All I know about that guy is that he was in a sitcom with a wife who was way out of his league.

That's 80% of sitcoms.  Need more data.

Does Subby even realize that Paul Blart is a character and not the actor?

His YouTube channel is gold. If you haven't seen it.... you're welcome.

His skits are hilarious.

So we should celebrate fat lazy white dudes with no skills and a strong desire to serve in authoritarian roles? Yeah, no, fark all of that noise.

the epitome of a middling Kevin James comedy

Is there any other kind of Kevin James comedy?

Seconded.
Paul Blart was ... Meh. I can't even call it "stupid-fun." But Kevin James is a funny, funny man.

I'd toss in Scent of a Woman.

Also this is a really lame attempt to turn Paul Blart into the Die Hard of Thanksgiving movies.

OK, but only after I get a Slatesplaination detailing who exactly is the governing body empowered to bestow such a distinction . . .

That has been a favorite line of mine since I first watched the film.

My wife is way out of my league, and I live in Queens...


Also Planes Trains and Automobiles is a masterpiece.  I've never even seen the blart thing.

I didn't think this would be the headline to finally make say "Man, fark you, Slate" in an obnoxiously loud tone, but here we are.

Christ, it's not even a so bad it's good movie. It's just bad. I'm going to get lump check out on Friday and I'm pretty sure I got it from Paul Blart
 
2020-11-25 2:43:17 PM  
Only because the sci-fi channel has somehow NOT gotten around to making a movie about a flock of mutant man eating turkeys versus a family of inbred, deformed hillbillies.

Tried watching that a year or so ago. Unfunniest film I have ever seen. John Candy's character is just annoying and Steve Martin's just tedious. We got about 30 minutes in (I think a motel was involved) then gave up.

I think this film was when I realized exactly how tired I was of the "lowed expectations" lead character type.

King of Queens- good show with some mediocre episodes, especially near the end of the run.

Paul Blart- wanted my money back. And I think our tickets were free. That bad.

That's the truth.

Someone else on Fark introduced me to her movie reviews.  She's watching a bunch of classic films for the first time.

Head...he's overweight, but it's amazing what a bit of paint and spackle can do to make someone look attractive.
