Here Comes the Boom is one of those movies that has an unfortunate tag line–teacher becomes MMA fighter to raise money. It’s almost drowning in cliches. The movie itself, however, is excellent.

Here Comes the Boom is a good, clean, and entertaining movie. Perhaps even anĀ inspiring one. It is about setting a good example, following your dreams, the power of music, and not giving up. All of those have been used in movies many times, but the themes work together well here.

It almost has to be seen to be believed, but it is a thoroughly enjoyable movie. I highly recommend it.
