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

When Blart puts the "Hello Kitty" Band-Aid on the small cut on his arm, it is apparent there were multiple takes of this scene. The skin the Band-Aid covered is much cleaner than the surrounding tissue and the imprint of the Band-Aid from previous takes is very apparent as he puts the Band-Aid on in the shot used in the movie.

Okay, so I was one of many people who were anxiously awaiting the release of yet another Happy Madison production and was especially excited about the fact that it would be starring Kevin James. What I think I didn't pay much attention to was the rating. A very important point of note about this movie is that it's rated PG! Now, if you love movies produced by Adam Sandler and such, you will find that this movie has funny parts. The plot, however, is overwhelmingly geared toward presenting a somewhat funny film for the entire family; as opposed to the raunchy, adult humor that Happy Madison usually presents.
I just returned from a matinée showing of this film, and if I'd paid full price for what I thought was another Happy Madison hit, I'd have been sorely disappointed. If you're looking for a movie with good, clean humor that you could take your kids to see, then you should love this movie. However, if you were hoping for a bit more...as I was...then you might want to wait until the DVD release.
