52 Movies in 52 Weeks: Week 22: Paul Blart Mall Cop
This movie was hugely popular (no pun intended, for those of you who have seen it, or are even familiar with Kevin James’ trim figure). I wonder if perhaps the reason it was so popular is because it was free from sex, language, or violence.
Story of Paul Blart, who wants to be a Police Officer, but can’t pass the physical testing required to pass the screening. Ends up a security guard in a mall, driving a Segway, and sporting a weird mustache. In truth, I think the ‘stache and the Segway are the funnies elements of the whole movie, but as a whole I think it fell pretty flat. Perhaps my humor is just so whacked that I don’t find the same things funny as most people. Either way, it wasn’t bad. It just wasn’t as funny as I expected (or hoped) it would be. My rating: C+
