Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper's paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective, is recruited to close the case.
When seasoned comedian George Simmons learns of his terminal, inoperable health condition, his desire to form a genuine friendship cause him to take a relatively green performer under his wing as his opening act.
Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
Ronnie Barnhardt lives with his alcoholic mother. He's chief security guard at Forest Ridge Mall, where he's in love with Brandi, a cosmetic sales clerk, and gets a free coffee each day from Nell, a cheery clerk in the food court. A flasher haunts the mall's parking lot, and at night, thefts occur. Ronnie is intent on catching the criminals but has no investigative skills, is delusional about his abilities, and makes mad accusations. His bête noire is Detective Harrison, the city cop sent to investigate. Ronnie thinks he could be an officer, thinks he stands a chance with Brandi, and slowly loses his self control. Will reality set in? What about redemption? Written by
During the filming of a fight scene, Seth Rogen broke a stunt man's nose by accidentally hitting him in the face for real. See more »
When Ronnie is doing his monologue in the background when he's looking at himself in the mirror (right after the bench press scene), it is obvious there is a different person looking into the bogus mirror because his body movements are not consistent with his reflection. See more »

Seth Rogan is a Security Guard at a mall who just takes his job to seriously. He has some mental problems and is in love with this shallow girl who works at one of the department stores, played by Anna Ferris, who is the only slightly funny thing in the whole movie. She plays a good drunk. I didn't really expect a lot from this movie and it delivered even less than I thought. It was just not fun at all. I expect more from Seth Rogan. He's doing the best with the material he has, but it's not much. I don't think I laughed once during the movie. Michael Pena and Ray Liota are in it too and they are good for what they have too. These are all good actors that just made a bad choice.
