Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2

THE FILM

The Squeeze: Jeremy Sumpter stars as Augie, a character (inspired by longtime local golf figure Keith Flatt) from a small town whose golfing skills land him in some high-stakes craziness.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2: The highly anticipated sequel to 2009’s Paul Blart: Mall Cop, known best as the only comedy movie about being a mall security guard that’s not quite as funny as the title of the movie.

THE TRAILER

The Squeeze: Looks like a cross between Tin Cup and He Got Game, but the presence of Christopher McDonald (Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore) in another golf movie is a little distracting.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2: It has Blart (Kevin James) vacationing in Vegas, fist-fighting an exotic bird and springing into unlikely action, Die Hard-style.

The Squeeze

HOW MUCH WYNN

The Squeeze: Just a little, but the trailer does feature Augie smacking a tee shot that seems to scale the side of the hotel tower’s beautiful bronzeness. The Squeeze was the first independent film to shoot at Wynn.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2: A lot ... maybe too much. Blart rides a Segway through lavish halls and belly-slides across gleaming marble floors, gut-punches a housekeeper in a suite and zip-lines between the Wynn and Encore towers. It’s not Godzilla’s full-on Strip trashing, but it’s close.

The Squeeze Jeremy Sumpter, Christopher McDonald, Jillian Murray. Directed by Terry Jastrow. Rated PG-13. Opens Friday; also available on VOD.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Kevin James, Raini Rodriguez, Neal McDonough. Directed by Andy Fickman. Rated PG. Opens Friday.
