Paul Blart: Mall Cop: HappyMadison Strikes Again

Paul Blart: Mall Cop: Trailer 1 @ Apple Trailers

Remember Die Hard? I do too. Remember how awesome it was with Bruce Willis running around inside Nakatomi Towers blasting the crap out of evil German terrorists? Remember the evil blonde guy who wouldn't die? Blondie? And Alan Rickman? Yeah. Sweeeeet. And the quarterback is toast!!!!

Ok, so imagine Die Hard without guns, without cursing (most likely), without killing, and with Kevin James. That would be the premise of Paul Blart: Mall Cop (PB:MC) Ok Kevin James is a funny guy, his stand-up is great and even King of Queens is not bad. I don't think he can save this tongue-in-cheek style comedy on his own though. He's going to need some serious backup...and Reginald VelJohnson definitely ain't coming this time. It's doubtful that PB:MC is going to win any major critical accolades but it looks like clean humor centered around a sympathetic character which could win it some points.

I think i'm going to go watch Die Hard.
