IMHO: Paul Fart - Mall Flop

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!


  1. Grandma's Boy is probably the funniest movie ever.

  2. The fact that Paul Blart is still tops at the box office tells us either that (A) people have already seen the Oscar nominated movies or (B) people prefer mindless entertainment (like toilet humor and big explosions) to movies that make you think and feel. Shame. I thought Grandma's Boy was funny, but Zohan and Chuck and Larry were both wicked bad.

    Hopefully Happy Madison will muscle up and release something halfway worth watching in the near future.

  3. There's a sequel in the works!!!
