"Mall Cop" is Second Best MLK Weekend Opener

Posted: January 19th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Mall Cop" is Second Best MLK Weekend OpenerSubmit Comment
ComingSoon is reporting that the Kevin James comedy "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" ended up bringing in the second highest take for the four-day Martin Luther King Jr weekend. The film earned an estimated $39 million from 3,144 theaters. That's an average of $12,405 per theater.

"Mall Cop" easily surpassed the 2001 "Black Hawk Down ($33.6 million), but fell short of beating the number one MLK weekend film "Cloverfield" ($46.1 million). While "Hawk" cost $92 million to make, both "Mall Cop" and "Cloverfield" worked with a budget of only about $25 million.

If this keeps up, "Mall Cop" could earn as much as $100 million domestically, which means that there might be a chance for a sequel.

lol. I guess even stupid people need a good laugh. And I wonder if they chose his highly unusual surname deliberately to rhyme with fart. Anyway, according the Urban Dictionary, whatever the f*ck that is, a blart is "a fart with blood in it. When you strain to fart, blood sprays into your underwear". So, I guess this movie really rocks, huh?

I can't believe people ACTUALLY went to see this!!!!! There's always better things to do than go see a movie that looks this stupid! Why see this movie when you could something like "Valkerie" or "Benjamin Button"?

I also think "Happy Madison" could've done better than this.... I mean, this movie was made by the comp. that did such classic movies like "Happy Gilmore" and "Big Daddy"!
