After a publisher changes a writer's debut novel about a deadly assassin from fiction to non-fiction, the author finds himself thrust into the world of his lead character, and must take on the role of his character for his own survival.
After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and four hundred costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Reactions shots for the MGM Grand fight were filmed at the old Everett, Massachusetts High School, which Ellen Pompeo graduated from in 1987, and was also used as a base camp for the filming of Boston's Finest (2010). 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 »
Kevin James provides a refreshing and underrated performance in "Boom"
I would like to start off this review by saying that I was expecting to hate this movie with a burning passion. Kevin James seems to be on this trend of being in movies with a ridiculous plot line in hopes to attract the youth audience.
"Here Comes The Boom" was a refreshingly good movie that may not have provided me with gut-wrenching laughs throughout the movie, but left me in a great mood and happy I watched it. I feel that it was put in a difficult spot by being labeled a "comedy" movie because I feel it wasn't aiming to be the most humorous movie out there. I think it would have been better labeled to be a "feel-good inspirational" movie.
"Boom" may not be your traditional comedy, but it was a fun ride none the less. Give it a chance, but don't expect to be rolling from laughter. View it as if it was an inspirational movie, and you'll see what I'm talking about.
