Product description

Product Description

Bi-polar mall security guard Ronnie Barnhardt (Seth Rogan, Pineapple Express) is called into action to stop a flasher from turning shopper's paradise into his personal peep show. But when Barnhardt can't bring the culprit to justice, a surly police detective, is recruited to close the case.

Synopsis

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.

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.

I'm writing this review after a second viewing of Observe and Report. I've always been a fan of Seth Rogan's light-hearted (if adult) humour, so when I first saw this, I was a little let down. The cuddly fat man we can't help but root for has been replaced here by a bi-polar mall security guard who's temper frequently gets him into trouble.

It wasn't until the second viewing (when I wasn't expecting some sort of sweet-natured feel-good comedy, like the 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up) that I really appreciated it. I also like my humour dark. And, if you're in the mood for something pretty grisly and taboo-breaking, you may just get something out of this. Basically, if you haven't laughed in the first ten minutes, turn it off and watch something more mainstream.

As I mentioned earlier, Rogen plays Ronnie Barnhardt, a mall security guard with delusions of grandeur. He thinks he's the hero, but the audience knows otherwise - which is where most of the humour derives from. He also has bi-polar disorder - a mental condition that means he's quite tolerable one minute (and we, the audience, can also unwittingly think the `old loveable' Rogen is back. Then, cut to the next scene and he's battering some kid with a skateboard.

Observe and Report is laden with poignancy and subtle humour. Basically, only watch if you're in the mood for black comedy and laced with taboos. Nothing is sacred here - expect racism, full frontal male untidy, date rape and plenty of violence and mental illness.

If you think you can find the funny side to all that, Observe and Report may just be for you.

Besides, it has a wicked soundtrack (if you're into classic rock).

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!
