The latest in the ever-growing "Kevin James succeeds with workaday job and unduly attractive mate" series, Here Comes the Boom stars James as a slovenly teacher looking for a way to save his school's underfunded arts program. Noting that MMA fighters get paid money--and, hey, money is exactly what his school needs!--James embarks on a career as an amateur cage fighter, thus impressing fellow teacher Salma Hayek, bringing to fruition Henry Winkler's Opus, and saving art while at once irreparably damaging it through physical comedy. HERE COMES THE BOOM, apparently! Or if that doesn't work, then Here Comes the Campbell's Soup Label Collection Drive.
Here Comes the Boom comes from director Frank Coraci, whose work The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Click, and Zookeeper has established him as Left Hand of Happy Madison, there to hold the camera whenever Right Hand Dennis Dugan grows weary. It hits theaters October 12.
