Movie Review: Paul Blart Mall Cop 2

Why make a second one of this movie? The first one had some physical laughs but overall was rather depressing because the main characters life was so pathetic. In this new movie, some 6 years later, Paul Blart’s life is even worse. His wife, who he married at the end of the last movie left him after a week and then they show his mother being killed when a car drove by her house while she was picking up the paper. Is this funny? Is it funny to see an old woman run over by a car? What am I missing?

The bottom line is that its not enough just to have some physical stunts and funny faces in a comedy movie there has to be more than that, and this movie has nothing more than some physical stunts and no laughs.

Avoid this rather bad sequel to the first Paul Blart movie.
