“After school. Parking lot. It’s on.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.”

Neutral—It was an OKAY movie, BUT it could have been much better. Most of the jokes were lame (some even made me cringe)… to be honest. I was expecting better from Ice-Cube :l Oh that movie looked as if it was rushed.

Keith Watson, Slant
…Ugh. What a pestilential little picture is “Fist Fight.” …A comedy that traffics in those crude stereotypes, cheap laughs and boundless cynicism. …
Soren Andersen, The Seattle Times
…a ridiculously crude comedy… an unfunny, vulgar, offensive movie with no redeeming qualities…
Ted Baehr, Movieguide
