Ice Cube & Charlie Day Ready To Throw Down In 'Fist Fight'

Call it method acting.

The film, a teacher-centric spin on 1987's Three O'Clock High, stars Charlie Day and Ice Cube as high school teachers preparing for an after-school fist fight of epic proportions after Day's character gets Ice Cube's character fired.

Opening on the last day of school, "Fist Fight" is a vulgar, over-the-top, in-your-face raunchy comedy.

The phallic-heavy yuks take place on senior prank day, with Ice Cube's no-nonsense history teacher, Mr. Strickland, losing his cool with one of his students.

Professionals to the core, Day and Ice wanted to make sure the denouement was successful. Ice Cube has never looked so bored, delivering all of his lines in the same angry cadence (something the "Jump Street" movies used so well for comedic effect). The concept of a weakling pushover standing up to the big, bad, neighborhood bully in an empowering final scene has been done so many times in film that you could spend all day naming movies in which that occurs.

"Twelve to 14 hours of fighting". Ice Cube was Ice Cube-loud, violent, incendiary, and intimidating. Now I know nobody wants to get beat up, but who would rather spend $4,000 on laptops, possibly putting your family with an expensive baby on the way in severe debt, than get into a fight? By about by fourth day, everybody was pretty glad the weekend was coming around. He'd rather do illegal things than get beat up. Day's more accommodating Campbell is still trying to make E.E. Cummings relevant for kids who couldn't care less.

It was interesting, and more than a little inspiring, to watch the public outcry against the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education over the past couple of weeks - especially the online campaign in which, in response to DeVos' ill-informed attacks on America's supposedly failing public education system, people spoke fondly of their experiences in public schools. The creepy junior felons who make up the student body go viral with social media gossip about the fight.

Not to take away from these two (back on them shortly), but can't continue without mentioning Jillian Bell (22 Jumpstreet; Workaholics).

This is not a nice movie, and while its devil-may-care nastiness is occasionally bracing, it's just as often frustrating.

Who is Sasikala's Replacement, Edappadi K Palaniswami?
Over the past week, it had become increasingly clear that the people of the state didn't want her as their leader. Jayalalithaa in all her times of crises, right from the time of the late Chief Minister and AIADMK founder M.

If you've been wondering when you'd next see Tracy Morgan return to the big screen, wonder no more.

English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is in for one hell of a bad day. Plus the script and the premise were so good.

Jillian Bell in particular might be one of the most underrated comedian actors out there right now (comparing her to both other women and male comedians), who here plays a meth addicted teacher more interested in sexually hooking up with students than actually, you know, teaching. "I just love his style of comedy". Make no mistake. Bell's presence does not rely exclusively on the delivery of the writer's work.

Day and Cube aren't the only people in this high school who make the movie amusing as hell. Day did some solid body work in the beginning of the fight as well. "Boom! We need to create our own franchise!"

So, is there an after-credits scene in Fist Fight?

At some point, we have to stop falling for this (or at least I have to stop falling for this).

"I've been in a fist fight".

They'll have find the time to fit a sequel into their busy schedules. "The pic will play at 3,185 locations, with 2,300 of that number starting showtimes at 7 PM on Thursday".

"Of all the things I've done".
