Movies: Here Comes the Boom
I may be in the minority in this group, but I like Kevin James's movies. I always find them funny and good-hearted, and this new one is no exception. Sure, the plot is contrived and pretty silly. He plays a burned-out high school biology teacher who decides to become a UFC fighter so he can make enough money to save his school's music program, which is led by Henry Winkler (yep, the Fonz his own self). I watched it with a couple of teachers, and they cracked up again and again at the school scenes. I thought it was pretty funny, too. Oh, and did I mention that the movie has Salma Hayek in it? That's enough reason to watch right there, as far as I'm concerned.
