I love this movie; it is so hilarious! It is the funniest movie I have ever seen. The main character in this movie is Kevin James, who plays Scott Voss and of course he is what makes the film the comedy it is. This film is about how an apathetic high school biology teacher Scott Voss (Kevin James) decides to find a way to raise money for his school to keep the music program going. He quickly figures out that mixed martial arts fighters get large sums of money, even if they loose the fight. Even though everyone thinks he is crazy, Kevin goes on the risky adventure of being a MMA fighter. Scott Voss turns the falling high school around as he becomes the tough and daring MMA fighter. Boy, does he take a beating! Yet, he never gives up as he becomes inspired by the music teacher and his students. Salma Hayek plays Bella Flores in this movie. She is the school nurse and is sweet, helpful, and always giving Scott a hard time. When Scott gets hurt in a fight she is there for him, in a not-so-nice way. Henry Winkler plays Marty Streb in this film. He is also hilarious. He is the school music teacher who believes "without music, life would be a mistake." Marty is there for every fight and nervously cheers Mr. Voss on. It is jam packed in every scene with funny parts. The one I like best is at the end when Scott is fighting someone. He makes a move that is slow and can hurt his opponent really bad. Suddenly, the opponent is picked up by Scott, and his face is so funny. His face goes from fierce and competitive to terrified. This movie is hilarious! I give it 5 out of 5 stars because it inspires everyone to follow your dreams and never give up! I recommend it for ages 9 all the way to adults. It does get violent during the fighting scenes. Here Comes the Boom comes out in theaters October 12 and is rated PG. You don't want to miss this movie! Julia Chestnut, age 12, KIDS FIRST!
