With a heart that won't quit, a stomach that won't stop gurgling and a self-sworn oath to protect his turf, he's Paul Blart: Mall Cop. Mild-mannered Paul Blart has always had huge dreams of becoming a State Trooper. Until then, he patrols the local mall as a security guard. With his closely cropped moustache, personal transporter and gung-ho attitude, only Blart seems to take his job seriously. All that changes when a team of thugs raids the mall and takes hostages. Untrained, unarmed and a super-size target, Blart has to become a real cop to save the day.
Poor Taste & Lacking Laughs

Expectations weren't high for Paul Blart Mall Cop yet I'm still surprised how much in bad taste the attempts at humour were. Kevin James plays a local security guard who is overweight, unfit, lacking confidence and hypoglycaemic amongst other limitations. Surely comedy can move beyond making fun of physical and medical conditions? A shopping mall should provide plenty of scope but its left for Blart to adopt a Die Hard finale to overcome a cast of extreme sports stars. Whom of course cannot act and put the final nail in the coffin to this film. A comedy without laughs is a truly sad experience, and here it is.

A standard film which followed a standard story line. I often enjoy films similar to this, although I feel they follow a very similar story line. This was one of those films, not particularly attention grabbling, fairly boring. I have tried to, unsuccessfully watch it twice now, infact as I write this, it is playing in the background. Personally - I'm not a fan, but you'll never know if you like it unless you give it a watch :)
