Unmemorable, unfunny and unoriginal.
May 6, 2011
In places the plot sags a bit and some jokes don't quite hit their mark or tickle the funny bone as much as they're obviously meant to.

Shoot me now!

James makes a funny, likeable doofus, and the expansion of his girth since his hit sitcom The King of Queens is used to great comic effect.
January 20, 2009
This isn't brain surgery; this is daffy entertainment that plays to its strengths, with director Steve Carr trusting in James' deadpan earnesty
January 20, 2009
Once you've seen about the first 20 minutes of the movie, you've got a sense of what all of the jokes were going to be.
January 20, 2009
James gives it everything he's got, totally committing to the character and delivering clean comedy which often times is often more difficult than creating just a raunch-fest.
January 18, 2009
A couple of Segway jokes stretched to an hour and a half running time.

The last name Blart may be the funniest thing in the movie, so that's a hint as to just how bad this shopping-center saga can be.
January 16, 2009
It's surprisingly okay, in a January kind of way.
January 16, 2009
As cheapo larks go, it's a winningly unassuming one: no stars, no big action set pieces. Just a fat guy, a near-empty mall, and a lot of really ridiculous ideas.
January 16, 2009
It's just not particularly funny. That Segway, alas, only goes so far.
January 16, 2009
Paul Blart tepidly goes through its motions, but that doesn't mean you have to.
January 16, 2009
Just as James struggles to make unfunny material tolerable, so too does the supporting cast fall flat.

I suppose the food equivalent would be that nacho cheese that comes in a can with little chunks of jalapeo mixed in.
January 16, 2009
Directed by Steve Carr, a man who knows how to put a camera in front of things, if little else, and written, sort of, by Nick Bakay and Mr. James.
January 16, 2009
It's a juvenile motion picture designed primarily for a juvenile audience. But there's a little more here than one might reasonably expect.
January 16, 2009
Laughs occasionally ensue.
January 16, 2009
Perfectly inoffensive and almost entirely unfunny.
January 16, 2009
[The film] oo often settles for easy, lazy jokes, most of which revolve around either food or running into stuff.
