Review: Fist Fight

Can Charlie Day stand alone?
Fist Fight was that movie that I thought Ice Cube would want us to compare to Ride Along, but please don't go in this movie thinking that. After about five minutes, you can tell what the issue is with this movie, its Charlie Day. Now I'm not saying he's abad actor, or that he doesn't provide enough attitude to bring nice guy teacher to the screen. I just feel like Charlie Day is only good when he's behind a better, strong comedian.

At this movie, maybe you can comment one below, I can't think of a movie Charlie Day has done that he was the lead actor. In Horrible Bosses or It's Always Sunny he's always with a much more successful actor who has proven themselves as funny.

Ice Cube didn't really have a role in this movie, despite the picture used above. He barely has that many lines in the movie.He was an under used part that they could have ran home with.

Now I will say that the last 20 minutes, or so, of the movie was probably the funniest parts. When Charlie Day started to go crazy, I went crazy into laughter. If they could have just fast forward to that part, I think this movie would have been so much more funnier.

Even some of the pranks the students did to the teachers, though crazy and something I don't think would really happen, was crazy funny.

Tracey Morgan is a nice sight in to see in this movie, since we haven't really seen him since his accident.

So be prepared to laugh for a few minutes during the movie at the pranks, and then again at the end of the movie.
Nothing in between.

3 out of 5

  4. Horrible. The constant joking from a teacher regarding sex with underage minors (high school students ) was crossing a disgusting line.

  5. 4 Stars for me, total crack up - Rated R for language no one under 18. Loved Charlie Day and Ice Cube along with the other stars.

    Like it or not! This crazy stuff and much worse is going on in today's school environment. Kudos to the actors, director and those involved for bringing this material to the big screen. Quite funny, frankly.

  9. Totally agree that this movie is quite boring until the last 20 minutes. That's when things finally get funny. Charlie Day can be really funny but typically only when his character gets stressed. If you bother to see this in the theater, stay for the outtakes - they are better than the movie itself.

    It was funny but I have no idea why this move is needed. Just to make money, okay.

    I thought Charlie Day was terrific! I was very glad to see that they left most of the humor in the movie and didn't spoil it by putting it all in the trailers.

    I really like Charlie Day. I didn't go into this thinking it was going to be the best movie that I've ever seen. I agree that there were gaps that just weren't that funny; but the funny scenes were really funny!
