Kicsit fapados, kicsit sántikál, kicsit primitív – de mítosz! Igazi mítosz. És nem a miénk, hanem az övék. Az amerikaiaké.
Az iskolák sehol a világon nincsenek biztonságban. De nem a vad tinédzserek vagy nem még vadabb túszszedők jelentik az igazi veszélyt: hanem a gazdasági megszorítások. Amikor egy békés természetű, lusta biosztanár (Kevin James) megtudja, hogy az igazgatóság spórolásra hivatkozva meg akarja szűntetni a zenekart, hogy elbocsáthassa a bohém zenetanárt (Henry Winkler), akcióba lép. Már csak azért is, mert azt reméli, így végre bevágódhat az iskolában dolgozó nővérkénél (Salma Hayek), akit eddig semmilyen ravasz udvarlási módszerrel sem tudott levenni a lábáról. Jobb híján indul egy utcai harcos versenyen, és bár hatalmas pofonokba fut bele, gyűlni kezd a pénz. A siker magával ragadja, és pár fura figura segítségével újabb meg újabb bunyókra jelentkezik: minden KO újabb bevételt jelent. Végül annyiszor fog padlót, hogy meghívják egy igazi, nagy versenyre: ha ott sikerül nyernie, megmenekül a zenekar.
Egy védtelen pedagógus a jó ügy érdekében szembeszáll a ketrecharc királyával.
Kicsit fapados, kicsit sántikál, kicsit primitív – de mítosz! Igazi mítosz. És nem a miénk, hanem az övék. Az amerikaiaké.

Sebastiaan "Bas" Rutten (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈbɑs ˈrɵtə(n)]; born 24 February 1965) is a Dutch-American actor and retired mixed martial artist, kickboxer, and professional wrestler. He was a UFC Heavyweight Champion, a three-time King of Pancrase world champion, and finished his career on a 22 fight unbeaten streak (21 wins, 1 draw). FightMetric wrote this when Rutten got inducted into the UFC Hall Of Fame: "FightMetric, the official statistics provider for the UFC, ran the numbers on Rutten's career. They back up the Dutchman's inclusion into the UFC Hall of Fame and then some. In the 4-hours, 27-minutes and 8-seconds he spent as a pro fighter, Rutten scored 13 knockdowns without getting dropped himself, his significant strike accuracy was 70.6%, the highest FightMetric has ever recorded, attempted a record 53 submissions and successfully swept his opponents a record 46 times." From 2007–2016, Rutten was the co-host of Inside MMA on AXS TV. As a professional fighter, one of his favorite tactics was the liver shot (both punch and kick), and he popularized its use in MMA. Rutten is known for his charisma and has capitalized on his celebrity status since retiring from fighting in 1999. He has worked as a color commentator in several MMA organizations, including Pride, and has appeared in numerous television shows, movies, and video games. He also coaches MMA and has authored several instructional materials.
Bas Rutten is a world-renowned mixed martial artist who has also made a name for himself outside the ring as an actor, host, and television personality.

Henry Franklin Winkler OBE (born October 30, 1945) is an American actor, comedian, director, producer, and author. He played the role of greaser Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli, the breakout character of the 1970s American sitcom Happy Days. He also starred as Sy Mittleman on Adult Swim's Childrens Hospital, and as Eddie R. Lawson on USA Networks's Royal Pains. Winkler also had notable guest-starring roles on Arrested Development as Barry Zuckerkorn and Dr. Saperstein on Parks and Recreation. In 2018, he began appearing as Gene Cousineau on the HBO comedy Barry. For his role on Happy Days, Winkler won two Golden Globe Awards and earned three Primetime Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. For Barry, Winkler won his first Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. He also was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role on The Practice and has won two Daytime Emmy Awards.
Henry Franklin Winkler was born on October 30, 1945, in Manhattan, New York. His parents, Ilse Anna Maria (Hadra) and Harry Irving Winkler, were Jewish immigrants who avoided the German Holocaust, moving to the US in 1939. His father was the president of an international lumber company while his mother worked alongside his father. Henry grew up with "a high level of low self-esteem." Throughout elementary school and high school, he struggled with academics. This was due to what he would later identify as dyslexia. His parents expected him to eventually work with them at the lumber company. However, Henry had other plans as he saw roles on stage as the key to his happiness. His acting debut came in the eighth grade when he played the role of Billy Budd in the school play of the same name. Following his graduation from McBurney High School, he was able to incorporate his learning disability and succeed in higher education. He received a Bachelor's degree from Emerson College in 1967 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Yale School of Drama in 1970. He later received an honorary PhD in Hebrew Literature in 1978 from Emerson College. Following college, his top priority was to become an actor. However, if this was unsuccessful, he wanted to become a child psychologist because of his deep interest in working with children. Like many other actors, he began his career by appearing in 30 commercials. His first major film role was in _The Lord's of Flatbush (1974)_ (qv) in which he played a member of a Brooklyn gang. After that, he was cast on a new ABC series which was set in the 1950s called _"Happy Days" (1974)_ (qv). He was given the role of high school dropout and greaser Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli. The character was seldom seen during the first few episodes as ABC initially feared he would be perceived as a hoodlum. However, the character became extremely popular with viewers, and the show's producers decided to give Fonzie a more prominent role in the series. Following this, the show's ratings began to soar, and Fonzie became a 1970s icon and the epitome of cool. His motorcycle, leather jacket, thumbs-up gesture, and uttering of the phrase "Aayyyy!" became television trademarks. The character became so popular that ABC considered renaming the series "Fonzie's Happy Days" but eventually decided against it. Unlike many other stars of the 1970s who rose to fame in a short period of time and developed "big heads," Henry managed to stay well grounded and avoided falling into this trap. He was said to be more polite and agreeable, even after his popularity soared. He remained on the series until its cancellation in 1984. In the mid-1980s, with his _"Happy Days" (1974)_ (qv) now behind him, Henry decided to change his focus toward producing and directing. He produced and directed several television shows and movies, most notably _"MacGyver" (1985)_ (qv) and _"Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" (1996)_ (qv). In the mid-1990s and early 2000s, he was able to re-establish himself with a younger generation of moviegoers and TV viewers, appearing in the popular films, _Scream (1996)_ (qv) and _The Waterboy (1998)_ (qv) and on shows such as _"The Practice" (1997)_ (qv) and _"Arrested Development" (2003)_ (qv). In addition to his movie and film credits, Henry is a well accomplished author. Between 2003 and 2007, he co-authored 12 children's novels with 'Lin Oliver' (qv). The series is called "Hank Zipzer, the World's Greatest Underachiever." The books are based on his early struggles with dyslexia, and they sold more than 2-million books in that time. Off-screen, Henry has been married since 1978 to 'Stacey Winkler' (qv) (nee Weitzman) with whom he has three children. Together, they are actively involved with various children's charities. In 1990, they co-founded the Children's Action Network (CAN), which provides free immunization to over 200,000 children. He is also involved with the Annual Cerebral Palsy Telethon, the Epilepsy Foundation of America, the annual Toys for Tots campaign, the National Committee for Arts for the Handicapped, and the Special Olympics. In September 2003, he suffered a personal setback when his fellow actor and friend of nearly 25 years, 'John Ritter' (qv), unexpectedly passed away. Henry was on the set of _"8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter" (2002)_ (qv) that day for a guest appearance and was one of the last people to talk to Ritter.

Kevin James (eredeti nevén Kevin George Knipfing) 1965. április 26-án született New Yorkban. Amerikai színész, komikus és producer.
A kosárlabda egy olyan labdajáték, melyet két ötfős csapat játszik. Mindkét csapatnak van egy-egy a pályán egymással szemben 3,05 méter magasan elhelyezett lyukas kosara (vagy hálós fémgyűrűje). A csapatok célja a szabályszerű játék során az, hogy a labdát az ellenfél kosarába dobják, illetve hogy megakadályozzák a másik csapatot ugyanebben. A találatokért a csapatok pontokat kapnak, és az a csapat nyer, amelyik a játékidő alatt több pontot gyűjt. A játéknak nemzetközileg elfogadott szabályai vannak, de ezeknek a szabályoknak több eltérő ága létezik kontinensek, korcsoportok és nemek szerint. Elsősorban teremsport, de szabadtéri változatai is ismertek (például az utcai kosárlabda, azaz a streetball). Ezeknek teljesen eltérőek a szabályai, mint az amerikai Nemzeti Kosárlabda Szövetség (angolul National Basketball Association, NBA) vagy a Nemzetközi Kosárlabda-szövetség (franciául Fédération Internationale de Basketball, FIBA) előírásai szerint Európában is leginkább játszott változatnak. A kosárlabdát sebessége és variációs lehetőségei a nézői számára is rendkívül látványossá teszik, ezért napjainkra az egyik legnépszerűbb sportággá vált világszerte. Az NBA eltérő szabályokkal rendelkezik, mint az általunk megszokott kosárlabda. Az NBA csapataiban vegyesen vannak az egész világból játékosok. Az NBA az egyéni játékról és a látványos (szabályokkal nem ütköző) trükkökről, dobásokról és nem utolsósorban zsákolásokról híres, míg a kosárlabda öreg kontinensen játszott változatára inkább a csapatjáték, az összjáték jellemző.
Salma Hayek Jiménez de Pinault, születési nevén: Salma del Carmen Hayek Jiménez (Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, 1966. szeptember 2. –) mexikói színházi, film- és televíziós színésznő. A Frida Kahloról szóló Frida című 2002-es film címszerepéért Oscar-díjra jelölték. Apja Sami Hayek Domínguez libanoni származású politikus és kereskedő, anyja Diana Jiménez operaénekes. Kiskorától kezdve az egyesült államokbeli Louisianában tanult és Texasban élt. Mexikóba visszatérve nemzetközi kapcsolatokat tanult az Universidad Iberoamercianán. Egyetemi tanulmányait – szülei akarata ellenére – félbeszakította, mivel inkább a színészkedés után vágyódott. Első szerepét az Aladdin és a csodalámpa című színházi komédiában játszotta. Egy televíziórendező fedezte fel a filmek számára, amikor felajánlott a fiatal Salmának egy szerepet az Egy új hajnal c. teleregényben. Lenyűgöző szépségének köszönhetően a második szerepét a Teresa c. teleregény főszerepében kapta meg. A Teresa egész Mexikóban nagy nézettségre tett szert.
One of Hollywood's most dazzling leading actresses, Salma Hayek was born on September 2, 1966, in the oil boomtown of Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Hayek has freely admitted that she and her brother, Sami, were spoiled rotten by her well-to-do businessman father, Sami Hayek Dominguez, and her opera-singing mother, Diana Jiménez Medina. Her surname is from her paternal grandfather, who was Lebanese. After having seen _Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)_ (qv) in a local movie theatre, Salma decided she wanted to become an actress. At 12, she was sent to the Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she pulled pranks on the nuns by setting their clocks back three hours. She was soon expelled. Only after attending Mexico City's Universidad Iberoamericana did she feel ready to pursue acting seriously. She soon landed the title role in _"Teresa" (1989)_ (qv), a hugely successful soap opera which earned her the star status in her native Mexico. However, anxious to make films and to explore her talent and passion, Hayek left both _"Teresa" (1989)_ (qv) and Mexico in 1991. Heartbroken fans spread rumors that she was having a secret affair with Mexico's president and left to escape his wife's wrath. At long last, Salma made her way to Los Angeles. The 24 year old actress approached Hollywood with naďve enthusiasm, and quickly learned that Latin actresses were, if at all, typecast as the mistress maid or local prostitute. By late 1992, Hayek had landed only bit parts. She appeared on _"Street Justice" (1991)_ (qv), _"The Sinbad Show" (1993)_ (qv), _"Nurses" (1991)_ (qv), and as a sexy maid on the HBO series _"Dream On" (1990)_ (qv). She also had one line in the 'Allison Anders' (qv) film _Mi vida loca (1993)_ (qv). Feeling under-appreciated by Anglo filmmakers, Hayek vented her frustrations on comedian 'Paul Rodriguez (I)' (qv)'s late-night Spanish-language talk show in 1992. 'Robert Rodriguez (I)' (qv) and his producer wife 'Elizabeth Avellan' (qv) happened to be watching and were immediately smitten with the intelligent, opinionated young woman. He soon gave her her big break--to star opposite 'Antonio Banderas' (qv) in the now cult classic _Desperado (1995)_ (qv), which put her on Hollywood's map. The moviegoers proved to be as dazzled with Hayek as he had been. After her break, she was cast again by Rodriguez to star in his _From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)_ (qv). Although her vampy role opposite 'George Clooney' (qv) and 'Quentin Tarantino' (qv) was a small one, it was a good credit to her box office name. Hayek's first star billing came later that year with _Fools Rush In (1997)_ (qv) opposite _"Friends" (1994)_ (qv) actor 'Matthew Perry (I)' (qv). The film was a modest hit, and Hayek continued to rise her star in both commercial and artistic films such as: _Breaking Up (1997)_ (qv) with an unknown 'Russell Crowe' (qv); _54 (1998)_ (qv) about the rise and fall of the legendary New York club; _Dogma (1999)_ (qv), playing the muse in a somewhat odd comedy co-starring 'Matt Damon' (qv) and 'Chris Rock (I)' (qv); _In the Time of the Butterflies (2001) (TV)_ (qv), the small artistic film which won Hayek an ALMA award as best actress; and the 1999 summer blockbuster _Wild Wild West (1999)_ (qv). Her production company "Ventanarosa" produced the 1999 Mexican feature film _El coronel no tiene quien le escriba (1999)_ (qv), which was shown at the Cannes Film Festival and selected as Mexico's official Oscar entry for best foreign film. The new millennium started out quietly around Salma as she was preparing to produce and star in her dream role, that of 'Frida Kahlo' (qv), the legendary Mexican painter whom Salma had been admiring her entire life and whose story she wanted to bring to the big screen ever since her arrival in Hollywood. It finally happened in 2002. _Frida (2002)_ (qv), co-produced by Hayek, was a beautifully made film overflowing with passion and enthusiasm, with terrific performances from Salma and 'Alfred Molina' (qv) as Kahlo's cheating husband "Diego Rivera". On the side was an entourage of stars including 'Antonio Banderas' (qv), 'Ashley Judd' (qv), 'Geoffrey Rush' (qv), 'Edward Norton (I)' (qv) and 'Valeria Golino' (qv). The picture was a hit and was nominated for six Oscars, including best actress for Hayek, who became the first Latin actress to be nominated in the category, and won the awards for make-up and its brilliant original score by 'Elliot Goldenthal' (qv). Hayek established herself as the serious actress that she is and, in the same year, expanded her horizons, directing _The Maldonado Miracle (2003) (TV)_ (qv), which was shown at the Sundance Film festival. In 2003, she starred in the final of Rodriguez's "Desperado" trilogy _Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003)_ (qv), again opposite Banderas, and has just finished _After the Sunset (2004)_ (qv) opposite 'Pierce Brosnan' (qv) and _Ask the Dust (2006)_ (qv) opposite 'Colin Farrell (I)' (qv). Both are scheduled for release in early 2005. In the works are 'Robert Altman (I)' (qv)'s "Paint" and _Bandidas (2006)_ (qv) in which she will star with her friend 'Penélope Cruz' (qv).
