Critics Consensus: Fist Fight boasts a surplus of comedic muscle but flails lazily, and far too few of its jokes land with enough force to register.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fist Fight is a raunchy comedy about two teachers (Charlie Day and Ice Cube) who agree to have a fight on the last day of school. Although it's played for laughs, the movie's violence is surprisingly intense: During the big fight, both teachers are knocked unconscious (one with a fire extinguisher), crashing into and break a car's windshield, and get other terrible-looking injuries. But they both walk away seemingly mostly uninjured. In the "very iffy messages" department, several characters tell a man who's reluctant to fight that he should "man up" and not be a "little b---h" or a "p---y"; once he's been in the fight, everyone seems to regard him as courageous and more mature. There's plenty of other strong language, including "s--t," "f--k," "ass," "hell," "damn," "bulls--t," and "motherf---ker." A guidance counselor leers at male students and calls them "fine"; she ultimately hooks up with a graduating student, and the movie implies it's OK for them to get together because he's "not a student anymore." In a running joke, a student masturbates in the bathroom; nothing sensitive is visible, but he talks graphically about "finishing." A quick shot from a porn movie shows naked breasts. Both students and teachers smoke pot at school; a teacher also buys drugs from a student and plants them on another teacher, and a teacher jokes about buying and using meth. Apple products are featured very prominently.
