Critic Reviews of "Here Comes the Boom"
Minneapolis Star TribuneOctober 13, 2012
Weak humor and vanilla plotting have replaced legitimate drama, pathos, and character development.
Film.comOctober 12, 2012
It's nice that the hero goes to the mat for what he believes in. But he's not the only thing that comes down with a thud.
Toronto StarOctober 12, 2012
It delivers exactly what's expected from a flabby mishmash of high school inspirational tale and Mixed Martial Arts fighting exhibitionism ladled out by Adam Sandler running mate Frank Coraci ...
Globe and MailOctober 12, 2012
Here Comes the Boom will probably connect like a haymaker with most of its intended audience. The leads are likeable, and the plot, though beyond incredible, is at the very least distracting.
NewsdayOctober 12, 2012
Why doesn't most of this movie take place in a coma ward?
Detroit NewsOctober 12, 2012
"Here Comes the Boom" is so full of clichés from other, better movies that it is almost plays like a parody of an underdog tale.
Punch Drunk CriticsJanuary 09, 2017
The way James, Rutten, and Winkler connect is engaging and amusing, and Here Comes the Boom is moderately successful on that chemistry alone. And if something can crack my cold, cold heart, that's a victory.
United Press InternationalOctober 09, 2016
All in all, it's great family fun.
CinemixtapeApril 12, 2016
In this tacky "Stand And Deliver" meets "Rocky" hybrid, logic isn't even a word, let alone a concern of the filmmakers.
Empire MagazineDecember 15, 2013
Ultimately, the film is much too derivative to stand (and deliver) on its own, but at its best moments, it proves amiably average, chiefly due to James' natural charms.
ScreenAnarchyJuly 20, 2013
It isn't nearly as funny or inspiring as it wants to be, but it makes a legitimate effort.
Movie MetropolisFebruary 02, 2013
A lightweight action-comedy that only tries to entertain, but at least it meets that modest goal. And it knocks out lighter weight comedies like The School of Rock.
