I watched the best movie I’ve seen in a while yesterday, “Here Comes the Boom”, starring Kevin James and Henry Winkler. The screening was followed by an interview with the stars and “The Moms” (www.themoms.com). What a powerful message in the movie….. I love it when movies teach and inspire you to be a better you and make a difference in the world. I laughed, I cried, and I was inspired to take on the world after watching this film.
Basically, a high school teacher who’s a slacker (Kevin James), is inspired to save the job of a music teacher whose position is threatened by budget cuts (Henry Winkler) and who’s wife is about to have a baby. The magic of this music teacher is he inspires his students with his own love for music to see that every person has their own musical note to play in the grand symphony of life. What you see through the course of the movie is the one who is really saved is Kevin James’ character, who regains his passion for life when he tries to save the job of his colleague through mixed martial arts competitions (this is hysterical). Through the course of the movie you witness how one person’s passion ignites another person’s passion, which ignites another person’s passion. Passion is in fact contagious, transformative and affects everyone for the better.
This is the message of the movie, which I felt honored to have the unique opportunity to attend and see my childhood crush “The Fonz” front stage and center. My passion is saving lives through the media, and my hope is that one day we will all unite to save lives through the media one person at a time. It is my hope that it occurs in a similar way to the message of this movie, that one person’s passion can ignite others to save lives, and surprise, miracles happen and new worlds and old worlds are created and saved.
Thanks Prime Time Parenting for showing me the power of mommies and that when we all unite with a similar passion we make a difference, to our children, to our communities and to the world at large. And perhaps, maybe equally as important, everyone can have a really fun time as well.
