HereComesTheBoom.jpgKIDS FIRST! youth film critic Julia Chestnut, age 12, not only got to attend a pre-release screening of Here Comes the Boom (which she reviews below) but attended the film’s red carpet event. Check out the video of her red carpet interviews with Bas Rutten (who plays Niko) sharing his long friendship with Kevin James, and with Kevin James, star of this film, who opens up about playing a fighter in this movie and working with friends who are fighters. “Here Comes the Boom is jam-packed in every scene with a funny part,” Julia says in her review, and gets Rutten and James to talk about that comedy in her interviews.

I love this movie; it is so hilarious! It is the funniest movie I have ever seen. The lead 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, 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 (MMA) fighters get large sums of money, even if they lose the fight. Even though everyone thinks he is crazy, Voss goes on the risky adventure of being an MMA fighter.

Scott is a bored biology teacher who turns the failing 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. Bella is the school nurse and is sweet and helpful, and always gives Scott a hard time. When Scott gets hurt in a fight, she is there for him, but in a not-so-nice way.

Henry Winkler plays Marty Streb in this film. He is also hilarious. Marty is the school music teacher who believes “without music … life would be a mistake.” Marty is there for every fight and nervously cheers Scott on.

Here Comes the Boom is jam-packed in every scene with a funny part. The one I like the most is at the end when Scott is fighting someone who does this move that is slow and can hurt his opponent really badly. Suddenly, the opponent is picked up by Scott, and his face is so funny. His face goes from fierce and competitive to terrified of Scott.

This movie is hilarious! I would give it five out of five stars because it inspires everyone to follow your dreams and never give up! I would recommend it for ages 9 all the way to adults because it can get violent on the fighting scenes.

Here Comes the Boom comes out in theaters Oct. 12 and is rated PG. You don’t want to miss this movie!
