Day 16: The Mall Cop Genre

New-To-Me Movies: 5

Apparently this year the "Mall Cop" movie became a genre of its own.  I did not see Paul Blart: Mall Cop.  But, I can say that Observe and Report was pretty darn good.

This movie manages to be entirely sick and twisted without feeling sick and twisted.  Does that make any sense?  Observe and Report very easily could have been juvenile, depressing, far too creepy or all three.  You have to give Seth Rogen a lot of credit for taking this psychologically disturbed security guard and making him more than a joke but an at times likable/relatable character. 

This movie is a daring comedy, and those are few and far between.  Bravo.

Oh and Beard:
