Forced humour derails what could have been a very funny film.
|I would like to say that I don’t understand the thought process behind Fist Fight, but the problem is, I do. It’s loosely based on the ‘80s comedy Three O’Clock High, but switches the students and teachers around to make a social commentary on today’s education system. That idea should work, but the execution does not. Too many jokes fall flat and anything interesting to say is lost in the lazy joke-telling.||2017 |
