DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy (Dark) - Despite the similarity in premise to Paul Blart: Mall Cop and the advertising campaign, this is a very dark, downbeat, and edgy comedy, and one definitely not for children. Those sensitive to explicit nudity, suggestive gags, harsh language, and violent content should steer clear.

Critic's Review Heading

USA Today Full Review
Above Average When Observe and Report is funny, it's often shockingly so. The characters can be nasty or self-absorbed, yet they still have a whiff of sweetness. The bipolar Ronnie sometimes seems in dire need of psychiatric care. Other times he's pathetic. The humor wanes when sad moments overtake the absurd.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 40 moviegoers:
TEENS:Oddly enough, only one of the three males really enjoyed it. The other two rated it only "Good/Average," which is just an OK review. Both of the females loved it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from the males and almost great reviews from the females. Unfortunately, they had a couple who didn't care for it.
ADULTS:Both the males and the females enjoyed "Observe and Report" very much. There were a few males who didn't care for it but most rated it high to very high. Same for the ladies. Most of them enjoyed it but some didn't.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At the Forest Ridge Mall, head of security Ronnie Barnhardt patrols his jurisdiction with an iron fist, combating skateboarders, shoplifters and the occasional unruly customer while dreaming of the day when he can swap his flashlight for a badge and a gun. His delusions of grandeur are put to the test when the mall is struck by a flasher. Driven to protect and serve the mall and its patrons, Ronnie seizes the opportunity to showcase his underappreciated law enforcement talents on a grand scale, hoping his solution of this crime will earn a coveted spot at the police academy and the heart of his elusive dream girl Brandi, the hot make-up counter clerk who won't give him the time of day. But his single-minded pursuit of glory launches a turf war with the equally competitive Detective Harrison of the Conway Police, and Ronnie is confronted with the challenge of not only catching the flasher, but getting him before the real cops do.
