[Kevin James] proves to be a warm leading man who grounds the movie as it morphs into a loopy heist thriller after a promising start as something entirely different: a gentle comedy of suburban underachievement.
Adam Markovitz - Entertainment Weekly
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.
Nathan Lee - New York Times
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.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
[Has] such obviously humble intentions that busting on it is a bit like harassing the junior high school outcast who just wants to eat his tater tots in peace.
Jen Chaney - Washington Post
It's unlikely that even WALL-E could bring himself to scoop up this movie and leave it on his post-apocalyptic junk heap.
Wesley Morris - Boston Globe
Perfectly inoffensive and almost entirely unfunny.
Elizabeth Weitzman - New York Daily News
Lisa Kennedy - Denver Post
Paul Blart: Mall Cop is a slapstick comedy with a hero who is a nice guy. I thought that wasn't allowed anymore.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
To call this Kevin James comedy fatuous might be misinterpreted as an attack on the star's girth -- so how about inane, tepid, lazy, puerile, phony, and unfunny?
Andrea Gronvall - Chicago Reader
The film is completely forgettable, frequently funny and weirdly satisfying in a Jersey Loser Gets Respect kind of way.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
A senseless Hollywood comedy.
Daniel Getahun - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Sensationally stupid, haphazardly made and qualifying as unmitigated trash by any standards, Paul Blart: Mall Cop also manages to be consistently hilarious, thanks to star Kevin James.
Tom Long - Detroit News
Give this to Paul Blart: Mall Cop: It delivers on everything it promises. Which is to say, nearly nothing.
Bill Goodykoontz - Arizona Republic
An almost shockingly amateurish one-note-joke comedy on which the star also shares writing and producing credit.
Brian Lowry - Variety
Laughs occasionally ensue.
Kyle Smith - New York Post
The thin comic appeal of Kevin James is laid on a bit thicker in Paul Blart: Mall Cop, his first solo star vehicle for the big screen.
Roger Moore - Orlando Sentinel
It's surprisingly okay, in a January kind of way.
Peter Howell - Toronto Star
Christine Champ - Film.com
James, at his best when he lets loose, plays his character a little too straight and so loses some of the movie's comic potential.
Jennie Punter - Globe and Mail
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.
Dana Stevens - Slate
It's a juvenile motion picture designed primarily for a juvenile audience. But there's a little more here than one might reasonably expect.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
Like the movie's sad-sack hero, this comedy never comes close to achieving its real potential.
Kirk Honeycutt - Hollywood Reporter
[James] plays yet another misfit, but one who's so two-dimensional, needy (and frankly annoying) that it's difficult to root for him.
Christy Lemire - Associated Press
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
[The film] oo often settles for easy, lazy jokes, most of which revolve around either food or running into stuff.
Glenn Whipp - Los Angeles Times
Hank Sartin - Time Out

Dave White - Movies.com
Doesn't offer anything new but it is an ample addition to the comedy genre, and after a mostly rip-roaring 91 minutes, you'll understand how the film did so well in America.
Sam Bathe - Fan The Fire
...a hopelessly underwhelming comedy...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Unfunny, unoriginal and tedious - Mall Cop is successful only at living up to the standard set by past films that have begun with the words 'A Happy Madison Production'.
Anders Wotzke - Cut Print Review
Anders Wotzke - Moviedex
It's only almost the making of a comedy classic.
Rob Humanick - Projection Booth
The title and premise alone sound like every stupid comedy you've avoided for decades. Something was different %u2013 something was done right. Three other friends shared my secret shame enjoying this amiable, broad %u2013 and subtle %u2013 romantic act
Karina Montgomery - Cinerina
About ten times funnier than the similarly-themed Observe & Report, though this silly, slapstick adventure is aimed more at kids than adults.
Kam Williams - NewsBlaze
An unfunny comedy with a limited imagination and a steady diet of fat jokes.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
The numerous making-of featurettes includes a treat for those of us in eastern Massachusetts with the Burlington Mall highlighted...
Robin Clifford - Reeling Reviews
...a genial, inoffensive little comedy that coasts on the charm of its "King of Queens" star James...
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
What's most disappointing here is that Kevin James appears capable of far more rich and subtle comedy than he's ever likely to be part of in a Happy Madison production.
Brian Webster - Apollo Guide
Y si, basicamente se trata de reirse del gordo. Pero como es el propio gordo quien sirve la broma, uno no se siente tan culpable y se rie con el.
Enrique Buchichio - Uruguay Total
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.
Jim Schembri - The Age (Australia)
There's no doubt that James is a fine comedic actor and the role of Paul Blart fits his big frame like a well worn glove. As writers, however, he and Bakay rely too heavily on slapstick...
Andrew J. McGlinn - FILMINK (Australia)
I found myself really quite enjoying this film, partly for its cheerful guying of mall culture. The heroine, Amy, works on a hair extension stand called Unbeweavable.
Julie Rigg - MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Men of a certain size will love Paul Blart - and his pursuit through the centre is remarkably inventive. Truly for all the family.
Victor Olliver - Teletext
Although juvenile, predictable and utterly forgettable, has an endearing central character in Kevin James
Louise Keller - Urban Cinefile
With only some scattershot scenes of physical humor, 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' does little to keep viewers safe from boredom.
Dan Lybarger - eFilmCritic.com
to my surprise, once the action part of the story kicked in, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" transformed into a rather enjoyable comic adventure.
Sean McBride - Sean the Movie Guy
An 'arresting' comedy. James' best work.
Clint Morris - Moviehole
Paul Blart: Mall Cop is a tongue-planted-firmly-in-cheek force to be reckoned with.
Bruce Bennett - Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
