Here Comes Boom

 

 

An entertaining comedy about a “loser teacher” who decides he has to help a friend. His efforts seem doomed to failure, as does his love life, but somehow he manages to find a way to at least do something. The movie deals with the “over-the-hill” experience that most adults face. It also deals with the danger of letting difficulties turn us into apathetic and uncaring persons. You end up rooting for this “loser” in spite of his stupidity and ineptness. Good movie for some good laughs and for a light discussion about not giving up. There are also a couple of positive references to the Christian faith, something very different from most Hollywood movies.
