Fist Fight: Blu-ray Review










The Movie:

On the last day of the school year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst outrageous senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that are putting his job on the line just as his wife is expecting their second baby. But things go from bad to worse when Campbell crosses the school’s toughest and most feared teacher, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), causing Strickland to be fired. To Campbell’s shock—not to mention utter terror—Strickland responds by challenging him to a fist fight after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire as Campbell takes ever more desperate measures to avoid getting the crap beaten out of him. But if he actually shows up and throws down, it may end up being the very thing this school, and Andy Campbell, needed.

Buddy comedy films have been around for a very long time and are actually some of my favorite comedies out there. Those kind of movies however are either really good or really bad. Surprisingly enough this film kind of teeters the line and it’s neither bad nor good. The plot pretty straightforward in its approach and had a pretty good message about standing up for ones self but for the most part it can be fairly predictable. Now with that said Day is one of my favorite comedic actors and I thought he was great and played situations very clumsy and funny like only he could. Cube was very funny as well but my main issue with him in films in recent years is that he tends to more or less play the same character every time. It’s that kind of thing that makes the film a bit less enjoyable. The supporting cast was extremely funny as well but a few of them (Jillian Bell) felt like in certain instances they were trying just a little bit too hard for the laugh. The movie is definitely fun to watch and I can almost guarantee that you’ll be laughing out loud at various moments but this one might only be good for a one time watch. 6/10
