''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.
