verb: Paul Blart. usage: "dude that is so paul blart i can't even tell you"

on principle, i refuse to see bad movies... just can't. no, i won't.

these movies are a few among those that i might consider "sunk cost":
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) (maybe i dated a guy once that claimed this as his favorite film. maybe i made a mini doc about it)
Now You See Him, Now You Don't (1972)
Mom & Dad Save the World 1992) (but sadly, we always watched this crap growing up...)
Spice World (1997) (g-ma loved it. probably wouldn't admit to it now though...)
Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 (2000) (goes without explanation, though you dont need to see it to be sure. this was the former verb btw)
Atlantis (2001) (maybe we weren't allowed to talk about this movie at the Disney Store when i worked there... yes, that bad.)
Miss Congeniality 2 (2005) (the only movie i have walked out of. painful)
Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) (hurt my soul more than it will ever know...)

we love you Kevin James,
but that movie, was so Paul Blart.

and, if I find the producers of that film in a darkened alleyway, I cannot be held responsible for what happens to them...

that was a serious waste of the overpriced movie ticket...
and yes, the movie doesn't even deserve a review....

by all means, if you have a 5yr-old who will growl through half the dead parts, or a big man to shout "oh no!" at the one crazy didn't-see-it-coming-at-all plot twist.... it might be entertaining for you.... otherwise... totally Paul Blart.

the company, on the other hand, was seriously choice.
