As we approach the Oscars and the number of movies that are up for nomination that I have yet to see continues to grow, I have to become very selective about the movies I spend my lunch money on. So when Erik dragged me and my lil sis to see Paul Blart: Mall Cop last Friday, I wasn't stoked, but at least he payed. I figured I'd get at least a laugh or two from it. And that's all I got: two chuckles and a whole lot of, "what are you doing with your career, Kevin James???"
Truthfully, I think it's Happy Madison Productions that's lost it's mojo and Kevin James is just a willing participant that needs to go back to sitcom or stand-up. I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, You Don't Mess with the Zohan, and now Paul Blart:Mall Cop were all weak-sauce! Bring back Billy and Happy and Grandma's Boy, please!
How it's top of the box-office right now is just sick: sold-out, watered-down, family-friendly flop!
