Previous film: Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a 2015 American action comedy film directed by Andy Fickman and written by Kevin James and Nick Bakay. It is the sequel to 2009's Paul Blart: Mall Cop.


Taking place six years after the first film, Paul Blart is invited to a security officers' convention in Las Vegas.

Why It Sucks

  1. Very weak plot.
  2. Horrible acting, especially from Kevin James, Rani Rodriguez and Neal McDonough.
  3. Tiresome supporting characters.
  4. Unfunny and weak humor; compared to the original film which had some good moments of sarcastic humor.
  5. Forgettable and unoriginal moments.
  6. Actrocious puppetry for the bird, which looks absolutely fake and unrealistic.
  7. Completely destroys all of Paul Blart's hard-earned happiness from the ending of the original film.
  8. Shameless product placements (eg. Wynn Las Vegas Hotel).
  9. Boring and pointless slapstick.
  10. Lame action scenes that many films have done better.
  11. Some horrendous dialogue.
  12. The film was in development for 6 years.
  13. No jokes or comedy at all, compared to WIS #4.
  14. Suprisingly bad ending; especially compared to the original film.
  15. It uitimately killed the Paul Blart: Mall Cop film franchise.
  16. 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.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Exciting climax in which Paul Blart stops being a moron and takes down the bad guys, just like in the original.
  2. Good soundtrack.


The film received much worse reviews than it's prequel. The film holds a critic approval rating of 5%, and an audience approval rating of 34% on Rotten Tomatoes. The critic consensus reads: "Bathed in flop sweat bereft of purpose, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 stings together fat-shaming humor and Segway sight gags with uniformly unfunny results." On Metacritic, the film has a critic score of 13 out of 100, based on 16 critics, indicating "overwhelming dislike", while the audience score is a 2.5/10. On IMDb, the average rating is a 4.4/10.

Well, the first one was bad in a mega-funny way, while the second was just plain bad.
