Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)
Paul Blart is just your average mall security guard with dreams bigger than roaming through retail heaven for any disturbances. After failing the requisite tests to become a member of the police force, Blart realizes he must prove himself as a security guard to build a solid reputation.
Well, that chance appears on Black Friday, when a group of crooks take over the mall, drive everyone out, and hold a few hostage. Unknown to anyone else, Blart is still left in the mall, and by accident too.
Among the hostages is Blart’s teen daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) and love interest Amy Anderson (Jayma Mays). Now it’s up to an unathletic, amateur security guard to take down a group of skilled, athletic crooks along with their kingpin. The fate of the West Orange Pavilion Mall rests on Blart’s hands and watch as the often-mocked security guard takes on an assignment that could make him famous!
Bobby Cannavale, Erick Avari, Adhir Kalyan, and Keir O’Donnell also star in the movie.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 (2015)
The bumbling Paul Blart is back in this sequel, as he now heads to a special security guard convention in Las Vegas for a bit of relaxation. This also affords Blart the opportunity to meet fellow security guards and converse about their lifestyle.
Blart remains at peace with his decision to visit Vegas with his daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez). Nevertheless, a scheme is brewing inside their Wynn Las Vegas hotel as a group of thieves, led by Vincent Sofel (Neal McDonough), plan to snatch valuable art pieces.
After Maya is taken hostage by a gaggle of goons (again), the clumsy security guard is once again back on the job and steadfast on saving the security convention, his daughter, and the precious art. This time, Blart has got an arsenal right behind him, the security guard “dream team” if you will. Watch as Kevin James’ comical character tackles another case!
The movie also stars Nicholas Turturro, Gary Valentine, David Henrie, Daniella Alonso, and Loni Love.
