Here Comes the Boom

Kevin James stars in an inspirational family comedy about fighting for students -- literally. Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher, Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy -- most of all the school nurse, Bella -- but in his quest, Scott gains something he never expected as he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
