    On the last day before summer vacation at a rough-and-tumble high school, mild-mannered teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) accidentally causes his fearsome colleague Ron Strickland (Ice Cube) to be fired. When Strickland then challenges him to a fist fight after school, Campbell must find a way to avoid a vicious beating. Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell, Christina Hendricks, Dean Norris, and Dennis Haysbert co-star in this comedy directed by Richie Keen. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

      Light, Breezy, Funny (Enough) Comedy

      Going in with low to optimistic expectations there was no great weight on the shoulders of Fist Fight. Released in February, Fist Fight is a comedy starring Ice Cube and what you get from Charlie Day in between seasons of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia-which is more or less the same Charlie Day, but likely a little less energetic and manic due to his more lax schedule. There was no reason to believe Fist Fight would be a memorable comedic experience and it isn't, but it isn't the cheap fest it very well could have turned out to be either. Rather, Fist Fight is a comedy that understands its premise is outlandish and unrealistic from the get-go and thus never takes itself seriously as a representation of the public school system (though some aspects could certainly be interpreted as exaggerated issues) and thus ramps up the ridiculous with every scene-testing the limits of how far the individual audience member is willing to go with them. It would be easy to drop off of the ride at any point along the way, but Ice Cube and Day offer a funny and different enough dynamic that the two parallel arcs are interesting enough to watch develop and culminate for the scant ninety minute runtime. Sure, the premise is slim and one can feel the ride straining itself a bit as it nears the inevitable third act, but with a one-two punch of climactic scenes that includes both an elementary school talent show as well as the titular fight (which more than delivers on its promise) there is plenty to be pleased with once the credits begin to roll and the bloopers begin to play. Of course, Fist Fight isn't the pinnacle of comedic filmmaking and it certainly isn't what Thomas Edison had in mind when he imagined what his motion picture camera might one day be able to achieve, but as far as comic relief it is exactly that-it serves the purpose it was intended for squarely. We know what Ice Cube excels at and we know what we're getting when Charlie Day pops up on screen and the best thing to be said for Fist Fight is that it plays up those two personas until it forces them to collide and while that may indicate there is nothing new to be found in either the story or the performances it does mean it features two charismatic and admittedly funny people doing what they do best-what's wrong with that? Not a whole lot in my humble opinion.

      I know Ice Cube can kill it when it comes to action and drama, but rarely does he do comedy. (Although, Are We There Yet and Are We Done Yet were hilarious). Watching him be hardcore made this movie even more comical. And being a teacher just about made me kill over laughing at these actors portraying teachers and the type of school in this film because I so want to do some of these things. Most teachers do! Don't think about it. Get it! You'll thank me.

      Title pretty much says it all. They showed the funniest parts (maybe 5 jokes if that) of the movie on the commercials and the rest of it were dumb teenager type jokes like kids painting genitalia on the football field or watching pornography in the hall and other dumb "pranks" on the last day of school. Definitely gonna start renting again before I buy because I definitely expected more due to the cast. Only gave it 2 stars because the fight scene was decent.

      I thought this was going to be one of the hilarious Summer released movies... *NOT SO MUCH!! I'm an "Enjoy Movies as Entertainment", but I'd say around 50% of this movie was simply nothing better than a "Pull My Finger - "F*RT" Joke!!! Only "kinda" funny, for the person getting their finger pulled. *(hahahaha... the 4-letter word for passing gas is considered cursing, lol)

      When the plot is actually two teachers meeting in the parking lot after school for a fist fight... what do you expect. How about setting a proper example for the children whom you are entrusted to educate. Charlie Day's mousy voice approaches aggravating by the end of the movie... but there are a few humorous moments sprinkled in to keep you from turning it off.

      This movie is another great comedy starring Ice Cube and of course Charlie Day. They definitely touch on how schools and kids today have changed and how crazy things could be, but they deliver that great message inside a non stop comedy that kept me laughing the entire movie. The return of Tracy Morgan is also clear in this movie...he's BACK!

      Hilarious Movie with a Great Cast

      Fist Fight was hilarious from start to finish. Each cast member plays the role you'd expect from them, but they do it with such commitment that they get laughs the whole way through. The best scene involves Charlie Day's character and his daughter. An over the top story leads to over the top laughs!

      The talent show performance was the best part

      This movie was rather average. I did not find it that funny throughout most of the film and Charlie Day's constant whining became very annoying. But, I stuck with it and was rewarded with perhaps the funniest scene ever in a movie. The talent show was worth the price!
