-->-- '''Det. Nichols''', ''Observe and Report''

''Observe and Report'' (2009) is a ''very'' dark comedy starring Seth Rogen as a delusional mall security guard who becomes obsessed with catching a flasher. Being released 3 months after the [[ComedyGhetto PG-rated]] ''PaulBlartMallCop'', the films have drawn inevitable [[DuelingMovies comparisons]] to each other.

-->-- '''Det. Nichols''', ''Observe and Report''

a quote that sums up the movie pretty well.

''Observe and Report'' (2009) is a ''very'' dark comedy written/directed by [[Series/EastboundAndDown Jody Hill]] and starring Seth Rogen as a bipolar, delusional mall security guard who becomes obsessed with catching a flasher. Being released 3 months after the [[ComedyGhetto PG-rated]] ''PaulBlartMallCop'', the films have drawn inevitable [[DuelingMovies comparisons]] to each other.

* KarmaHoudini: Much like in ''TaxiDriver,'' Ronnie narrowly escapes punishment for his crimes by managing to become a hero at the last minute. Also, [[spoiler: Dennis robs the mall frequently, gets Ronnie to beat kids for skateboarding on mall property, and ends up knocking Ronnie out and stealing a car to flee. The last we hear of him has him partying in Mexico.]]

* DuelingMovies: This film and ''Paul Blart Mall Cop'', created completely independently, as most dueling films are.



* PlayingAgainstType: While Rogen has played jerks before, he earned his fame playing likable schlubs. Many viewers expected Ronnie to be along a similar line, rather than the seriously disturbed man that he is.

* BlackComedyRape: Brandi is possibly blackout drunk yet Ronnie has no qualms with having sex with her. CrossesTheLineTwice when she asks, "Why are you stopping, motherfucker?" Though due to Ronnie's state of mind and Brandi's sexual appetite, whether or not it was rape is debatable.
