“Paul Blart Mall Cop 2” Movie Review

3.5-Watertowers ForCarol.com movie reviews(Paul Blart in Las Vegas)

Six years after the events in the first movie, Paul Blart (Kevin paul blart mall cop 2James) lost his wife of six days (she divorced him) and his mother got hit by a milk truck while getting the morning paper. His daughter, Maya (Raini Rodriguez), is all he has left and she just found out she has been accepted to UCLA (but, she is afraid to tell him).

Since he saved the mall six years ago,he is at a low point in his life until he gets an invitation to attend the SOTA Conference in Las Vegas (a conference and exhibit for mall cops). Thrilled with the invitation, Paul and Maya go there and stay at the Wynn.

So do a gang of bad guys looking to steal the valuable art work in the Wynn.

Maya stumbles into the Presidential Suite where the bad guys are planning the heist. They kidnap her and her new boyfriend, Lane (David Henrie).  Maya calls her dad and Paul Blart Mall Cop is called into action.

“Paul Blart Mall Cop 2” is way better than I thought it would be. Funny, action packed (mostly slapstick) with a decent plot. Paul Blart is not as bumbling as he was in the first movie, in fact, he gave a pretty awesome Keynote speech for the Conference and did a fine job knocking out the gang members. BUT….it was written by Kevin James and produced by Adam Sandler, sooooooo, don’t expect Oscar winning performances. Do expect slightly stupid comedy with some poignant moments, and you won’t be disappointed.  No f-words, good for the whole family. By the way, Kevin James is a damn good on that Segway.
