Here Comes the Boom
Rated PG

In this laugh out loud comedy, former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old apathetic biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and terminate teachers, Voss sets out to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone including fellow co-worker and close friend Bella (Salma Hayek) think that Voss has lost. The tale takes a turn when Voss gains something he never expected and becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
