What’s the difference between Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Observe and Report? Well, Observe and Report has Seth Rogen in it, and Paul Blart: Mall Cop has a scene with the main character eating an old piece of candy that he found on the floor because he’s hypoglycemic. Also, the latter is slightly more tolerable, even with the floor-candy scene, because the Paul Blart character is likeable since he cares about others.
They’re both movies about mall security guards who want to be cops, they are each infatuated with women way out of their leagues who work in their respective malls, and they have to overcome challenges, and in the end they learn to appreciate their jobs as security guards. Even though my husband is responsible for me watching both movies, he chose to buy the worse out of the two. At least he saw the value in not buying the same movie twice.
