A single, albeit overweight, parent, Paul Blart lives a middle-classed lifestyle with his daughter, Maya, in New Jersey. After being mocked at in school, and having been unsuccessful to get employment with the local police services, he gets hired at a Mall as a security guard. He is attracted to a mall employee, Amy, but his attempts to woo her are foiled by a pen salesman. His continuing efforts to date Amy are hilarious as he must first adapt himself to cell phones and text messaging, which he attempts to do with his pal, Vijays daughters cell-phone. Things get complicated after he is instructed to train a new security guard - who has an agenda of his own - that will end up changing Pauls life forever.

We have taken some photos of "Paul Blart: Mall Cop". They represent actual movie quality.
I thought this movie was rather stupid. The only reason I went to seeit was because my local shopping mall was in it. The Burlington Malldid great. Fun fact, I was shopping there during the filming over thesummer, and one of the crew members was wearing a Yankees T-shirt. Bearin mind, the Burlington Mall is firmly inside Red Sox territory. So Itold the crew member "Yankees suck!"Even if I was rather disgruntled over the crew member's choice ofattire, I must admit the movie was rather funny. I loved the HelloKitty Band-Aid. I wonder how they did the special effects. For example,in one scene, the glass of an elevator gets broken. I wonder if theyreally broke the elevator glass?
Funny Funny Funny!! Yes it was that funny. I am slightly biased becauseI just think Kevin James is hilarious. I was gutted when King of Queenscame to an end. This film is short and sweet, which is good for mebecause I do tend to have the attention span of a nat (I'm assumingthey have little or no attention span but I'm sure you get my point).Towards the end I found myself repeatedly turning to my friend insurprise (to her surprise) and saying 'I was not expecting that!!'. Ifyou're looking for laughs a plenty (albeit a little silly) and you likeAdam Sandler humour (this film is made by his or the production companyHappyMadison which makes a lot of Adam Sandler films) you must go seethis.
STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning** Sunday Night * Monday Morning The titular Paul Blart (Kevin James) is an overweight, goof pronesecurity guard at an American shopping mall who is disrespected by mostpeople, with the exception of Amy (Jayma Mays) a pretty new girl hedevelops a crush on. But he gets a chance to be the hero of the daywhen the mall falls under siege from a gang demanding a ransom, wherehis bumbling heroism sets out to foil the terrorists.This probably isn't the kind of thing I'd generally give much attentionto, but everyone needs to watch something a bit light every now andagain and this fit the bill perfectly. As others have commented, thetubbier leading man has always been delegated to the comic buffoonrole, most notably the late John Candy, whom lead star James matchesquite well indeed. He gets a great deal of his laughs from howlaughably over the top the script requires him to go at times and makesuch a prat of himself and indeed how silly the script itself is inplaces, in amongst a lot of the more slapstick and pratfalls kind ofstuff.This is simply gentle, light, family entertainment that you couldcomfortably sit around and watch as a family, which is a type of comedythat's becoming less and less nowadays and so you can appreciate thatbit more. ***
Okay guys Hollywood is just mass producing garbage! Paul Blart is anabsolute loser, I mean he just was piece of shi*. There was really nosatire that made me feel, remotely sorry for him. I wish I could havewrote the end of this story, because really anyone that patheticdoesn't deserve to live. I feel like this was Kevin James biography,but his career was disguised as a mall cop. They both are horrid atwhat they do and get some much recognition. HUGE WASTE OF MONEY ANDTIME. Thank you for your timeCarl the critic
The biggest negative I have about this movie is that the treatment of both the police and the bad guys was something out of "Home Alone" -- as if the movie was aimed squarely at 8 year olds. Basically a mall cop takes on some blazingly incompetent villains while some blazing incompetent police are helpless to act.Still, I laughed hard quite a number of times throughout this movie. Someone behind this movie had clearly been watching a lot of Rambo movies, too.Basically it's good and funny provided you can overlook the "Home Alone" aspect. But, you know, it's rated PG, and appropriately so. I think the movie could have been better and more exciting while still bringing the laughs had the bad guys been just a little less incompetent but then I'd have probably gotten it rated PG-13 that way.So, 4 stars for plenty of laughs, cheesy or not.
It's cute and clichÃ© plot may be good for five, six, and seven yearolds, but for adults and teenagers my age. We want something a littlemore mature or funnier. It's a good kids movie, though the kid level init could really be toned down a little bit. I'm surprised Kevin Jamesgot the role of Paul Blart. I was sure that John Goodman would havethis in the bag."Mall Cop" seems a lot like a 90s nostalgia movie. A movie that someonelike John Candy or Chris Farley could have made back when they werestill with us.The movie revolves around the life of single dad Paul Blart (KevinJames). His dream of becoming a police officer is jeopardized by hislow blood sugar. He trains to become one, but gets rejected whencollapsing. He is raising his teenage daughter, living with his mother.To prove to them he is worthy of a real job, he gets the closest job hecan get to a police officer, a mall cop.There he meets Amy Anderson (Jayma Mays) who works at a kiosk called"UnbeWEAVEable". After numerous attempts and fails to amuse her, themall becomes invaded by crooks who plan to rob the mall. They take Amyand store her in a place where they are keeping various other hostages.It's up to Paul Blart to take the down the criminals (in comical waysof course) and save the mall.Despite the film's overwhelming supply of fat jokes it isn't an awfulmovie. A harmless kids movie, just for kids. Thats what brings it down,because I don't really think adults will laugh to really at this. Ifthey do, their sense of humor must be far stretched than mine. Toconclude, it's harmless, made for kids, and ignored by adults.Starring: Kevin James, Jayma Mays, Keir O'Donnell, Peter Gerety, BobbyCannavale, and Adam Ferrara. Directed by: Steve Carr.
The shot of Blart quietly crawling into a hostage situation inside the mall's bank and walking through a roped line is a moment of absurd grace, only it's shot with the vulgarity of a Crash Test Dummies commercial.
This review is from: Paul Blart: Mall Cop (DVD) Funny for the entire family. Not a Hangover but something the kids will enjoy along with the family.
"I just love this guy," James says of Paul Blart in the movie's production notes. For the sake of humanity I hope and pray that barely anyone else shares his affection.
To call this Kevin James comedy fatuous might be misinterpreted as an attack on the star's girth -- so how about inane, tepid, lazy, puerile, phony, and unfunny?
I saw the trailers, enjoyed King of Queens, and thought I'd enjoy thisKevin James jaunt as a Saturday afternoon film. A film which should bequietly enjoyable and give a few laughs.What I watched was mind-numbing garbage. Whilst I didn't expectanything too original, I didn't think I'd get such unoriginal, factoryfodder. There was nothing to be enjoyed, and almost everything was tooexpected. The little that was marginally original was creepy. I feltlike screaming to the love interest, don't go any near that stalker ashe zoomed in on CTV then offered a lift on his mop-mobile. Would anyonesay yes if a creepy guy offered to put his arms around you on hisSegway when you just met the guy; especially one with stalkertendencies? The scene in the bar that followed was just as painful towatch, and even more reason for the love interest to run a mile.The writers seemed to forget that if you're going to create formulamovies, with a loser you need the audience to like, that there has tobe something positive and likable about the character. I can't thinkabout anything redeeming during the first twenty minutes. The writerstook too many liberties with the audience and just presumed, 'Hey, thisis an actor everyone likes, we don't need to make any effort in thescript to support this.' This is not Kevin James greatest moment. Thebox office receipts merely show how successful good advertising can be,no matter how bad the product is.
Poor Paul Blart...he is overweight. He also suffers from severe hypoglycemia, and when his blood sugar falls too far he passes out - boom! His one goal is to become a state highway trooper. When that falls through (again) he goes back to his job as a mall security officer. Blart is serious about his job, maybe too serious. In any case, he is unaware that a gang of criminals dressed as santa's helpers are out to steal the entire mall's take on the evening of Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year. The entire mall is cleared of customers, except for a few hostages the crooks have kept as insurance. Blart is NOT going to let this go down on HIS watch in HIS mall. So the lovable, overweight Blart is faced with the challenge of his lifetime. Will he fold like a cream puff under the pressure or will he find that he is made of sterner stuff?You can probably fill in all the blanks, but I found that there are some laugh-out-loud funny parts, and while the show is far-fetched and quite silly, it is also endearing.4 stars.
You'd better shop around%u2014you could probably find an unfunny comedy with an unappealing hero and clumsily shot action choreography for much less than retail price. Maybe the straight-to-DVD bin?
Kevin James creates a lovable buffoon in this movie. The mustache works. His physical comedy works. I really feel sorry for the character because he gets dumped on by life. He flunked the state trooper exam because, he falls asleep when his blood sugar gets too low. Fairly inoffensive fat jokes fill the movie. For example, his boss says to him basically watch it, you make a big target. Paul Blart replies, "I know." Some the gags work. The scene where Bart band-aids his small cut is a very funny spoof of the Rambo scene where Rambo sews up his own gaping wound. The attempted slide behind the pillar and then the scoots to get the rest of the way to behind the pillar is very funny as well. James is a surprisingly agile physical actor.The plot of the movie is just a little strange and very formulaic. There are no surprises here and Kevin James has most of the jokes. The pathos at the start is laid on so thick that it dragged down the plot. The criminals are gymnastic wonders and not very believable. The movie never rises above itself like "Revenge of the Nerds" or "MeatBalls" with the message that all misfits or nerds should hang together. The crime is averted and the boy gets the girl. That's it. The movie is ok if you have very low expectations. Definitely rent and don't buy. I hope James gets into better movies.
If you're in the mood for a movie that makes no sense, is completelyunbelievable and dumb, dumb and DUMBER...This is the movie for you. Itdoesn't even TRY to make sense so I guess the writers and producers gotwhat they wanted. Consider this a live action cartoon with a couple ofamusing incidents. But a couple of amusing incidents do not make amovie. Good thing I got a free rental on this one. If I had paid to seeit I would have asked for a refund. The leading lady looks and actslike a store dummy in a window and acts like one. The best that couldbe said of the other (actors?) is that they take direction. Kevin Jamesshould stay away from the big screen.
I've just finished watching this movie and as always I refuse to givetoo much away on the plot and characters so here is my simple review.The good points - Love him or hate Kevin James seems to have a JohnCandy kind of feel about him of whom I was a huge fan, loved thepremise you can't go wrong with a shopping mall.The bad points - Too thin, this movie was just too thin the charactersjust weren't engaging enough and the few laughs you get is of Kevinmaking a fool of himself, it's been done so many times before butbetter it's all just a bit clichÃ©d.Some people might love this movie but I feel most will be like me andcome away from watching a comedy feeling that you haven't laughedenough.Distinctly average.Try and enjoy if you do watch it though.
after seeing the previews i thought this would be a very funny movie but missed it at the movies so i bought it and at first in the beginning half of the movie was the better half it had a few very funny parts mosts were just becuase you felt so bad for the guy. the second half was more dry humor with the typical falls and trips and misses i thin this would of been soo much better if two things happened one the cops and bad guys were so lame and totally unbelievable ive seen better bad guys on disney movies. and two there def should have been a few more flirt scenes between bart and amey because there was only one flirt scene and he ends up crying over her which seemed kind of creaper so all in all ide give it no more than a 3 like i said this is def aimed toward the younger crowd between 7 and 15
This review is from: Paul Blart: Mall Cop (DVD) This movie is one of our favorites. My husband ends up belly laughing every time he watches it. And the kids just love it too.
I like Kevin James. I liked his role in the King of Queens and in Hitchand looked forward to finally seeing him a starring role in a film. Iliked him enough to go see the movie in the theater, mainly becausethere was nothing much else to see at the theater at the time. I didn'texpect much out of this movie being but it did end up being better thanI expected it to be.I wouldn't say that watching this movie in the theater was a waste oftime-- it did have its funny moments-- but I would have been just ashappy watching it on DVD in the comfort of my own home.I do have to say that Kevin James fit perfectly for his role in thismovie.
It is becoming clear that Kevin James' humor does not translate to the big screen. I have every season of King of Queens and i think it is one of the top 10 tv shows of all time but i have a feeling i will be begging for this 90 minutes back at the end of my life. How on earth Nick Backay and Kevin James found this funny is beyond me. On a positive note i think that the 10 and under and the 70 and over crowd might enjoy this trainwreck. 0 stars.
