"Here Comes The BOOM" film review

The husband and I went to Prince Music Theater in Philadelphia Tuesday night to see the premier of  "Here Comes The Boom". We were supposed to be there before six, traffic was slow getting out of New Jersey into Philadelphia. Then there was the parking lot, slow too-  I wanted to say"Here take the keys" we are late to the attendant!

We made our way over to the theater, and saw people being turned away since the theater was full. I know I was late, but was holding out hope. We were let in (I had reserved seats), but our seats were taken since we were late!!! Being late is not good. The nice people I had the reserved seats with found us two seats together. Thank you to them.

The Temple Band was playing live on the stage, just as we sat down, they were done playing. Sorry I missed that.

But then,
 Luckily we were seated just in time... Kevin James appeared on the stage. Yep, Kevin James on the stage in the same room as we were.  He introduced the movie and the audience cheered!

The movie is rolling, the sound is filling the room, no time to get settled in our seats, just watch the film.  It started out good, got better, and better, and better.

The film is about a Biology teacher (Kevin James) and his teaching methods, his lateness to work, and the school nurse he has asked out many times-always with a  "no" reply.

The school is in financial trouble, budget cuts are on the table. His job is safe, but the music department is on the budget cut list. What does Biology have to do with Music, I'm not really sure, but the film is more about people, friends, and human nature to help others.

Here take a look:

He has a plan to save the music department, at least he thinks he does. The story is really moving, it makes you think what could you do if you really tried.

 He ends up  in the ring showing his mixed martial arts skills, earning money for the school budget. How does a biology teacher become involved with martial arts? What happens to the music department, and does she finally say yes?

"Here Comes The Boom" gets an A+, thumbs up, 5 stars, and whatever other rating movies get that are awesome.

Go see it this weekend.

Disclosure: I was access to the film in order to write this review. The comments and views are my own.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
