Why It Sucks
- Very weak plot.
- Horrible acting, especially from Kevin James, Rani Rodriguez and Neal McDonough.
- Tiresome supporting characters.
- Unfunny and weak humor; compared to the original film which had some good moments of sarcastic humor.
- Forgettable and unoriginal moments.
- Actrocious puppetry for the bird, which looks absolutely fake and unrealistic.
- Completely destroys all of Paul Blart's hard-earned happiness from the ending of the original film.
- Shameless product placements (eg. Wynn Las Vegas Hotel).
- Boring and pointless slapstick.
- Lame action scenes that many films have done better.
- Some horrendous dialogue.
- The film was in development for 6 years.
- No jokes or comedy at all, compared to WIS #4.
- Suprisingly bad ending; especially compared to the original film.
- It uitimately killed the Paul Blart: Mall Cop film franchise.
- Misleading title: Despite being called Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, the first half of the film focuses more on the Wynn Las Vegas Hotel rather than the mall, which is pretty surprising considering that the first film focused on the mall.
- Exciting climax in which Paul Blart stops being a moron and takes down the bad guys, just like in the original.
- Good soundtrack.
