Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
Once it gets going and commits to its time-worn inspirational formula, it's not half-bad.

Boxoffice Magazine - Amy Nicholson
Like James in the ring, it doesn't pack a lot of power, but it comes out swinging and sweats for applause.
50
Boston Globe - Janice Page
Kevin James's latest comedy doesn't promise any bing or bang, only boom. Take it at its word.
42
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
A cloddish, harmlessly drecky comedy from the Sandler factory of crude mush.
40
Variety - Unnamed
Hands of stone meet heads of air in Here Comes the Boom, a sports story so daffy it may as well star Kevin James.
