PAUL BLART: MALL COP (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Stars ìììì

Paul Blart: Mall
Cop is one of America’s best clean, comedic movies of the year. With a simple script that reminds us that goodness, honesty, heart, and courage in any occupation can lead to the happiest of endings, Kevin James, the exceptionally likable lead actor in The King of Queens television series, shows us in an all-around-fun way that success comes to those who believe that high performance is not dictated by the status of the job, but by the integrity that exists inside of a person.
