Here Comes The Boom is an upcoming comedy film that revolves around the story of a 42 year old biology teacher, Scott Voss (played by Kevin James) in a failing high school. He was a former wrestler in college and now that the cutbacks are threatening to impinge the music program and threatens to fire its teacher Marty Streb (Henry Winkler), he decides to raise money by becoming a mixed martial arts fighter in his spare time. Everyone in the school thinks that Scott has completely lost his mind most especially the school nurse, Bella Flores (played by Salma Hayek). Although, despite all these challenges he will become a hit that will bring the school up to its feet once again. Let’s take a look on what is in store for us in this new film: Here Comes The Boom
“Here Comes The Boom: Kevin James At His Comic Genius
Teacher Moonlights as MMA Prizefighter to Save School’s Music Program
Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a bored biology teacher at mythical Wilkinson High in Massachusetts, a cash-strapped school suffering from low morale. The apathetic slacker is part of the problem, as he sets a horrible example for his students, between stealing candy from vending machines and always arriving late for class.
During recess, the bored, 42 year-old bachelor makes a habit of flirting with the beautiful school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek). However, she just as routinely rebuffs his advances with gentle reminders of how often she’s rejected each of his requests for a date.
The plot thickens the day Principal Betcher (Gregg German) assembles the faculty in the auditorium to announce his latest budgetary cutbacks. Those money-saving measures not only include plans to eliminate afterschool activities like the debate club and field trips but even the entire music program.
That means Scott’s colleague Marty Streb (Henry Winkler) will be callously laid-off right before earning tenure. And to add insult to injury, the dedicated music teacher’s firing comes at a time when his wife (Nikki Tyler-Flynn) is pregnant.
This dire state of affairs inspires Scott to prevail upon the principal to preserve his pal’s position. But Betcher says he simply doesn’t have the $48,000 to pay Marty.
Therefore, Scott, who hasn’t wrestled competitively since college, decides to raise the cash by moonlighting in the ring as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter. With the help of Marty and a retired kickboxing champ (Bas Rutten), he proceeds to whip himself into the best shape a middle-aged couch potato might hope for.
So unfolds Here Comes the Boom, a sweet-natured, overcoming-the-odds sports saga combining familiar elements of Rocky (1976) and Nacho Libre (2006). Directed by Frank Coraci (The Waterboy), the star vehicle showcases Kevin James’ comic genius at his best, whether he’s doing pratfalls in a mask and ill-fitting stretchy pants or futilely wooing the woman of his dreams.
The paint-by-numbers plot inexorably builds to a UFC-sanctioned showdown between Scott and an intimidating adversary (Krzysztof Soszynski) for a purse conveniently matching Marty’s salary.”
