About the Movie

Bargain hunters at Forest Ridge Mall get more than they bargained for: a chubby flasher in a ratty bathrobe. They're repulsed. Security guard Ronnie Barnhardt isn't: "This disgusting pervert is the best thing that ever happened to me!" Catching the flasher may be his ticket to a real police job and to romance with a hot cosmetics-counter princess. Only one thing stands between Ronnie and destiny: a tall, handsome cop who actually knows what he's doing. Seth Rogen (Knocked Up), Anna Faris (the Scary Movie series) and Ray Liotta (GoodFellas) star in this mall-to-wall comedy covering acres of wild, sometimes raunchy, up-in-your-grill funny - all under one roof.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It falls short of brilliant but it's a lot more daring than what passes for 'dark comedy' these days, and it reminds us that 'feel bad' comedies may not always be as funny as 'feel good' ones but, when they work, they can ultimately be more satisfying. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: I don't think it's much of a comedy. The darkness overpowers everything. – Ben Mankiewicz, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: You don't relate or enjoy watching Seth Rogen's character on screen. – Ben Lyons, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If you enjoy this film, it might just be time to examine the stability of your own psychological wellbeing. I loved Observe and Report, and that's a terrifying reality I have to deal with. – Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, Oct 21, 2014
