Paul Blart: Mall Cop
Paul Bart: Mall Cop
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.
“This is actually better than it sounds. Kevin James, who I just think is a very appealing actor plays a sort of a loser who is goes to the police academy. He covers the required obstacle course except because he is hyperglycemic, he passes out just before the finish line. The idea is that the mall is taken over in a hostage situation and Paul Blart has to save the day. How they take over the mall is actually vaguely interesting but I just am not crazy about the idea of combining humor and violence in a society that is already fairly violent.”
