Fist Fight

Like most fist fights in real life, this 1.5 Icee movie (out of 5) should never have happened. In fact, the only reason it even received a 1.5 Icee rating is because the last 15 minutes or so were pretty funny. Unfortuately the movie is an hour and a half long and so by the time you get to that part anything even relatively good will seem hilarious compared to what you’ve been watching.

Why am I so down on this? Well, it’s pretty simple. Until the end it’s just really not funny.  Is it crude? Yes. Is it a bad concept? Yes. I mean, do we really a need a movie about an angry black man trying to beat up a wimpy white man right now?  Not that we ever need that, but especially in today’s society this type of movie is just in bad taste. I wonder how much money they had to throw at Ice Cube to even be in it?

As I mentioned previously, the movie does pick up in a hilarious way during the last 15 minutes or so. Did they switch writers? Directors? I don’t know but at least it ended up on a decent note.  The movie more than earns its R-rating with the consistently foul language, some “on a laptop” nudity and rude content throughout.  I know that some people find that stuff funny, but I bet even they won’t like it in this movie.  It’s just… not… funny.  Until the end.

There are a few outtakes as the credits start and a short scene (not worth staying for) after the credits.  Do yourself a favor and just skip this one.  This fight never should have been sanctioned.


Fist Fight Trailer #2

Here’s the second trailer for this movie, which looks really funny.  I just hope it’s as good as it looks. It comes out on Feb 17h, just after Valentine’s Day.  Good timing??

This movie looks hilarious! Now normally I wouldn’t start out with a line like that for a movie with this appearance. I’d say something like, “I don’t like stupid-funny movies” or something else snooty like that. However, this one actually looks genuinely funny.  Be warned, the trailer does have some language in it, but if that doesn’t bother you, be prepared to laugh.  It comes out on Feb 17th.
