PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 PG
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 69 moviegoers: 
CHILDREN: Nearly all of them loved "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2."
TEENS: Six of the seven males loved this movie as did all nine of the females.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: One female loved it and one rated it just "average," as did the lone male.
ADULTS: As you can clearly see, the reviews go down as the age of the moviegoer increases. Adult reviews vary widely. About half the males and two-thirds of the females REALLY ENJOYED "PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2," with many indicating they loved it. However, as can be expected with these silly little comedies, a large percentage felt it was only an "average" movie. Equally important is the fact that NO ONE DISLIKED this movie.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this action comedy. Kids and parents will probably enjoy the most. Males and females will enjoy about equally.

Average critic rating:
Poor (NY Post)

UNFRIENDED R
Moviegoer Opinions:
Based on a theater exit polling of 29 moviegoers: 
TEENS: The two males rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. This is obviously a movie that appeals to the ladies since 14 gave a review and half enjoyed it very much with close to 30% indicating they loved "Unfriended." As with all horror type movies there are many who didn't enjoy it all that much. About 35% felt it was only an "average" movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male and three of the five females, didn't enjoy "Unfriended." This is clearly not a movie for those past their teen years.
ADULTS: These are not good reviews from adults, both males and females. This is clearly a movie that only appeals to teens and primarily females.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before opinions)
Reactions will be good for this horror movie, with the best marks coming from the target of older teens and young adults. Males and females will enjoy about equally, but younger viewers will prefer over older ones.

Average critic rating:
Above Average (Berardinelli, Internet Critic)
Poor (Roger Ebert)
Good (USA Today)
Good (Entertainment Weekly)
