“HERE COMES THE BOOM” Movie Review. He’s Ain’t any Boomtown Charlie.
“HERE COMES THE BOOM” PRESS PREVIEW
Here’s a Christmas attraction to look forward to, this festive season, only if you are seeking flighty moments.
It’s a raucous sports comedy wrapped under a corny title.
Nonetheless, it’s still a watchable film carrying on its sleeve a heart-and-soul to bowl you over. Hopefully.
The elements of loyalty and camaraderie are randomly reflected here to tell us that if all else fail, what are friends for?
Despite lukewarm reviews when it was recently screened in the West, it’s more likely to be a movie that will take off in the East.
KEVIN JAMES stars as Scott Voss, a 42 year old nerdy Biology teacher from a little known Boston High School.
His occasional childish pranks tell us that he may still be a child trapped in a man’s body.
As a teacher, Scott is having an exasperating time trying to tame his team of teen misfits.
He returns to his university sport of wrestling to save the school’s music department from being disbanded and to prevent his prissy elderly colleague ( Henry Winkler) from being made redundant.
Scott volunteers to become a human punchbag competing as a mixed martial arts fighter in a noble act to raise funds.
SALMA HAYEK is the female lead to lend comic relief and a female touch.
“HERE COMES THE BOOM” is a light hearted drama not to be taken seriously.
It’s crafted to amuse , and to induce a momentary escapade from your day-to-day grind.
It’s surprisingly not that bad.
