Here Comes the Boom

(PG) ★★★☆☆

Scott Voss (Kevin James) is a burned-out high school biology teacher, a single man barely able to muster the gumption to ask out the school nurse (Salma Hayek). Their crumbling school needs $48,000 to save the longtime music teacher (Henry Winkler). Solution: Voss, who wrestled in college, enters mixed martial arts and makes it all the way to the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Las Vegas. Although it takes a while to get going, it’s actually all right.

Doc’s Visit

By Danny Axelrod

Entertainment legend Doc Severinsen is thanking me. The 85-year-old trumpet player, conductor and former bandleader of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson is thanking me for not mentioning his trademark colorful and complex wardrobe choices (oops!). In anticipation of his upcoming performances with the San Miguel Five at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, we have just enjoyed a pleasant chat about life, music and Mexico, his adopted country of retirement.
