Here Comes The Boom successfully mashes three genres. Firstly its one of Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions and has its fair share of the cheap lowbrow gags then secondly it's a 'To Sir With Love' type of student-teacher film about a biology teacher who rises against the odds to back his students when the school music program is terminated... and then it's a fight movie. It could have been a dud but it manages the balance carefully and puts more emphasis on the later two qualities making it a sincere and well intended flick. Kevin James is great in the lead as he breaks away from his usual potty humour and offers a gentler, more compassionate performance. Henry Winkler plays a daggy music teacher who supports him along the way and while he overdoes it at times, he's still the Fonze and has some great moments. UFC and Mixed Martial Art fighting are global sensations but haven't been depicted on film all that much (Warrior & The Philly Kid) and so it gives Here Comes The Boom a fresh take on what could have been a typical and tiresome story. Oh and there's an arse-crack gag that had us in stitches and demanded a rewind! PMSL!
