"Here Comes the Boom" movie quotes follow along as one uninspired high school biology teacher decides to take up mixed martial arts to save his school's extra-curricular activities from budget cuts. The sports comedy co-written, co-produced and co-starring Kevin James was created in part by Happy Madison Productions, the production company founded by James's friend and frequent co-star Adam Sandler.
In "Here Comes the Boom," Kevin James plays Scott Voss, a teacher who was once the best in the school but has since lost his passion for his profession and it's beginning to show. That's not all that's lost in the school however as due to budget cuts, the school is forced to eliminate all extra-curricular programs, including music which puts Scott's friend and fellow teacher Marty (Henry Winkler) out of a job. Eager to keep Marty employed and keep the kids active, Scott vows to raise the $48,000 needed to keep the programs afloat.
But Scott is no master fundraiser, in fact, this first effort proves to be highly unsuccessful. Then, while watching UFC with his buddies, Scott gets the brilliant idea that since he was a wrestler (20 years ago) in college that he could get into mixed martial arts and bring home the big paychecks just like the top fighters. As one might imagine, this is easier said than done but Scott is determined and even has a lady (Salma Hayek) by his side cheering him on.If sports comedies are not quite your thing, don't fret. There are plenty of other movies out at the same time including "End of Watch, "Dredd 3D," "Lawless," "Resident Evil: Retribution," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Trouble with the Curve," "The Master," "The Words," and "The Inbetweeners."
