Movie Review: Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Kevin James is easily one of my favourite comedic actors. I loved King of Queens, it was hilarious. He has a certain charm that other actors in his genre don't in my opinion.

Paul Blart is a mall cop. He patrols around the mall "helping" people, but wants to be a police officer but can't due to a condition he has. He also has a crush on mall worker Amy (played by Jayma Mays, best known for Red Eye and various T.V. roles such as House and Heroes). His family consists of his daughter and mother who want him to begin dating again (his wife left him after getting married).

It's Black Friday and robbers take over the mall and Paul has to defeat them. So basically it's a spoof off of the original Die Hard movies.

The movie is pretty witty and funny. There were some twists that I actually didn't see coming so that was surprising from a movie like this.

Acting: 8/10
Story: 8.5/10
Atmosphere: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
Rated: PG (ONT) PG (USA)

P.S. Jayma Mays is hot!
