The other day, I was thinking, "What would a two-hour feel-good commercial for UFC look like?" Okay, that wasn't the other day, that was never, but the universe answered me anyway in the form of Here Comes the Boom
, which will hereafter be referred to by the vastly superior title Mr. Brawlin's Opus
. Kevin James stars as a burned-out high school teacher (literally too cool for school!), who takes up cage fighting to save the band program (literally something worth fighting for!). If you're one of the dozens of Americans in the center of the Venn diagram for "People Who Love High School Band" and "People Who Own a Tapout T-Shirt," you're sure to love Mr. Brawlin's Opus
. If not, maybe wait for the sequel, in which Kevin James will take a job as a sniper to help fund the school's chess club.
