Reviews: Here Comes the Boom (2012)

Reviews for this film from our members:

    • Excerpt: The most telling precedent for this may be the movies of Frank Capra, sentimental, light-hearted fare that some derided as “Capra-corn.”
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Honestly, I was surprised that I enjoyed “Here Comes the Boom” as much as I did. Sometimes movies like this can do that, and that’s a good thing.

    • Excerpt: “Here Comes the Boom,” which not only stars Kevin James but was co-written by him as well, is the best thing the actor has done in years. Although this starts out threatening to be “Bad Teacher” minus Cameron Diaz in push-up bras, it rapidly turns into something closer to “The Dead Poets Society” meets “Warrior.” It’s a winning combination.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ Doddle
    • Excerpt: Kevin James finally punches out a good one.
  • Dan Lybarger @
    • Excerpt: Kevin James is an appealing performer who’d probably be even more likable if he could pick out better scripts.
  • Jason McKiernan @ Next Projection
    • Excerpt: …the only thing serious about Here Comes the Boom is how offensively moronic it is, and how egregiously it peddles its moronism as heartfelt sentiment.
