has managed to bring in some 83 million dollars in the past three weeks. In light of the grim economic outlook January’s movie revenues are a surprise to the industry. North American ticket sales are up 20% compared to the same time last year and ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop’ is a large part of that improved number. I hear security guards are none to pleased with the film, but America seems to be loving it. I’ll admit when I saw the trailer I was like “what in the segway riding mustachioed hell?!” But once I learned it was set in the dirty jerz I had to support it.
Kudos to Kevin James. In step with Michael Cera he’s slowly changing the “leading man” stereotype and ‘King of Queens’ reruns are still hilarious.
