Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Paul Blart: Mall CopThis wasn’t a horrible movie, exactly. It was what I expected. Funny in parts, but nothing special. It’s a date movie, at best. I like Kevin James, but I don’t think anyone is likely to remember this movie as a comedy classic.
All that said, the movie had its moments. While I’m not keen to admit it, there were times that I found myself laughing out loud. Sadly, though, every time I found myself letting go enough to enjoy the movie, something would happen to remind me of just how rediculous the whole thing was. Was I expecting too much? Probably. Maybe I grew up in a golden age of comedy, because I just don’t get how these new movies are funny.
Of course, I’m sure someone was saying that when I was young, about Cheech & Chong, Richard Pryor and Robin Williams. Maybe I’m old, and I just don’t get the jokes. Or maybe it’s just that modern comedies are so painfully dull that if you’ve seen the previews before you go into the theater, you’ve already seen all the best bits in the movies.
