He's like the John McClane of mall cops! The first trailer for Paul Blart: Mall Cop has surfaced and, though the viral video for the film blew donkey balls, the trailer is surprisingly hilarious.
Mall Cop Trailer
Mall cop Paul Blart loves his job but his enthusiasm and dedication gets only contempt from his colleagues and the mall employees. Paul finally gets the respect he deserves when he thwarts Veck Sims' master plan to rob the entire mall, and in the process earns the love of kiosk owner Naomi when he saves both her and his own daughter, Maya, from the bad guys.
After watching the trailer for Mall Cop, I have to admit that I'm surprised more comedies haven't been made about mall cops. They are naturally funny. Whoever came up with the idea to add Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer to the trailer's score, I applaud you.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop opens to theaters on January 16th.
