    . . . I will see it - Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 - In Theaters 4/17/15 (a ways off).

    I love Kevin James' comedy and I love movies with the Vegas backdrop. The trailer is hilar!

    I just watched the trailer...it does look like it has some funny parts. Definitely worth a look in my opinion.

    Opens tomorrow. I like Vegas movies, but I think I draw the line with Paul Blart Mall Cop 2.

    Currently 0% on rotten tomatoes, with only 7 reviews - which means it probably wasn't screened for critics. I wonder what the fandango presales are like...

    The first was one a big box office hit though. 19th highest grossing film of 2009. And all while opening in January in the middle of The Great Recession.

    I think it will do well because its opening in the summer - Sony probably feels confident enough to throw it into the busy season.

    I have every intention of seeing it, or even possibly having it on my computer to watch on my flight to Vegas (not that I support piracy). My son and I seen the first one and he loved it and I think this one will be just as entertaining. Will I go tomorrow, I doubt it, but I hope to see it soon.

    I will wait until next Tuesday when tickets are only $5 at our local theater. I think it will be worth seeing for that price. If nothing else, I will get to see a lot of Vegas backdrops. I'll even bring my own Sno-Caps!

    Usually for movies like these I will wait for the DVD. I feel it's not worth it (for me) to go to the theater to see it.

    Movies that have great action and special effects potential I MIGHT consider going to the theater....

    This is the only movie I can recall that got a zero on Rotten Tomatoes.

    There is only about 15 or so minutes in the total movie showing Vegas but it was funny and stupid at the same time. It was about like the first one overall all

    Aside from seeing some Vegas, I thought the trailer was nothing short of stupid.
    The sad part is, those were probably the only real funny parts in the whole thing.

    Did we really need another Paul Blart movie?
    I agree with Mike, to DVD in a quick short time.

    Actually, the Kevin James movie I'm waiting for is "King Of Queens - Backstage", in which Leah Remini somehow explains to us losers how a lardass Fed Ex guy was able to get into her pants for all those years.

    One of the more recent zeros was Saving Christmas, once the worst rated movie on imdb (1.6 rating).

    I think there's usually a queue on Netflix for the DVD (its not on instant watch) because people want to see how bad it really is.

    This was the 1st movie that Wynn allowed a film to be filmed in the Wynn. My understanding is that there isn't a lot of Vegas to see.

    My kid loved it, he's 10. Not much exterior Vegas shots, he only leaves the hotel for one fast motion view of the strip from the ne corner at Caesars looking south. some Wynn public places And some le reve.
