Ice Cube vs. Charlie Day is nothing but awesome.
18 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Born to play this role, Ice Cube is a hard as nails, too gangsta for the room teacher, who went too overboard in disciplining a student on accountability, and when Charlie Day, who plays a wimp of a man, rats him out in order to save his job, it's on like Donkey Kong, after school.

There was a similar movie back in the 80s called Three 0'Clock High that was pretty good, but Fist Fight gives the story a unique twist by having the Teachers battle it out rather than the students, which in Fist fight oddly is a strong symbol of how good awful the American school system is and how that could cause frustration for those good teachers who want to educate.

And its real cool that the movie has a message and all. Good comedy comes from a real place, and the comedy is real good. Charlie Day works well as a straight man. He's a square who gets big laughs from conversations with the zany cast of characters played by some funny people. Like Jillian Bell who plays a nice teacher with a meth habit and sees potential in hooking up with one of the legal senors in her class, and my man Tracy Morgan whose has a love for his student's mothers and tries to teach Day to stand and fight like a man, even thought he's going to get murdered.

But Ice Cube, he earn that top billing. This was the dream role he built up to. Literally somewhere right in the middle of Dough boy from Boyz in the Hood and Nick Parsons from Are We There Yet? Just an great collaboration of what cube is made of.

The movie is filled with a bunch of Laugh out Loud moments designated for a Rated R crowd, and it leads up to an awesome battle royal between Cube and Day that's just hands down entertaining.

Fist Fight is a knock out.
