Intro: Mall Cop is a comedy that falls short in the funny department. I was expecting a lot more from the very funny, Kevin James.

Review: Paul Blart: Mall Cop was a clean film. However, for some reason, it did not do it for me…comically. I guess I was expecting it to be funnier. I should note though, my husband liked it a lot. LOL.

For me it was just, eh.

Do not misunderstand this review. The movie is not bad. Unfortunately, for me, a lot of the humor was just not hitting the mark. There was nothing new about it. It was the same old same old.

Overall, the film is relatively clean. A few odd things here and there, but nothing over the top or too risky for little ones.

There are some violent scenes. The violence is like a Mission Impossible comedy though. LOL. The scenes that incorporate the MI feel were the funniest ones in the movie.

Language was minor potty mouth. A few He**s, scumbag, and the like scattered throughout the film.

The one scene that I thought was completely dumb and unnecessary took place in a bar. Paul got drunk and acted like a total idiot. So, you will most likely want to discuss and point out why the getting drunk is not a good thing with the kiddos…

Conclusion: Overall, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, was a clean film that will be safe for most viewers.

Like I said though, the comedy fell short for me. Maybe it will work for you! Let me know…
