Fist Fight, a movie review

A movie review: By Lee Sonogan

(2017) 1h31min/Comedy


Campbell: Teachers can’t fight!

Strickland: We’re gonna handle our differences like real men.

Campbell: What differences?

Strickland: You got a job and I don’t! That’s the fucking difference!

IMDB describes the movie as when one school teacher unwittingly causes another teacher’s dismissal, he is challenged to an after-school fight. Actor, Charlie Day and director Richie Keen worked together on FX/FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Everything you see in the trailer and a little more, including the full fight with Charlie day and Ice Cube.

This is the first film to be directed by Richie Keen. With a budget of 25 million dollars, the movie made a profit of $41 million at the box office. The movie also stars Ice Cube, Tracy Morgan, Jilian Bell and Dean Norris.

Comedy at its most average. Charlie Day does create some It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in some scenes. Overall, a lot of the scenes seemed rushed. It does have the skills to make you laugh but lose interest in it waiting for the final Fistfight. The ending according to Ice Cube, the actual fight sequence took 8 days to shoot. The imagery looks epic with an entire school surrounding them during the last part of the movie. I recommend this movie to people who have time to kill and wanna see an over the top comedy based in a high school.
