5.0 out of 5 stars Future Cult Classic, I reckon. 11 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Reading some of the reviews here, you'd think this film is super-sick..but don't be put off-it's actually kind of cuddly. Ok, so it's definitely dark but it's also got a lot of heart- and it's bloody good. The Oldboy sequence is jawdropping, some of the jokes are killer, and it's very well made and acted. I think the problem a lot of people have with this is that it's pretty original, like a funny Taxi Driver. A proper movie. If you're looking for a family comedy or another Anchorman you'd better head elsewhere, but if you liked The Foot Fist Way you're gonna LOVE this.

'Observe and Report' was theatrically released in 2009 to mixed critical acclaim and moderate box-office success.

The movie tells the story of Ronnie Barnhardt (Seth Rogen) who suffers from Bipolar disorder. He works at a shopping mall as head security guard but aspires to be a Police Officer. A flasher starts exposing himself to shoppers at the mall, which causes Barnhardt to make it his mission to catch him.

'Observe and Report' is similar to 'Paul Blart - Mall Cop', which is a family light-hearted comedy that released a few months before the former and was a very successful at the box-office. The similarities are, the lead actors in both movies work as security guards in a mall and aspire to be Police Officers. Apart from these similarities both movies are totally different and should not be compared with each other.

It is hard to class the theme of 'Observe and Report' as it is a dark & mature movie with a hint of comedy and is high in emotions. The way I understood the movie was by looking at it from the view of Ronnie as he experiences all kinds of emotions due to his Bipolar disorder. He experiences everything from love, happiness, anger, disappointment to violence. That is what, we as an audience experience and are left with mixed emotions. As a result a lot of the viewers were not sure how to take the movie.

The movie is really entertaining and has a good screenplay, which keeps your attention up until the satisfying ending. The movie is also funny when it should be and appropriately emotional.

Seth Rogen produces his finest performance as he brilliantly expresses the mixed emotions that his character experiences. His touching performance elevates the movies status from average to good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Travis Bickle: Mall Cop 2 May 2009
Format:DVD
This is comedy in the darkest shade of black. Observe And Report observes and reports on the life of the tragically flawed character that is Ronnie Barnhardt, from the minute his mall becomes the target of a flasher operating in the car park. Ronnie leaps into action when the flasher targets the subject of his wildest dreams - trashy mall beautician Brandi - which also marks the beginning of his feud with Detective Harrison, sent out to deal with the situation.

Seth Rogen, familiar to many from his shlubby lovable loser characters in Judd Apatow's films, swings completely to the dark side in this role as bipolar Ronnie, which is probably his finest performance so far. He continues to carry out his mall duties obsessively, dealing out his own brand of justice, as he spars with Ray Liotta's Harrison - Harrison just wants to do his job, but is gradually driven to despair by Ronnie's continual ignorance, nuisance, and presence. Michael Peña is particularly hilarious as Dennis, Ronnie's 'right hand man' in mall security, and his performance is perhaps the only one you don't feel dirty inside for laughing at.

Be aware that this is definitely NOT a family movie though - it's not too graphic, apart from a prolonged section of full-frontal male nudity, though the themes in this film are more mature than plenty of 18 certificates I can think of. For instance, besides Ronnie's delusional nature, and often terrifying behaviour, there's some flat-out racism, date rape, and armed adults jumping and beating up teenagers.

This is a very funny film, though most of the time it's a slim choice between laughing and crying. Equally though, it is a great study of Ronnie's character, even if many of the things you see you may not want to remember!

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny! 24 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
Really surprised by the bad reviews this has got here and can't believe how offended by it some people are..Borat and American pie are far more offensive i think.
This had me laughing out loud many times and even had a sadness about it even tho Seth's character is an idiot..that's his charm..he is offensive but doesn't realise it.
The end slow motion chase through the mall is a classic scene..hilarious stuff..also loved the date evening with Anna Faris and also Seth's mum is very funny too..makes me chuckle just thinking about it.
An underrated gem!

It was a very ordinary movie. What was he thinking lining up with those co-stars.

Not a good one for him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making the most of your talents at the Mall 1 July 2013
By j.r
Format:DVD
Observe and Report is an excellent watch. It's a very funny comedy with an excellent cast, but also a proper good story and well made overall. Michael Pena has the most memorable character. Seth Rogen is at his best in this also. Anna Farris and Ray Liotta also have good parts to play. The script is superb and some of the scenes really stand out. The music score is also well thought out. I think this film will become more regarded as the years go by. I think that The Cable Guy is Jim Carrey's best film despite not being as famous as most of his films. Like that crazy film I think this crazy film will become more well known and enjoyed.

This doesn't really work on any level.
