & SUBTITLES:

"Here Comes the Boom" is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD MA and French, Spanish and Thai 5.1 Dolby Digital.
