Chael Sonnen's quote, "I didn't tap," was not originally in the script, but when he had done it, Kevin James liked it so much that he kept it in the movie and awarded him with $200 bonus. See more »
During the final fight scene with Ken Dietrick the end of Round two is crowned by Dietrick throwing a Haymaker into Scott's lower jaw. This knocks out Scott's mouth guard, you see the mouth guard fly out of his mouth, and land on the wire of the octagon, in the next shot you see it still hanging on the wire. Yet Scott has to hazily walk halfway across the octagon to retrieve his mouth guard from the floor. See more »
Here Comes the Favorable Review! My Favorite Movie of 2012!
My wife and I really enjoyed this movie! It's a must see if you've been waiting for a quality family movie and provides a full spectrum of Friday night entertainment. Even though it won't win any Academy Awards it's my favorite movie of 2012 because it just made me feel good.
Good Points: Perfect casting; all the characters were very believable and enjoyable to watch. I really liked Henry Winkler's performance. He stole the show. The movie is genuinely funny with many out loud moments. It's a family movie with a clean positive message. It was also touching at times. The screenplay was well-written. It's didn't contain too many original ideas but you know it really didn't matter--it was satisfying. It wasn't a cheaply made movie; it showed a quality production and was the pacing was perfect--I was thoroughly engrossed from beginning to end and it never lagged. Salma Hayek provided both eye candy and a lot of substance.
Bad Points: There really wasn't anything bad about the movie. Perhaps it was slightly corny but I didn't care. It contained violent and bloody fighting scenes, so exercise caution for children under 8 years old. The title of the movie is odd and I wish they had chosen a better title.
10/10 rating; well worth a full price ticket!
