Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) score: 28%
I can’t remember when I last saw a comedy with so few laughs and such an embarrassed-looking cast. I think I tittered once or twice but not at the moments I was meant to. Paul Blart is a mundane character who’s too irritating to root for or find remotely comical, and the same can be said about Kevin James, who not only portrays him but wrote him too.
Anybody, and I stress ANYBODY, could have made this nonevent vanity project. It really bothers me that Sony actually put money into it. They produce high quality tech, but evidently terrible films.
