Fist Fight

After school. Parking lot. It’s on.


Fist Fight
On the last day of the year, a mild-mannered high school English teacher is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. Things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses a much tougher and deeply feared colleague, who challenges him to an old-fashioned fist fight after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and the English teacher, needed. The critics were not knocked out.

T. Durgin quote iconThere’s enough that works in Fist Fight to make up for the parts that don’t work. Again, I’m no prude, but there wasn’t any reason to make the dialogue SO unrelentingly profane.
