‘Fist Fight’ Star JoAnna Garcia Swisher Promises a ‘Lot of Heart’ in Ice Cube, Charlie Day Comedy (Video)

“It’s not a huge think piece, you just go there and have fun and enjoy,” the actress tells TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell

“Fist Fight” stars Ice Cube and Charlie Day as two school teachers who plan to fight each other in the parking lot — but JoAnna Garcia Swisher, who also stars in the film, promises the film doesn’t only provide laughs but has a lot of heart as well.

“This is a perfect time, this is one of those things — not to get too deep into the deeper meaning of the movie — but there is a lot of heart in this movie,” Swisher told TheWrap’s Stuart Brazell.

“The only way you can unleash these crazy comedians in a situation like this — which they actually did, sort of unleash them and film the whole process — is if you have that heart, so we have a good balance.

“It’s not a huge think piece, you just go there and have fun and enjoy,” she added.

The comedy, directed by Richie Keen, also stars Christina Hendricks, Tracy Morgan, Jillian Bell and Kumail Nanjiani. Swisher plays Day’s wife who is 10 months pregnant and is about to pop.

“Who could be more mismatched than Charlie Day and Ice Cube?” Brazell asked. “If Ice Cube told me he wanted to fight me, I would just move.”

“I would absolutely run for the hills,” added Swisher.

“Fist Fight” opens this Friday.
