'Here Comes the Boom' (Oct. 12)

Short Story:
Though he was once a decent college wrestler back in his prime, Scott Voss (Kevin James) is now a lowly high school biology teacher, with a crush on school nurse Bella Flores (Salma Hayek). But when his school's extracurricular programs are threatened by budget cuts, Scott returns to his wrestling life, moonlighting as a mixed martial-arts fighter in order to raise the necessary funds.

What They're Saying:
"Yeah, it's just dopey comedy. We should accept it and move on. Is it any more ridiculous than the plot of Rocky? Well, yes, a lot. But no more ridiculous than Rocky IV, maybe." -- FOX News

Good for Kids?
Although Common Sense Media warns for "sports-related violence, and possibly sexual situations and strong language," Here Comes the Boom is overall a feel-good movie with an important message for kids and adults alike.
