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 »
When Scott Voss is at the vending machine, he pulls out two packets of chips that drop, throwing one to a student who saw him. In the next shot he is seen holding two packets of chips again. See more »
What A Pleasant Surprise! Capraesque Feel Good Film!
High art this is not but anyone that expects high level stuff from a movie with this premise is not watching it with the right frame of mind. It's a good old fashion feel good film with a message. Dare I say Capraesque? I wouldn't even classify this as a comedy. It's a fantasy of goodwill film that induces plenty of smiles and packs heart. Kevin James is perfect in the lead and his common man qualities play extremely well here. They lean on the Rocky formula a lot but that's not necessarily a bad thing. One thing is for sure, Salma Hayek is the hottest "Adrian" type love interest to ever play in this type of film. She's amazing throughout. A warm shout out to Henry Winkler who is also perfectly cast as the somewhat eccentric music teacher with the heart of gold.
A wonderful surprise that I enjoyed very much.
