Synopsis: When a shopping mall is overtaken by a gang of organized crooks, it's up to the a mild-mannered, chubby security guard (Kevin James) to save the day and finally prove to everyone he's not just a loser.
I always liked the show King of Queens and think Kevin James plays a great, likable doofus, but I was a little disappointed that this film didn't deliver more laughs. It brings the funny occasionally, but a lot of it attempts for slapstick type humor and it's tough to sustain the laughs with that all the way through. Also, it's extremely predictable.
That's the bad, but is there any good? Well like I said it does have some funny moments, and kids will probably laugh a lot more at the silliness of it all than adults. And speaking of kids, they can actually watch this comedy because it's all good-natured type humor and never relies on filthiness like a lot more newer comedies do. James is good as usual, although I think he could have used some help and they didn't really surround him with anyone to play off of.
Sure it's dumb but it knows that and never really tries to be more than that. I never found it boring and although I'll probably forget it rather quickly, it sustained my interest for 90 minutes just fine. Don't expect too much and this goofy, action-comedy might be alright for you. I didn't roll in the floor laughing but I did stay awake the whole time.
* Bonus... for fellow KISS fans, Blart rocks out to Detroit Rock City while playing a Guitar Hero game of sorts. I added 1/2 a point to my rating for this.
