Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Safety never takes a holiday.


Paul Blart: Mall Cop
A security guard at a mall dreams of being a cop, but keeps failing the test. So he pretends to be a policeman at work. He's generally unhappy, and his attempted relationship with a pretty worker at the mall is not going well. Then one day, some robbers try to take over the mall, and take some hostages, including the woman of his dreams. He decides to rescue her, which gets more complicated once the real cops and SWAT team start getting in the way.

Nils van der Linden quote iconJust don't expect anything more than pretty average. Not unlike Blart himself.

The Citizen
Annette Bayne quote iconLike Blart, this film tries too hard to be funny and liked, but the plot is thin and predictable and the humour painfully flat.

Ulpha Edries quote iconTo watch or not to watch is the question? I'd say go for it if there's nothing better to watch.

Peter Travers quote iconWhat a year at the movies this 2009 has been so far. Bride Wars, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Inkheart, Hotel for Dogs and now this!

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconThose looking for some mindless and simple escapism might enjoy some or all of the material, but most of it came off as too uninspired and lethargic to entertain yours truly.

Tomatometer quote iconPaul Blart: Mall Cop has some laughs, but its plot is flimsy and lacking in any sustained comic momentum.
