Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Review

21 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

The thing to know going into Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is that it isn’t a real movie. No one involved in the film thinks it has any positive qualities at all, much less that there is anything funny in it. It’s just one more step in the Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Happy Madison Productions endeavor to follow in the footsteps of P.T. Barnum. It isn’t a film created because anyone thinks there is any “goodness” about it (using any definition you want), it’s a film created because several people think lots of other people are stupid. With a roughly $30 million budget, it’s going to pay off.

Kevin James is back for another trip on the Segway with a character no one asked for more of. Now several years later, Paul Blart gets invited to SecurityCon, or whatever, in Las Vegas, and he decides to take his daughter, »

New Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 Received Mostly Negative Reviews From Major Critics

Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new comedy film, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" into theaters this weekend, and all the top, major movie critics have given their reviews. And oh my, my. Saying they weren't pleased with it, is a drastic understatement as they only gave it an overall 14 score out of a possible 100 across 14 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Kevin James, Neal McDonough, Shirley Knight, and Raini Rodriguez. We've supplied blurbs from a few of the critics,below. Kevin P. Sullivan from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a really awful 25 grade, stating: "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 does all it was created to do: exist." Sara Stewart over at the New York Post, gave it a 25, saying: " Is it never funny? No, it’s not never funny. It’s just not funny nearly often enough." Andy Webster from The New York Times, gave it a 20 score, saying: »

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Review

17 April 2015 9:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 returns Kevin James to the role of the titular mild mannered, Segway-riding, mustache-clad, mall security guard. Six years ago, Blart stopped a heist and the kidnapping of his daughter by taking down a gang of criminals in the West Orange Pavilion Mall. This time around, he’s once again forced to dispatch of an “elite” group of criminals while saving his daughter… but in Las Vegas!

Beginning with some archival footage from the last installment, Blart quickly dispatches of the Jayma Mays love-interest-turned-wife from Paul Blart by explaining that they divorced six days later. Then, his loving mother gets hit by a milk truck. These developments both leave Blart crying as he quickly shuffles away to his bedroom, running past his dutifully supportive young daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez). He’s such a helpless sad sack that when Maya gets accepted to UCLA, she’s afraid »

‘Justified’ Series Finale Goes Out With Its Boots On (Spoilers)

14 April 2015 8:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

FX has produced noisier series over the years that “Justified” has graced its schedule, but none better. The final season has been a particular treat, with terrific cast additions (topped by Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen) that augmented the central focus on the trio of Raylan, Boyd and Ava. Expectations were thus high for the series finale, which stayed true to the program’s modern-cowboy ethos as well as the heady mixture of drama, comedy and tension that has always defined the dynamics among its key players.

As usual, this adaptation of an Elmore Leonard story (which included a classy ending-credits thank-you to its late pappy) juggled a multitude of plots, and even by this season’s standards had to hustle to bring resolution to most of them. At its core, though, the entire finishing flurry has been devoted to the determination of U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant »

Goodbye to 'Justified,' a sharp-tongued, quick-drawing pleasure to the end

13 April 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"You make me pull, I put you down." These eight words are deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens in a nutshell — and Elmore Leonard in a nutshell as well. The eight words, first presented in that order in Leonard's short story "Fire in the Hole" (expanding on a supporting player in a few earlier Leonard novels), tell you that Raylan is a man with both a rigid code and a high opinion of himself. And that he has to say them out loud — in this case to his former friend and present nemesis Boyd Crowder — suggests Raylan is a man who very much enjoys opportunities to put his code, and gun, into action. As dialogue goes, it is simple and spare while telling you everything you need to know — the perfect Elmore Leonard sentence. TV veteran Graham Yost took that line off the page and put it into the mouth »

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 movie review: stupor hero

13 April 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Hard to believe, I know, but this is a real movie that real people have unashamedly put their names to. Because a sweet paycheck trumps human dignity. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): hated the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Imagine being asked to feel sorry for the Three Stooges. Except there’s only one of them, a combination of Larry and Curly (incorporating Moe would bring too much gravitas and intelligence to the character). Stir for 90 minutes, and leave for undemanding moviegoers to serve themselves. And then do it all again, though with even less sense of anyone involved giving a damn or putting in any actual effort, because the first such attempt made an ungodly amount of money so why bother?

Presenting Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. It sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch that thinks »

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 review

12 April 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kevin James is back as Paul Blart. But there's nothing - nothing, nothing, nothing - here to make anyone think about a Paul Blart 3

This review contains a spoiler for the beginning of Alien 3.

In early 2009, Paul Blart: Mall Cop was Kevin James' family-friendly answer to Die Hard, set in a mall in New Jersey. Released in Us cinemas during a drought of kid-friendly fare, it stuck around in the box office charts for 12 weeks after it was released, eventually hoovering up $146m domestically. Just as quick off the mark as the titular character, it's taken six years for the inevitable Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 to arrive.

After the genre trappings of the first film, it's only logical that the sequel turns out to be a family-friendly Die Hard 2. That is to say, it's basically the first one, all over again, in a different location and somehow not as good. »

First 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' Clip and TV Spot

20 March 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Like any doting father would do, Paul Blart (Kevin James) makes sure his daughter (Raini Rodriguez) has plenty of protection before going out in a new clip from Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Before leaving, Paul runs down the checklist with Maya: extra phone battery, flashlight, hot pepper spray, pocket knife/keychain/window smasher and baby road flares. When Paul insists that she carries a walkie-talkie, set to "monitor" mode, so Paul can hear everything that's going on, Maya reveals she already "feels like a Swat team."

In this sequel, in which Kevin James reprises the role of Paul Blart, the security guard is headed to Las Vegas to attend a Security Guard Expo with his teenage daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) before she departs for college. While at the convention, he inadvertently discovers a heist - and it's up to Blart to apprehend the criminals. Neal McDonough, Daniella Alonso, Eduardo Ver&#225stegui, »

Giovanni Gopradi talks Drama, Comedy, and getting kicked in the chest by Kevin James

10 March 2015 3:19 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Giovanni Gopradi is a public speech fearing law student turned commited actor. In just two years he acted in 30 different films which required over a hundred casting calls. He's already built up an impressively diverse body of work, from playing in shorts and personal films to taking on Hollywood slapstick like Paul Blart Mall Cop 2. I got the chance to discuss his approach to acting, and his rapidly growing, diverse resume. Check it out! 

 

 

Q. You seem to transition a lot from light hearted comedies/dramas to very serious roles. Can that be a jarring transition? Or do you take it quite naturally?

 

I correlate it to like, a normal event that happens in everyones life. When you goto a party the mindset is that you’re joking around and having a good time, and when there’s a death in the family that mindset changes. And it really depends »

Whether you loved or loathed Kevin James’ bumbling, titular character in the 2009 surprise hit, the unlikeliest of unlikely heroes is back for another action-packed spiel in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.

Set six years after the events of the original, Mall Cop 2 will pick up at a time when Blart has reluctantly agreed to kick back and spend time with his family.
