Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2


(NOTE: I was recently hospitalized for four days. So I did what I did the last time I was there: I watched movies from the small selection they offered. This was an opportunity to take in some that I normally would have passed on. And just as last time, I found they were all movies I was wise to have skipped. At least they didn’t make me any sicker. This is one.)

If there was ever a movie the Universe was not crying out to be made, this is the one. I didn’t see the first, but the reviews were not kind. The buzz on this one was absolutely vicious, and with good reason. There is nothing funny here. I was going to say that Adam Sandler now has some real competition in the production of hateful, moronic, laugh-free movies, but then I found out this is a Happy Madison Production, and the lack of brains behind Happy is … you guessed it. Put it on your list of movies you would rather have a tooth extraction through your rectum, without anesthetic, than have to sit through.
