Funnier the first time through, regret the $4 I spent on owning it.
Okay....so I remembered this movie to be funnier then it actually was the second time through. I still found it humorous, but really almost too simple. Maybe I was in a different mood when I watched it the first time, but the second time through Paul Blart just appeared pathetic. He is supposed to be pathetic to a point, but it almost goes overboard. The first time through I was rooting for him to succeed. The second time throught I actually thought the girl he is trying to court is actually better off without him in his life. I really like Kevin James...really don't want to be too hard on him...but this movie really is too simple to recommend. The fight scenes are lame (an overweight, out of shape Paul taking out a tribe of youthful skate board types who have enough energy to run a small village off of), his daughter appears to be taking care of him instead of the other way around, and the ending just leaves me kinda flat feeling. This is just an average movie...I regret the $4 I spent to own it.Read full review

Paul Blart: Mall Cop
A single, suburban dad tries to make ends meet as a security officer at a New Jersey mall. It's a job he takes very seriously, though no one else does. When Santa's helpers at the mall stage a coup, shutting down the megaplex and taking hostages (Paul's daughter and sweetheart among them), Jersey's most formidable mall cop will have to become a real cop to save the day. Refreshing to see a movie without bad language, unnecessary sexual content, good script writing, and enjoyable throughout. Characters were real and relatable and very funny.

Funny without grunge. Loved at home and in ESL class.
I like Kevin James a lot. He is clever without being dirty. I am also impressed with the physical feats he had to do in this film. He successfully jumps over a counter and shimmies in an air duct as I recall -- not to forget the sliding across the floor which is slowed down by his heft. In other words, he uses his body image both for humor and to show he is not a total wimp.
He seems like a friend you would want to have. His characters are always down-to-earth, pleasant and honest.
I was very pleased with this film. My husband and I both enjoyed it and I will probably use this film in one of my classes where I teach English to people from other countries. Thankfully, I won't have to initiate the movie with an explanation of taboo words to know, but avoid.
