New DVD Debut: Observe and Report, Ghost of Girlfriends Past

Seth Rogen is one of the most appealing comics working today. So why they hell would you make a movie in which he’s an irredeemable jerk? His mall rent-a-cop is yet another dimwit with an overblown sense of his own importance. (See any Ben Stiller movie.) When a flasher strikes, it’s a chance for his violent tendencies and libido to run wild. This exercise in sourness skips no chance to remind you how stupid people can be. As such, it makes Paul Blart Mall Cop look like a Woody Allen movie.
