After six years of keeping our malls safe, Paul Blart has earned a well-deserved vacation. He heads to Vegas with his teenage daughter before she heads off to college. But safety never takes a holiday and when duty calls, Blart answers.
After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Paul Blart is a mild-mannered man who works as a security guard in a New Jersey mall. For years, he has applied to become a cop, but he always fails the physical exam because he is overweight. One day, a gang of organized criminals put the mall under siege and take hostages. Blart becomes trapped inside, and because of his sense of duty, refuses to leave. He thus becomes the police department's eyes on the inside and attempts to stop the criminals on his own. Written by

When Paul Blart is trying to run through the glass doors to pick up a birthday-card you can see how his radio is secured on his right shoulder. When he falls backwards you can clearly see how the radio falls off. But directly in the next shot it's back on his shoulder. See more »

I really liked the "King of Queens" TV show, as many did. Especially those who are tempted to watch this movie. Unless you are still a teenager (or younger), you might not care about the lead role. But while Kevin James seems to promise a few "belly laughs" (no pun intended), the jokes are more miss than hit.
Which is the biggest problem of the movie. Not the story (what would you expect from this really, story-wise), nor the actors in general (they need better material to work with). The movie solely relies on Kevin James and while that worked with the TV Show, it does not work here. You will eventually get tired of the jokes, but it happens to quickly.
So if you're not a Kevin James fan or like to be entertained in a better way, than this isn't the movie for you
