Comedy directed by Richie Keen in which the story follows mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Charlie Day) who on the last day of the year is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line.
However, things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), by getting him fired so Strickland challenges Campbell 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 Campbell, needed.
