James Heywood’s review published on Letterboxd:
Being a regular film as a kid, it doesn't hold up as well as I thought.
Kevin James' character is a bit of a dick, and very creepy with the love interest. A lot of things happen in this film just once, and are brought up at the end as "motivation" that don't feel like "motivation", and are very forced.
The acting is nothing special, it is cool to see people from the UFC make cameos and have fun in the film though. There are some really nice shots during the octagon fights, but that's where the interesting shots stop.
Here Comes The Boom is a nothing special fun movie to watch with a mate, especially if the both of you are recovering from a big night out and just need something chill to watch.
