Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a biology teacher who’s really burned out. Convinced that attending school is a waste of time for him and for the kids, he just gets by day to day. But budget cuts put and end to the music program and Marty Streb (Henry Winkler) is about to be put out of a job. Scott decides the only way to save the music program is to raise the money, $48,000, to save Marty’s job. But no one wants to help, so Scott and Marty, along with school nurse Bella Flores (Selma Hayek) set out on a plan to try to earn the money themselves since the rest of the teachers are not interested. What follows is an excellent adventure through ultimate cage fighting, as Scott learns the value of friendship and support, and the value of education.

This is a really funny film. Kevin James sometimes goes over the top with the slapstick humor, but his style is perfect for this movie. This is definitely a violent comedy, but it’s all in good fun. There’s a lot of heart too. The fighting scenes are really well done, and exciting, and Henry Winkler brings a lot to his part as well as the well-meaning manager to Scott. There is a cute side story of Scott trying to ask Bella out and constantly being shut down. This is a fun part of the movie as well. This is not the most hysterical comedy ever made, but it is a lot of fun, and does have plenty of laughs. I really enjoyed this movie, and I can recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good comedy with lots of sight gags.

    […] have tried this type of film a number of times, but it’s on par with stuff like Mall Cop or Here Comes the Boom which I also rated pretty good. If you like those Kevin James type movies, then this one might […]
