THE BOOM. A high school biology teacher turns to late-night MMA fights in order to earn money to save the school's ailing music program. This movie has some funny parts and the film in some part's was like rocky if it was a comedy.

Turns out, Mr. Winkler is just as fun and charming now as he was during my childhood.

THE GOOD: Scott Voss (played by the funny and talented Kevin James) is a former wrestler turned apathetic teacher at a high school that is undergoing budget cuts. When he learns that the job of his music teacher friend (Winkler) will be the first to go, he comes up with a plan to raise the needed money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter –well, why not? Along the way, the uninspired teacher begins to inspire others, including Bella, the school...
