So, today I went to the movie theaters on my own with my sister. (Wait, is that really on my own, then?) It was my first time driving to some place other than school without my parents, so.. yeah. Tomo missed seeing the movie with her friends on Saturday, so I told her I’d make up for it by taking her today, which I did. We invited Wendy to come with us. ^^
We went to watch Paul Blart: Mall Cop. It was great! I love the comedy aspect of it all. There were so many funny bits.
I really liked how Veck (is that his name?) is introduced in the beginning as a rookie who dropped out of highschool and such, and immediatelyhe is exasperated with Paul’s mall cop duties. (Seriously, pulling a man on a motorized wheelchair over like he was a speeding car? Then getting beat up by the scary lady in Victoria’s Secret). I really didn’t think Veck would have much of a part in the story. Like, his name was only introduced really briefly, and he just randomly appeared at various spots out of nowhere like a no-face guy. Heck, he (sort-of) defended Paul when he told off the pen salesman, and was there to watch Paul try to eat more nachos than the other big guy.
Then when the mall was being taken over by those delinquents, he just HAD to be there at the bank with Amy and the pen salesman, too. Really, I thought him no more than just a nobody, and he turns out to be the leader. Heck, and just moments before that, I thought it would be funny if he and Amy ended up together instead of Paul and Amy. I actually liked the idea of that pairing because they looked good together, not that Paul isn’t a good guy. Ah, and then he hit on her, making a mention of Bonnie and Clyde, whose names I recognize but never bothered with that bit of history.
That said, I didn’t like the ending that much. I mean, I liked it, but Paul ending up with Amy, although obvious, was kind of strange to me. They didn’t go out or anything, and yet they went and got married. o_O Sure, he saved a lot of lives, but is that enough of a reason to wed? Paul isn’t even ugly for a big fellow who is a lost cause, too. I felt bad for him in the movie because he really had a big heart and all, but when you’re big-boned/fat, people judge you just like that, however mean that is. )X
I still don’t get why Amy was wearing that short black crew cut wig. Must be an advertisement for her store. In any case, I don’t think Amy had much of a personality. Or at least, she didn’t show much with Paul. She had some odd way of showing sarcasm towards the pen salesman and Veck, and she just simply showed disgust when Paul approaches her the night after he got tipsy. How old was she, anyway? She talked about texting all the time like she was a teen or something @_@;
I like Paul’s relationship with his daughter. She cares a lot about him, and I was wondering why she looked different from her dad! I normally disapprove of fathers who divorce their wives, but in this case, the mother left him for a horrible reason, so it’s okay. ^^; Tomo says she’s seen the girl who plays the daughter before on Disney’s Suite Life of Zack and Cody.
Paul having random tattoos on his back was funny, too. It was funny at first, but funnier the second time because the producers haven’t forgotten about it. (X And when he fainted while talking to Veck on the intercom was funny. His attempt to blow dirt off the lollipop was so futile, I had to laugh out loud.
Ah, I really liked the SWAT leader guy’s voice. Nice and strong. Who would have known he was on the same side as the mall bandits? I missed the reason why he got shot at in the end, but Wendy told me it was because he was about ot shoot Paul? The part where he got arrested amazed me. It was the old man who is the head of the mall cops who shot at him and not the police chief! And the police chief with a mole just saunters over to the SWAT guy and arrests him. That was amusing.
Those two police guys are funny for being not very important. First the old guy’s list of “comebacks” that could be used to tell off the SWAT guy, but that didn’t work, and then the police chief’s ability to come up with a good comeback in the end. Oh, and the broken communication between the mall cop chief and Paul and the SWAT guy was golden. I guess he didn’t want to talk to Mr. SWAT.
I couldn’t help but wonder what of the guy who lent him his daughter’s phone’s daughter phone after Paul threw it at the ground. I mean, he was borrowing that! Oh, and the guy’s daughter’s ex-boyfriend is so creepy, but his accent was funny. XD
Anyway, afterwards, Tomo and I went to church to help mom pass out food to the poor people, and that was all for today.
