You know, Ice Cube does really well on films in which he stars opposite an actor who can deliver high-energy foolery - Chris Tucker, Mike Epps, Kevin Hart... you get it. And now Charlie Day, seemingly a bit subdued in the trailer. But bet on some of that "Always Sunny In Philadelphia," "Pacific Rim," "Bad Bosses" crazy coming through his character as he is forced to face down Ice Cube's character. Yeah. You read right. How else would they get to the point of a "Fist Fight."
Ice Cube and Charlie Day star as high school teachers prepared to solve their differences the hard way in the comedy "Fist Fight," directed by Richie Keen ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia") - in theaters February 17!
On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.
Oh damn, Tracy Morgan's in this! Definitely on the Ice Cube crazy co-star list, too. See you after school in the parking lot, punk. Hahaaa!
