Action, Comedy
Kevin James is a likable oaf of an actor. He’s not the funniest guy in the room, but he’s good-natured, doesn’t take himself too seriously and has a charming, goofy personality. It worked on TV; it’s worked in a couple of movies before; and it works again in Here Comes the Boom. He plays a high school teacher who, in an effort to save the school’s struggling music program (run by the nicest actor in show business, Henry Winkler), begins a side career as a mixed-martial-arts fighter. You could, in fact, buy the public Kevin James doing something like that. Here Comes the Boom provides James with a role that fits his personality and build; he plays it for laughs, and makes a minor social point. Though far from great, Boom jumps over a low bar with relative ease.
