Here Comes the Boom
One teacher still believes in fighting for his students
A former college wrestler is now a bored 42-year-old biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off his music teacher friend, he decides to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter.
