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. Forced jokes fall flat and anything interesting to say is lost in the lazy joke-telling.||2017 |
