Here Comes the Boom | ★★★★★★★

I did not think that I would like this movie so much. It is about a teacher that rises to the occasion when budget cutbacks threaten his high school's music program. Kevin James is great in this role of an uninspired teacher who moonlights as a mixed martial arts fighter. The story is fairly predictable but here is what I liked about it:

    •  Showed how one person with passion can make a difference;
    •  Wholesome story that attracts young boys who like martial arts;
    •  Nice mix of humor and inspiration - good physical comedy;
    •  The moral message of doing the right thing came through;
    •  Great interactions between a caring teacher and his students;
    •  Good family movie to watch and discuss with the kids.

A nice mix of Rocky and Mr Holland's Opus. I think that I smiled and laughed though most of the movie. I liked it and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
