Twin Films: Movies With Basically The Same Plot Released In The Same Year
Paul Blart: Mall Cop | Observe and Report — 2009
Paul Blart: Mall Cop Box Office: $146,336,178
Observe and Report Box Office: $24,007,324
These movies may have the same premise, but one clearly came out on top! Both films focus on silly mall cops who have to contend with trouble in their malls. Kevin James plays the bumbling, dopey Paul Blart who fights a bunch of crooks who threaten to take over his mall. Seth Rogen also plays a mall cop trying to overcome trouble in his mall (this time a wild flasher) but with more of a stoner twist. It is a Seth Rogen movie! But, it’s clear that fans were only interested in one mall cop movie and that was Paul Blart!
