QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A high school teacher takes up MMA fighting in order to win enough money to save his fellow teacher's job.
PLOT:
Scott Voss (KEVIN JAMES) is a high school biology teacher who isn't motivated to teach his students, including Malia (CHARICE) who's also in the music class taught by Marty Streb (HENRY WINKLER). When not hanging out with his harried chef brother, Eric (GARY VALENTINE), Scott spends his time hitting on school nurse Bella Flores (SALMA HAYEK), while also teaching an adult education class for immigrants like former Mixed Martial Arts fighter Niko (BAS RUTTEN) who wants to pass his citizenship test.

When Principal Betcher (GREG GERMANN) announces that budget cuts will result in Marty losing his job, Scott suddenly finds himself motivated to help. And after hearing that fighters in big MMA bouts can earn $10,000 even if they lose, Scott decides that's the route he'll take to earn the $48,000 it will take to save Marty's job. With Niko's help, Scott then learns what he can about such bouts before starting his professional MMA fighting career.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast and/or MMA fighting.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For bouts of MMA sports violence, some rude humor and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
