Dan O'Neill60 - Itís predictable, obvious, cliched, and tries a tad too hard to be funny, but Here Comes the Boom still seems to have plenty of fun with itself, itís cast, and itís story that comes off as more passionate and heartfelt than you would expect from your usual James vehicle.

Bryan Lienesch43 - It's brief spurts of charm, laughs, and halfway-decent action are, to borrow a metaphor from the movie, just drops in a bucket. Not worth your time.
