Ron Strickland’s character is given a sack because of Campbell, which makes Strickland challenge Campbell to a fight after school classes. Don’t forget to check for teasers and official trailer that already gained huge popularity among the internet users.
Ice Cube and Charlie Day
Well, probably they really don’t make a perfect match. But the more you try to imagine them as pairing actors next to each other, the funnier it gets. Actually, the trailer is already described by most part of the viewers as “freakin’ hilarious” – the assigned on-screen duo of contrasting personalities created this effect. New Line Cinema is of the same opinion, that’s why they decided to participate in the release of this comedy. Charlie Day acts as an English teacher with mild manners. His colleague named Ice Cube challenges Charlie to a fist fight because of personal and professional misunderstanding.
Fist Fight is probably inspired by Three O’Clock High – a popular comedy movie of the 80-s. Three O’Clock High in its turn was inspired by High Noon – a western filmed in the 50-s. It was about a high school student that gets the bully offended. Then he does his best to avoid his bully, because a fist fight is already arranged for 3 o’clock after classes.
