Hey fellow fight nerds! It’s contest time! Up for grabs are a few copies of “Here Comes the Boom” on DVD! If you have not seen the movie yet, former college wrestler Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a 42-year-old biology teacher in a failing high school. When cutbacks threaten to cancel the music program and lay off its teacher (Henry Winkler), Scott begins to raise money by moonlighting as a mixed martial arts fighter. Everyone thinks Scott is crazy — most of all the school nurse, Bella (Salma Hayek). But in his quest, as Scott becomes more and more committed to fighting for the students, he becomes a sensation that rallies the entire school.
The Blu-ray and DVD bonus features include 18 deleted scenes, a gag reel and “Here Comes the Cast,” a featurette on the star studded cast. The Blu-ray also exclusively includes an additional five behind-the-scenes featurettes: “The Pros” gives fans a look at the real MMA fighters that appear in the film; “The Three Amigos” showcases the camaraderie of Mr. Voss’ training team – Rutten, Winkler and DellaGrotte – and the fun they had on set; “Back To School” is a peek at Winkler showing off his classroom; “Learning How To Fight” takes a look at James getting schooled in the world of MMA; and “Gino Vs. Richie” chronicles a fun on-set challenge.
