Critic Reviews for Paul Blart: Mall Cop
In places the plot sags a bit and some jokes don't quite hit their mark or tickle the funny bone as much as they're obviously meant to.
James makes a funny, likeable doofus, and the expansion of his girth since his hit sitcom The King of Queens is used to great comic effect.
This isn't brain surgery; this is daffy entertainment that plays to its strengths, with director Steve Carr trusting in James' deadpan earnesty
Audience Reviews for Paul Blart: Mall Cop
I liked this, sure its very childish, predictable, cheesy and we've seen it all before but its still humorous and doesn't take itself seriously (of course), so hey...what the hell. James makes it funny, simple, I like Kevin James ('King of Queens') a lot. Like John Candy, John Belushi and Chris Farley his size gives his light-hearted, visual comedy skills a mega boost. He's a nice guy, easy going, makes you feel happy and comfortable with his average guy, blue collar persona. The plot is utter trash, very stupid, a total 'Die Hard' parody in the second half (almost a spoof) which at times becomes a bit too close to serious and not funny. The whole hostage idea kinda spoils the comedy side of things, it should of remained just a 'Dumb n Dumber' style comedy to the very end. It all gets a bit moody and at times a tad dark, the movie forgets what its suppose to be here and there, methinks. The whole concept at the start is funny, a mall cop who thinks he's a real cop in a mall, the scene where Blart stops an OAP in a buggy is brilliant, best scene, other things are very babyish eg. prat falls and drunk tomfoolery etc..That angle does lower the tone when it could of been a great 'Dodgeball' style adult comedy. A slight shame because it could of been a solid classic spoof/parody comedy. Nevertheless its still a reasonably fun little film, good time if your with your mates...possibly a bit tipsy.

I was not at all interested in this film and saw it only by chance; however It was not as bad as I was anticipating though. It's obviously that silly slapstick style of comedy, but I found myself intrigued enough to want to see how the ending pans out.
