PAUL BLART:  MALL COP 2 is a very funny, silly, exciting, and entertaining family movie. It’s one of those funny movies where you break out laughing.

Everything has gone wrong for Paul Blart since he saved the mall. He married a woman who left him after six days, his mother died, and now it seems his career is at an end. Things take a turn for the better when he’s invited to the Security Officer’s Conference in Las Vegas. At the same time, Blart’s daughter Mia is admitted to UCLA. She doesn’t tell her father because she wants to support his chance to recover his career.

When Blart and his daughter arrive in Las Vegas, there are hints that Blart is the conference’s keynote speaker, but he’s embarrassed when he finds out he’s not. Disappointments continue, blunders continue, mishaps continue – all with hilarious effect. Blart is a wonderful comic character in the vein of W.C. Fields, Red Skelton and Jackie Gleason.

Just when it looks that Blart has made every mistake, the keynote speaker gets drunk and is asked to Blart give the keynote. At the same time, Mia discovers that the villain is robbing the Wynn Hotel. She tries to get in touch with her father while he’s speaking, but to no avail. After his excellent, heart-warming talk, Blart finds out Mia has been kidnapped, and Paul Blart goes into action.

However, this is the same bumbling comical character who’s now on a mission to save his daughter from some very sophisticated thieves and their intimidating thugs. So, can he save the day in spite of himself?

PAUL BLART:  MALL COP 2 is full of funny slapstick comedy that tugs at the heartstrings. Blart always wants to do the right things but can’t quite do it correctly. His daughter is there to fill in the gaps. Theirs is a wonderful loving relationship.

There are a lot of covert Christian references, and there are a lot of moral statements in the movie, which Blart embodies. The humor is delightful and the action comic violence is always good natured, except for one very funny scene which may have gone over the top.

In all, PAUL BLART:  MALL COP 2 is the funniest family movie in many years.
