Paul Blart attends a security conference in Vegas which is just the thing to help him get over the loss of his mother and his new bride leaving him. I suggest that if you want to lose your money, go to the casino rather than this movie. I give Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 a D.
I grew up watching great physical comedians from Lucille Ball to Carol Burnett, from Jerry Lewis to the Chevy Chase. Kevin James isn't one of them. He tries to be funny as a mall security guard who thinks more of himself than reality is in this story written by James and produced by Adam Sandler. Yet the story was trite. Bad guys are stealing the Wynn art collection to get back at losing money at the resort and only Blart and his band of guards can stop them.
I know that the first Mall Cop was a cult favorite but in this story all the typical comedic parts are there from the bad guy with two different colored eyes who thinks he’s crazy, to James’ stumbling , bumbling accidents. There’s a fight with a bird while a man continues to play the piano and a chase scene on a modified Segway. Gun’s that misfire as well as all the bad guys being such horrible shots to miss everyone!
I didn’t even crack a smile during the movie and while I saw a lot of YOUNG children at the theater, I wouldn’t recommend it for children under 10. Better yet, go spend the money to take the kids to see Cinderella again or take them to a picnic lunch.
It's all about the movies...
