'Here Comes the Boom'

Kevin James as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter? Unlikely, to be sure, but also reasonably fun in a comedy that suggests how far teachers will go to protect programs in their schools.

That's the setup as James plays such an instructor, who takes up fighting to raise the funds to keep students' music playing in his high school. Salma Hayek plays his love interest ("unlikely," Part 2), and Henry Winkler and UFC heavyweight champ Bas Rutten also appear. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary; deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (PG: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
