Synopsis: On the last day of school, two frazzled high school teachers make a date for a fist fight.

It's not an entirely unfamiliar premise (it's loosely - very loosely - based on the 1987 high-school comedy Three O'Clock High), but it gets off on the wrong foot by focusing nearly entirely on Campbell to the detriment of everyone else.

"You know, I'm not really a fighter anymore". Unfortunately, Fist Fight was conceived in 2013, written in 2014, shot in 2015, and is just now being released. I'm usually in Buckhead hanging out.

"You know, I'm, uh... I let it all out and then we went to work". Horrified and increasingly hysterical Andy discovers the whole school suddenly knows about the fight; everyone has an opinion, and other than running away, it's gonna happen. So that was exciting. So that's it for me. "True story", insisted Morgan. Ice Cube was Ice Cube-loud, violent, incendiary, and intimidating. "He said, 'Thank god I didn't get hit by a'". There were also too many zany situations that only had me rolling my eyes, not making me laugh like they were supposed to. For me it's "relax", and be yourself. But, I was wrong; big time. So it fit perfectly.

This leads to the main premise of the movie-the fist fight. Photo courtesy of Warner Bros.

Speaking of TV shows, the cast is made up of every great small-screen actor you can think of. The exhausted concept was too much to overcome, numerous jokes didn't land with the audience, and some of the parts seemed too out of place. But I understand the argument, and I support people who want to be seen and heard and recognized.

Bell: I do end up hugging more people than I should. Here is what I thought of this new comedy. What a pity it would be if they've run out of ideas. Eddie Murphy taught me that my second year on SNL. Well, when he tries to justify the fist fight as a way to call attention to problems at the school, nobody believes it. What do you prefer? Everyone in this cast has proven in other films and TV series that they're amusing, charming people who can do a lot when given the right material. To say more would spoil the funniest scene in the movie. And the movie never gets to the root of his anger.

See you at the movies! Because he was in my house. I was a little kid and John Hughes started coming into town. Which is kind of fun. Nice Guy who just wants to get along. You sort of like, get to live somewhere else and surround yourself with new friends. In the end, if it's about anything other than why insane people should not all be stuck in a school together, it's how there are significant pros and cons to both a violent approach and a strictly passive approach to challenges. I wanted to punch it. "It's a good workout", admitted Ice Cube, 47. "I thought it was cool and this is going to sound unusual but every time I was on or near a set I was like, 'This is where I should be.' It just lit me up in a way that other things didn't".

Twist in Rangers manager saga as Mark Warburton 'denies' resigning
When you get asked to come to a club like Rangers then it's for sure a hard decision to turn that down. Mark Warburton has resigned as manager of Rangers, the Scottish Premiership club said on Friday.

In fact, it would make more sense if the movie took place on the first day of school.

The movie also features Christina Hendricks, Tracy Morgan and Jillian Bell. Is he back? He'd been through a horrific accident. So... I'm glad he didn't tell me that.

Guys, stop. The talent show scene was already the worst part of About A Boy and Crazy Stupid Love.

Day: Yeah, she's busy. They're gonna have to fight it out after school, a task for which Andy is woefully unequipped. Director Richie Keen, who worked well with Day on several Sunny episodes, allows his star a privilege he denies other cast members: the chance to play someone recognizably human. He's just that good.

"We're so grateful to the film commission out here that's so great".

The result is a raunchy movie with Ice Cube, some John Hughes-style heart and even some social commentary.

"It really feels good to be back, but after the general response, you have to be amusing". The film isn't about telling a coherent and thoughtful story and it's at its best when it sticks to crude humor.
