Is anyone else old enough to remember Three O’Clock High? You are? Well you might get a feeling of deja-vu watching Fist Fight. Which follows a very similar storyline, only this time it’s teachers planning to fight Not the students!

Set on the last day of the year, Fist Fight sees mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. Things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school.

Fist Fight review

5 March 2017 2:01 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

2017 should hopefully have some terrific comedies. Fist Fight, starring Ice Cube and Charlie Day, is not one of them.

At one point during Fist Fight, the new comedy starring Ice Cube and Charlie Day, I could only think of Step Brothers, an inverted Bugsy Malone that casts adults as childish characters and stands up as Adam McKay's masterpiece. Although there's plenty of comic mileage in adults acting like kids, Fist Fight is sadly not a patch on those farcical heights.

The film takes place at Roosevelt High School, an inner city school where budget cuts have left the entire faculty fearing for their jobs, and also fearing the students' designated Senior Pranks Day on the last day of term. As English teacher Mr. Campbell (Day) observes, the pranks don't really seem like pranks - mostly, they involve criminal damage and horse-kidnapping.

History teacher Mr. Strickland (Cube) is having none »

Second Opinion – Fist Fight (2017)

3 March 2017 7:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fist Fight, 2017.

Directed by Richie Keen.

Starring Charlie Day, Ice Cube, Jillian Bell, Tracy Morgan, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Kumail Nanjiani, Dennis Haysbert, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Alexa Nisenson, Stephnie Weir, and Austin Zajur.

Synopsis:

When one school teacher gets the other fired, he is challenged to an after-school fight.

Fist Fight is a film difficult to write-off entirely but also rarely as hilarious as you’d hope it to be on the basis of its talented cast. The fun double act between Charlie Day and Ice Cube just about keeps it on the right side of watchable, but this is strictly a “save it for Netflix” deal unless you’re especially bored.

It’s the last day of school before summer vacation, and all Hell is breaking loose. Teachers are struggling to maintain control of their classes, and hot-headed history teacher Ron Strickland (Ice Cube) ends up lashing out at one of his misbehaving students… »

Fist Fight Review

1 March 2017 5:55 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

The premise to Richie Keen’s Fist Fight is simple, to a point where it’s hard to fathom quite how it’s sustained a feature length narrative. It’s, quite literally, about two men having a fight, and in the most contrived way imaginable that is stretched out across 90 painfully unfunny minutes, with the one paramount, lone joke being that of teachers acting more immaturely than the students they educate. And believe me, it gets tedious pretty quickly.

Charlie Day plays Andy Campbell, a beleaguered high school teacher who remains perpetually bemused, and almost impressed, with the sheer level of irresponsibility in the pranks pulled by his students. Fearing his job may be on the line, and with a pregnant wife at home, life is somewhat stressful – and it’s made even more so when he finds himself in the principle’s office next to the »

Wamg Giveaway – Win the Bad Santa 2 Blu-ray

21 February 2017 7:41 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

When I reviewed Bad Santa 2 here at We Are Movie Geeks, I wrote: “Thornton’s Willy is still an amusing, deadpan movie character with the power to shock, the perfect antidote to the usual saccharine Christmas confection. Whether he’s swigging booze, cussing at the children he has no patience with, or having rough sex in an alley (or bathroom), Willy epitomizes everything a street corner Santa shouldn’t be.  Matching Thornton in terms of coarseness is Kathy Bates, but there is surprising depth to the relationship between mother and son, and much of their back and forth is side-splitting….” read the rest of my review Here

The Lego Batman Movie” is dominating the North American box office with an estimated $44 million this President’s Day weekend — nearly matching the combined haul of “Fifty Shades Darker” and “The Great Wall.”

Lionsgate’s second weekend of “John Wick: Chapter 2” is finishing in a solid fourth place with $19.5 million at 3,113 venues as holdovers propped up the holiday weekend business.

New Line’s opening of high school comedy “Fist Fight” showed only a modest punch in fifth with around $14 million at 3,185 locations. And Fox’s horror-thriller “A Cure for Wellness” was scaring up a modest $4.9 million at 2,704 screens as it was projected to finish 11th.

Movie Review – Fist Fight (2017)

18 February 2017 1:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fist Fight, 2017.

Directed by Richie Keen.

Starring Charlie Day, Ice Cube, Jillian Bell, Tracy Morgan, Dean Norris, Christina Hendricks, Kumail Nanjiani, Dennis Haysbert, JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Alexa Nisenson, Stephnie Weir, and Austin Zajur.

Synopsis:

When one school teacher gets the other fired, he is challenged to an after-school fight.

Fist Fight is exactly what it is billed as being, which is frankly some of the best information that could come out of a review for this over-the-top, outlandishly cartoony R-rated comedy. There actually is a knock em’ down, drag out fight between two wildly different high school teachers (Charlie Day is a lenient and meek pushover both as an English teacher and in life’s general confrontational situations, while Ice Cube is the scary, assertive, steely eyed history teacher that will chew out students with no remorse thanks to his hardened and weirdly explained out of place backstory). It’s »
