PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Stars ìììì

Paul Blart Mall Cop 2
succeeds because someone had the foresight to cast Kevin James as Paul Blart in the first and second episodes. Despite a few noticeably ‘forced’ scenes deliberately repeated for comedic effect (i.e., Blart skidding across the floor on his side past a planter), the sequel works and becomes an easy afternoon of light entertainment. We get the surprise of our lives when we find Blart in a troubled marriage and follow the movie to see how his life will turn for the better. Along with the drama involved with an only daughter getting ready to leave for college and start her own life, the film blends action with pathos and comedy in, of all places, Las Vegas.

Yes.  A good watch, but not as good as the first film.
