Best For Film’s Cheat Sheets are a weekly look into some of our most beloved Hollywood stars. But even we like a break once in a while. With Kevin James threatening to take the Charmless Comedian Crown away from Adam Sandler in his latest film Here Comes The Boom, we investigate our sentient sack of apples to see if there’s more than meets the eye. (Spoiler! There’s not.)
Kevin James wafts back onto our screens as a listless biology teacher who just wants to chip in a few bucks and save his school when budget cuts loom. No bake sales here, as good-natured Mr. Voss enters the Octagon in a bid to literally fight for what he believes in. Take note, Here Comes the Boom is here to impart laughs and lessons in equal measure. Achieving neither, at least Kevin James gets a pummeling.
