  • Love this Movie. Its Great & Funny
    Its one of those clean movies hollywood makes rarely.
    No sex, no violence, but still good comedy.
    The King of Queens star is the master if comedy here, especially when he communicates with his boss fluently over cell phone when the SWAT team guy asks him to shut up via the cop radio.

  • Mall Cop by Brandon M. Moskos
    If you're looking for a lot of laughs, this movie is a good movie to watch then. I saw this movie and realized that this is the type of movie where you are just looking for laughs and don't care much about the story. Basicly, Kevin James is a corny mall cop who gets in over his head doing his job. I thought Kevin James was funnier in Chuck and Larry, but I did enjoy this movie. I recommend it as a date movie or if you want to laugh a lot....more info
  • crowd pleaser for the younger kids
    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...more info
  • As Bad As I Expected
    I like Kevin James. I knew this movie would suck, and I was right. Where was the humor? Not in this dud.

    Lets see, a group of skateboard and bike riding gymnasts/robbers take over a mall. Hmmm. The robbers sommersault over railings...gee, who thought this up? James' scenes are just boring.

    This just proves that actors only care about the money. Quality scripts just don't matter.

    Avoid this one....more info
  • Paul Blartt
    We loved this movie and can"t wait for it to come out!!!!!!!!!!!! Nice to see a great clean movie....more info
  • maybe good to leave on during a noisy party?
    Not much groundbreaking material here. Fat awkward guy gets flirty eyes from a hot skinny blonde , dic*head nemesis at work, umm.... hostages taken at an urban mall? Safe humor to watch w/ your younger kids or somethin to leave on at a party where the plot line doesn't matter. A few funny lines but mostly just absurdly delerious plot developments. There is a reason this was co-produced by Adam Sandler. It is certainly that type of turn-off-your-brain type of humor. Watch it when you are totally bored or have a free coupon to use up. ...more info

    It is really good to see a family movie. I have seen movies with a R ratings that are comming to the BIG screen. Why do film makers need to show such trash. The family needs to remain in tack and we need to get togther an protest films with SEX ans VIOLANCE. It is destroying our familys....more info

    I am a huge fan of Kevin James and own everything that he has been a part of that has been released; of course you know that I loved this film. The best thing about his film is that the whole family can watch and enjoy it. There have been many things said about this film but when it comes down to it this is still one of the highest grossing films of the year, a number one hit at the box office, and a successful DVD. Kevin James [star/writer/producer] teams up once again with friend Adam Sandler [producer] and his Happy Madison Productions to bring us this delightful movie.

    Paul Blart is a shopping mall security guard in real life but in his head he wants to be a State Trooper but there is one thing holding him back, his hypoglycemia. Still he takes his day job very seriously, a little too much even. He also seems to have trouble with the ladies [his date video on the internet is hilarious] and one lady in particular, Amy. He also has a nice mother and daughter who seem to always try to hook him up with people over the internet. Any way one day while on the job a group of well lets just say crooks and they have a plan to make some good money, or steal, whatever. The only thing they didn't count on was an overweight, hypoglycemic, takes his job real serious mall cop named Paul Blart.

    The thing about this film is that it is a certain type of humor, Kevin James type of humor. Me personally I loved this film as did my bro and girl, even though this is a PG film meant for family viewing. Saying that seems weird because it is a Happy Madison film but it really is ok for all ages in my opinion. Also I think it was cool how the villains in this were real life skaters, bikers, and free runners, it actually made a lot of sense. Part of their deal is they have multiple credit card numbers to get from each store. It is a big mall and a two level one at that, in order to get the numbers before they switch they need to get to each store as quick as possible. I don't know but I kinda liked all the action these guys brought to the film, got to try that free runner thing.

    Producer/writer/star Kevin James is great in this film and funny as ever mixing in physical humor with some funny lines. James who has never given a weak performance in my opinion brings an every man feel to the character making it easier for you to rout for him. Also on a side note MMA LEGEND BAS RUTTEN makes an appearance at the beginning of the film as the instructor on the course. Keir O'Donnell was funny as the lead villain in the mall and to be honest it caught me off gaud with that character. Jayma Mays is good in this as well and not to mention easy on the eyes. Raini Rodriguez surprised me in this as Paul's daughter, great performance. Shirley Knight as his mom, Adam Ferrara, and of course Allen Covert are excellent in this as well even in smaller parts. Gary Valentine [Danny from King of Queens] is hilarious in his cameo as the karaoke singer, in fact I liked every one in this film.

    Now I know what you are thinking "this guy just loves Kevin James" and while that is true I genuinely liked this movie, I got the humor I guess. I know people who didn't really get into this and that is cool to each his own, but I felt the movie was rather entertaining. From the insane action from the villains to the comedic moments involving James this film was truly entertaining. And if that wasn't enough this DVD has some great special features including a look at the skater, bikers, and free runners [really interesting] and what they do for a living. Also there is a great commentary with James and one of the producers.

    Kevin and writing partner Nick Bakay did a great job as did director Steve Carr because they were not afraid to push this PG film out, and how successful it was at the box office. You know we were there opening day and of course at midnight the day the DVD was released I had to be there to own it. Sure I am a huge fan but the more I support people I like the more they will keep putting out. This is a great film in my opinion and well worth a purchase.

  • A Fun Movie...
    I love it when people get so serious over a movie which is clearly meant to be fun! Obviously anyone who saw this will agree the acting wasn't stellar & the story was hokey by all means, but come on, based on the material it was clearly meant to be a movie to get some laughs & make you feel good. What I really liked about Paul Blart was that Kevin James showed more of a serious & even tender side to himself which we never really got to see in his TV show The King of really wanted to see his character become truly happy in life & become the hero he always dreamed of being. And if you are a fan of The King of Queens then you also appreciate the fact that Kevin James had used some people from the show in the movie so there is a level of comfort to add to the story. All in all a very enjoyable movie if you are a fan of Kevin James & his goofball sense of humor. **Oh yeah & as a side note, the soundtrack was full of rockin tunes as well especially with the track 'Can't Hold Back' from Survivor. I had the Greatest Hits from them for a while now & I never really noticed that track until I saw this movie & I love it now!...more info
  • Very Awkward.
    It is a collection of awkward situations loosely connected by a thin-line story. It is not funny, I just do not know how to classify this movie.

  • "I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. You're untrained. You're unarmed... Let's face it, son, you present a huge target."
    There's a certain reek of insignificance which comes with being a lowly rent-a-cop, an authority figure with no real authority (to paraphrase Kevin James, a mall cop or a security guard's strongest move is they gotta call the real police). And, if you're an overweight, klutzy, hypoglycemic mall security guard like Paul Blart (Kevin James), a whole new realm of pathetic is explored. Paul Blart is a guy who never made good. He is zero for eight in his tries at passing the physical exam for the New Jersey State Police. Still living with his mother, long abandoned by his wife (an illegal immigrant who only married him to get that Green Card), haplessly in crush with the girl at the hair accessories kiosk, and so down-and-out in his love life that his supportive young daughter coaxes him to sign up with an online dating service... Paul Blart is a loveable loser. But on Black Friday, the craziest shopping day of the year, as thieves overrun his mall and take hostages, Paul Blart gets a chance to be the hero. He's alone, tired, fat... and the only chance anyone has got.

    PAUL BLART MALL COP may have been a surprising box office hit, but there's no denying its feel-good underdog appeal. I liked it enough and laughed plenty enough that I found it easy to overlook the plot inconsistencies and contrivances. I think it's worth 3.5 stars out of 5. In watching this one, it's fairly obvious that a homage is being paid to Die Hard, with our much abused mall cop playing the part of John McClane. And like McClane, Blart as the eyes inside gets no respect from the arriving police officer in charge. Ditto treatment from the S.W.A.T. commander, who used to bully Blart back in school. Even Blart's supervisor is quick to caution him: "I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. You're untrained. You're unarmed... Let's face it, son, you present a huge target."

    In DIE HARD Hans Gruber covets his lost detonator, which McClane had gotten a hold of. In this one Blart ends up with the credit card codes for the mall shops, something which the bad guy here originally had and now most desperately craves. So that's one more similarity. There's another moment which echoes a DIE HARD scene, the one with a near spent McClane taking time out to assess his wounds. Except that in Blart's case, his booboo is salved with a kid's bandaid. PAUL BLART MALL COP is a spoofy comedy, yet it's intelligently written enough that you do get invested in the story and its outcome. Kevin James tiptoes (heh!) the line between comedy and pathos. He handles plenty of his own stunts and demonstrates unexpected grace and physicality and some very good pratfalls and slapstick, his character consistently landing himself in very embarrassing predicaments. Blart tends to be officious and overzealous when on the job, traits that are offset by his inherently kind nature and big, big heart. Kevin James makes absolutely sure that the movie audience is on Blart's side, even if it means that Blart gets bagged on by the really obnoxious pen salesman or beat up by a *ahem* whole lot of woman.

    Note that Blart's Segway personal transporter qualifies almost as an extension of our hero's character, much like Indiana Jones's hat helped to flesh out that guy's persona. I wonder how long it took James to get familiar with motoring on the Segway, because he looks very, very comfortable on that thing. Two things which also work are Blart's relationship with his chubby, optimistic daughter and his clumsy wooing of Amy, the hair extension kiosk girl (her kiosk is called "Unbeweavable"). Although, admittedly, I pretty much cringed thru all those painfully awkward conversations between him and Amy. The film does a nice job of ensuring that the character moments are laid in before introducing the action/suspense plot. The action sequences, when they do come, are well executed, giving the fat man good opposition in the shapes of athletic perps who flaunt X Games skills (and even parkour). Paul Blart manages to turn the mall's resources to his advantage and to confound the baddies, even if the methods he applies are ridiculously implausible. The movie is all very silly, but presented in such an engaging manner that I couldn't help but be entertained. I certainly wouldn't say no to a sequel.

    The mild DVD bonus stuff includes the following: mildly amusing audio commentary by Kevin James & producer Todd Garner; ten weak deleted scenes (Blart gets photographed for his online dating profile; Blart and the S.W.A.T. guy, in pursuit; muttering cleaning custodian; a lost little boy; a quick bar chatter; bad guy explaining the importance of the credit card codes; criminal mastermind chastises a henchman; Paul needs to translate a cell phone text message; Pahud & Paul chatting on the celly; Blart is attacked with snowglobes); and the following mostly self-explanatory featurettes: "Kevin James: Not Your Average Mall Cop"; "Action Sports Junkies" & "Stunts" - these two segments are pretty cool, featuring real life X Gamers who played the bad guys in this film and their stunts, and also stunts by Kevin James; "The Mall"; and "On Set with Mike 'Rooftop' Escamilla" (Escamilla is an actor/BMX stuntguy)....more info
  • Loved it!
    I went to see this with a bunch of teenage girls and we all laughed until we cried. It's a good, clean, hillarious story. Just the thing to make you laugh at a time when we so often need to escape the seriousness of the real world....more info
  • It's amaze me
    This movie is very funny, I really love it!! It's so different with american's joke. I really proud of you Kevin! you are hilarious, good comedian. The greatest one!...more info
  • Extremely Funny!!!
    This is a really good and very funny movie! It's perfect for the whole family! It has an awesome plot and great actors. Everbody did an awesome job! Kevin James stars as the lovable and dorky Paul Blart, who works as a Security Guard at West Orange Pavilion Mall. Nobody really likes Paul, except for his daughter and mother. Then, he meets Amy, played by the sexy beautiful Jayma Mays. Amy starts to like him, until he gets drunk at a bar. On Black Friday, criminals disguised as Santa's elves take over the mall and have 6 hostages, Amy included. When Paul finds out about Amy, he takes a stand and fights back against the bad guys. It's like Die Hard for ALL audiences. If you love comedy, you'll love PAUL BLART: MALL COP!!!

  • My friend, Burly Ken, persuaded me into watching this. It was worth it!
    He promised me he would let me ride him like a pony back to the video store to return the dvd if I agreed to watch it with him. Truth is, I was so excited by that promise that I couldn't focus on the movie, but I'm sure it's a funny flick!...more info
  • A great film...if you're twelve.
    This film about a loveable loser mall security guard made Seth Rogen's "Observe & Report" look like comedy genius. "Blart's" nonsensical plot (guys on skateboards and BMX bikes take over a mall) seems aimed at the 10-18 crowd who are meant marvel at the cool yet totally ridiculous stunts and to laugh at the different ways Kevin James can make fun of the fact he's obese. Plus there's an over abundance of bad late 70s/early 80s rock songs.

    File this mall cop malady one under: Avoid & Evade....more info
  • Horrible
    This movie is yet another prime example as to why I no longer go to the movies (in addition to the outrageous price and my boycott of the MPAA). The preview looks good and the concept sounds great, what movie that involves the mall, teenagers or high school sucks? If we're talking about anything from the 80s or 90s or even a select few from this last decade, not many. Mall Cop sucks.

    For one, it's high predictable about 15 minutes in. We all know what is going to happen and how. This, in my opinion, is not necessarily a fault as it's the journey, not the predictable ending, that matters. We all know our life will end in death but it's the journey that counts. The journey of our Mall Cop is atrociously hard to watch.

    The movie takes place entirely in the mall and what feels like a single day (The film is poorly edited, just moments after the opening you'll be wondering how we got from police training to mall cop). Personally I disdain single-day films and while the plot doesn't take place in a single day it certainly feels it. The single location of the mall doesn't help either.

    The movie feels very flat and go no where the entire length. Additionally, we have a love interest in the film which never feels quite right as the love interest looks half the age of Paul Blart with a future as opposed to Blart who could be her dad who never amounted to anything in his life.

    About half way through the film I was asking myself: Am I suppose to feel sorry for Blart? I didn't feel sorry for Blart, in fact, I barely felt as if I known the character. The only person I felt anything for was the love interest of Blart who in this day and age would be a victim. I felt as though she was being stalked and harassed by this old loser mall cop. I felt sorry for the mall as well.

    The movie has no basis of reality in it either which wouldn't be a bad thing if the plot was able to pull it off or if even Kevin James could pull it off without appearing to be deliberately acting which he can't.

    All in all, PLEASE do not waste your time on this film. I didn't even want to write a review for this but seeing the unbelievable stars this film has I felt it necessary. I honestly cannot see how anyone could find this film the slightest bit enjoyable. ...more info
