Paul Blart: Mall Cop

You might know Kevin James as the ‘big-boned’ guy out of sitcoms The King Of Queens and Everybody Loves Raymond. This is his first lead movie role - co-produced by Adam Sandler - and it sees him play a bumbling shopping mall security guard with dreams of making the real police force. He gets a chance to prove his worth when a hostage situation involving a criminal gang occurs on his patch – the West Orange Pavilion Mall. Jayma Mays - recognizable from lots of TV shows including Heroes and Ugly Betty - plays the love interest.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop / Reviews

Variety

Variety

An almost shockingly amateurish one-note-joke comedy.

Only a creepy mustache and a complete lack of self-awareness separate Paul Blart’s likeable shlub from Doug Heffernan, the amiable deliveryman James portrayed on sitcom King Of Queens for nine years.

The New York Times

A tossed-off comedy from Adam Sandler's production company that makes one long for the comparative genius of "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry."

It's as slam-bang preposterous as any R-rated comedy you can name. It's just that Paul Blart and the film's other characters don't feel the need to use the f-word as the building block of every sentence.

Underneath all the cartoonish mall mayhem and silly slapstick lies a comedy that aspires to be the sort of gentle crowd-pleaser John Hughes used to make.

Great comics from Jerry Lewis to Peter Sellers have turned pathetic into comedic. But James never seems to able to get beyond pathetic.

Hardly promising but, thanks to James’ winningly gung-ho underdog and the fat-man grace he brings to a pratfall, unexpectedly watchable.
