Kevin James, last seen opposite Adam Sandler in the gay-for-pay trainwreck of ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry’, ups the quality quotient ever-so-slightly for this flour-and-water kiddie comedy where he plays the corpulent dimwit of the title, a widowed security officer (he’s never called a ‘mall cop’) for a shopping centre in California’s Orange County.

When a gang of tattooed, gun-toting le parkour experts lay siege to his mall, he’s put through a ‘Dawn of the Dead’ type set-up for which he sheds his bumbling idiot schtick and takes them out one by one. First thing to say is that this is only for the very young or easily pleased, with much of the humour deriving from James rolling about on the floor or crashing into the scenery on his Segway. Unmemorable, unfunny and unoriginal, this was a hit in the US, so brace yourself for the further adventures of Paul Blart in the not-too-distant future.

This film is a must see! 10/10 in my respect, the acting is fab and the clever comedy stunts are hillarious! I went to see this film with my two children aged 9 and 14. At first the film seemed to drag on a tad but i found it really started to pick up thus making much more funny and i my two sons and i found this film to have a very clever and original plot line with alot of hidden humour it may be hard for the very young children the reviewist reccomended it for, to understand. Overall a BRILLIANT family film and i reccomend it highly.

The reviewer wrote: "this is only for the very young or easily pleased..." That sums up the movie rather neatly. Kevin James realy does have a kind of Lou Costello thing going. He could be one to see in future films-if there a lot better than this.

this film is amazingly funny,it's a must see! me and some friends took a day out of work and went down to our local cinema. we took in some snacks&drinks(you will need!) and had a blast! for the first 30-45minutes the film was a little bit of a drag but then it started to become hillarious.we couldn't stop laughing and i was telling my friends to shush because they carried on laughing. it's a 10/10 performance,you must see guys.

TRUTH TELLER

This is basically a comedic version of Die Hard but not as funny. Instead of Bruce Willis as a New York cop chasing terrorists in a Los Angles skyscraper we have Kevin James as a security guard in a shopping mall chasing crooks who attack the mall and want to rob the mall of $30 million. It's hard to see how they could possibly rob a shopping mall of $30 million but perhaps they were planning to hold up the drinks and popcorn counter in the mall's movie theatre. It's one of those movies where they got a star and an idea, which they copied, and then made it up as they went along-only they couldn't think of anything. The first forty-five minutes I actually started wishing I'd taken up knitting while the kids in the audience were more interested in talking than watching and the woman in front of me started sending text messages on her phone. Perhaps she was sending for help. Once the crooks attacked the mall it started to liven up, the kids in the audience stopped talking and the woman put her phone away. We then saw a series of slapstick skits that really didn't work and even Jerry Lewis wouldn't do but I did hear some kids laughing. The reviewer has this one cold. It's a two start movie that might appeal to kids. Pre-teen kids that is because teens are just going to do that rolling their eyes thing. If you take your kids be sure to buy plenty of food and drinks. You're going to need something to do. Kevin James is actually a very good comic actor. He was excellent in his comody television series "King of Queens". He has kind of a Lou Costello thing going. Since he's now been in three not very funny movied maybe he'd better start looking around for Bud Abbot-or at least hold out for better scripts.
