Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is coming because f*ck you, that's why.

Jan. 7, 2014by: Niki Stephens

Why would I ever think that the days of PAUL BLART: MALL COP were behind us? I never met anyone who openly admitted to enjoying the film but many, many people went to see it (not surprised). The numbers are there. It made $146 million domestically.

So if you are a closeted PAUL BLART fan then it might it excite you to know that a new director will be boarding the sequel. Yes, a sequel. Andy Fickman (SHE'S THE MAN, THE GAME PLAN, YOU AGAIN) is in talks to direct the second installment which may or may not contain Segways. Kevin James will not only reprise his role but co-write the script with Nick Bakay.

There's no hints on what the sequel will be about (not that you care) but I'm fairly certain there will be more mall hijinks. Personally, I'd rather have a sequel to OBSERVE AND REPORT over this. Why can't Paul Blart be a closet psychopath?

Love him or hate him, Kevin James is becoming that family film guy. Paul Blart, Grown Ups, and Here Comes the Boom do good box office wise. I wish they gave this guy better projects because i used to love watching King of Queens

I lost brain cells just reading that there's another one coming, let alone what I'd lose watching it.

I'll be honest, and I know I'll get attacked for doing so, but I actually thought the first movie was surprisingly good. Not great or anything, but just good.A lot better than the recent Kevin James and or Adam Sandler films we have seen. So I'm up for a sequel.

Well

I liked the first one. I thought it was pretty fun and entertaining. it was one of the few comedies that didn't resort to potty humor and sex jokes to get a laugh.

Mash Up

They should get Seth Rogen and totally fuck with the heads of movie goers. It's sad because Observe and Report was an excellent movie over shadowed by this hunk of shit. Lets mesh the two worlds and watch the flames as they scatter down

I have to admit being the one of the people seeing this on TV, it was filmed at the mall near me and I was curious how it would turn out. And upon viewing realized it competely sucked. Maybe the second will end with him in a diabetic coma.

Is the superior mall cop movie. Jody Hill is a black comedy genius.

Love the title of this article

But why is it I hate Kevin James movies, never watched his TV show but I actually like the guy? I think I saw 10 minutes of his stand up special and his greeting card bit made me laugh. I can't hate him : )

While not a great movie, it's harmless and tolerable. When did this movie start getting so much hate? I saw it in theaters and remember very little aside from not loathing it like expected.

It relies on stupid pratfalls, family friendly, political correctness, humor that has no thought and little entertainment value. Also, Adam Sandler produced it. Take what out will but it appears that idiots have money to burn and thus we are limited by what Hollywood produces.

Never saw it so I can't give it any first-hand criticism. But it started getting hate from a certain sector of the population right out the gate.

It feels like this movie provokes a lot more disdain than it probably should. I saw it with a group of friends, and I don't remember shaking my fists at the heavens after.

not that bad

it was a kids movie they marketed as a PG13 comedy. Thats why it made so much money, kids thought they were watching a grown-up movie. It's not terrible on its own either. Just kinda forgettable.

I just hope Alan Rickman plays the villain. I think he would make the writers and director step up their game.

I was surveyed about this sequel idea months ago. The plot they presented me with was that Blart and his daughter are vacationing at a resort and thieves (or something) take over the resort and Blart must spring into action to save the day

There is no one else to blame but the moviegoers who contributed to that $146 million.

*looks around with an accusatory glance*

Sad for Nick Bakay, I miss Chris Farley!

Bakay is a very funny actor and I think has the skill to write a funny movie but I don't think this will be the one. Bakay was behind a lot of funny skits in the early days of In Living Color and did some hilarious skits on ESPN in the 90's but he has been religated to a lot of bad sitcoms and kids shows of late. The show Moms (which I've never seen), Zookeeper and now this being his only major credits recently outside of crappy kids and TV shows.
As for Kevin James he just isn't

As for Kevin James he just isn't funny...even on King of Queen's he was the third funniest character, far behind Jerry Stiller (who is great on that show) and Patton Oswalt. James is similar to Melissa McCarty in that he has transitioned from a hit TV show to movies based on the single joke of their obesity. They prey on people with lower intelligence and bad taste in films to be box office stars with their one note, lowest common denominator brand of "comedy" (although I think McCarty is a bit more talented showing some comedic range in Bridesmaids and The Heat). It's a shame that Chris Farley is dead because he would put all of these overweight actors to shame and likely would have prevented at least a few of them from succeeding with their poor imitations of a comedy legend.
I'll certainly pass on this one, I haven't even seen the original even though it was at Redbox for $1 seemingly for years and was on HEAVY rotation on HBO or Starz a for a longtime as well.

I liked it....

Granted it was a stupid movie that substituted intelligent banter and action for silliness, but it was hardly worse than most of the dreck out there. I'd put this thing on 24hr rotation before I watched Meet The Spartans a single time.

Here Comes The Boom is a MUCH BETTER movie from James, but this was good for a laugh as long as you can take it for what it is.
