THE FILM - TEACHING

 

Here Comes the Boom "is a 2012 American sports comedy film directed by Frank Coraci,
written by Allan Loeb and Kevin James, and starring Kevin James and Salma Hayek ...
Former collegiate wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old bored and disillusioned biology teacher at the failing Wilkinson High School.
Budget cutbacks at the school jeopardize the continuation of its music program, which would result in its teacher, Marty (Henry Winkler), being laid off.
Concerned for both his colleague and his students, Scott attempts to raise the $48,000 necessary to keep the music program alive...
Scott learns that the loser of the fight receives $10,000, which gives him the idea of raising the money by fighting in MMA (mixed martial arts) himself... "
