Here Comes the Boom
(2012)

SHORT VERSION:
Scott eventually gets a fight on a UFC show against the dangerous Ken Dietrich, and with just $6,000 left to earn, he knows that he can rest easy now, for he will get $10,000 if he were to lose.

However, the night before the fight, Bella calls him up to tell him that Assistant Principal Elkins was arrested earlier in the day for embezzling money from the school, and he had been doing it for years, hence why the school was financially strapped. What’s worse, he had already squandered every penny Scott had earned up to this point. Scott knows now that he must beat Dietrich and claim the winner’s purse of $50,000 or else all of his efforts will have been for nothing.

Before the fight, Bella and the school band show up to support Scott. Scott perseveres against Dietrich’s onslaught, and in the third and final round, he manages to knock Dietrich senseless long enough to get the victory by knockout. Bella comes down to the octagon and kisses him. The school’s extracurricular activities are saved, and days later, Scott’s trainer Niko passes his citizenship test and is sworn in as a U.S. citizen.

LONG VERSION:
Scott (Kevin James) eventually gets a fight on a UFC show against the dangerous Ken Dietrich (Krzysztof Soszynski), and with just $6,000 left to earn, he knows that he can rest easy now, for he will get $10,000 if he were to lose.

However, the night before the fight, Bella (Salma Hayek) calls him up to deliver some horrible news: Assistant Principal Elkins (Mookie Barker) was arrested earlier in the day for embezzling money from the school, and he had been doing it for years, hence why the school was financially strapped. What’s worse, he had already squandered every penny Scott had earned in his previous fights. Scott knows now that he must defeat Dietrich and claim the winner’s purse of $50,000 or else all of his efforts will have been for nothing.

As Scott is preparing to make his way out to the octagon, he notices that his entrance song is being sung differently. He and Marty (Henry Winkler) go out into the aisle to find the school band playing his song above the entranceway, with Malia (Charice) singing, and Bella is with them. Bella comes down to Scott and explains that she had put in a call to Joe Rogan (himself) asking for him to bring them all in for the fight, and since he already knew of Scott’s noble crusade, he gladly obliged them.

In the fight, Scott barely manages to survive the first two rounds. Before the third and final round begins, Scott admits to Marty that he doesn’t think he can take any more punishment from Dietrich, but Marty tells Scott that their students have witnessed complete resolve in the face of a difficult situation through watching him, and he therefore has given them inspiration, which is what a teacher is supposed to give to their students, and he declares to Scott that he is his hero for all he has done. Moved by Marty’s words, Scott decides to continue on.

As the final round is underway, Dietrich succeeds in locking Scott in an armbar despite Scott’s best efforts to avoid getting it put on him. However, rather than tap out, Scott digs deep inside himself and finds the strength to counter it. He then lifts Dietrich high up off of the mat and slams him down hard, knocking him senseless long enough to get the victory by knockout. As Scott celebrates, Bella comes down to the octagon, and she and Scott kiss through the cage.

Some days later, Principal Betcher (Greg Germann) – who was initially no fan of Scott or what he was doing to raise the money – personally thanks Scott for getting the school out of the red, and days later, Scott – along with Bella, Marty, and Malia – happily watches as his trainer Niko (Bas Rutten) is sworn in as a U.S. citizen, having passed his citizenship test.
