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 has hypogmycemia and tends to pass out when his blood sugar is low. 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
Most people would fantasize about what they would do if their loved ones and friends were in harm's way and they are the only person who could save them. None of these people also imagine that it's in the place they hold most deadly to their heart. Paul Blart is a man of action, a selfless hero who springs into action at a moments notice and will do whatever it takes to thwart his foes of their plans. He doesn't do it for the fame or glory, he does it because he doesn't have a choice. He has an inner voice, he hears an altruistic echo that resonates through those hallowed halls of the mall that call him to action. Sure he doesn't appear to be a hero, someone may see him for the first time and think of him as a "fat guy with a glorious mustache " or a "rent a cop with above average Segway skills" or "a person struggling with hypoglycemia, heartbreak, and copes with the pain by patrolling the grounds of the West Orange Pavilion Mall". It doesn't matter to him what they think because he knows when the time comes for him to strap on his helmet, put down a quick pixie stick, repeat his core values "detect, deter, observe, and report". He doesn't need the world, but the world needs him. He is Paul Blart and he is our Mall Cop.
