“Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” takes good ol’ Paul (Kevin James) to Vegas and, although feeling a bit lonely, he has barely a second to breathe! Bad guys at the hotel where he is staying plan to steal the priceless art that adorns its many walls. Paul has plenty of his own concerns, including losing a relative (hit by a milk truck) and finding out his daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) has been accepted at UCLA and will soon leave their New Jersey home. But when Maya learns of the plot to steal the art, she finds herself in hot water and it is up to Paul to forget his problems and save the day. Will he be up to the task?
The movie features a lot of slapstick violence, Paul doing some pratfalls, and a funny scene in which an aggressive bird takes Paul on and later one of the bad guys. The bird’s timing is good because Paul needs help with the villain at exactly that moment. Paul uses a taser several times in a row when the villain keeps trying to get to his feet. Due to these kinds of scenes, we are recommending the movie for ages twelve plus. This is a good one to see for a few kicks and giggles!
