YMMV: Paul Blart: Mall Cop
  • Critical Dissonance: Though fans of the movie are quick to admit it's hardly a contender for the best movie of all time, it certainly didn't deserve the amount of panning certain reviewers gave it, except for Roger Ebert, He gave it three out of four stars.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny:
    • "I BELIEVE IN MAGIC-!" *crashs through window*
    • "Nobody wins with a headbutt."
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Happy birthday, Amy!" Especially the dedication.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The pounding classic rock songs used when Paul rocks out in the arcade, and later when he changes clothes.
  • So Okay, It's Average: One of the main criticisms directed at the film.
  • Tear Jerker: The dating site scene, while played for laughs, underscores how desperately lonely Blart is.
  • The Woobie: Blart has elements of this in some scenes, especially the dating website scenes.
