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.

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!

A very funny movie that put Seth Rogen on the map, a story of an enthusiastic security guard with visions of progression. Whomever stands in his way is going to get it, from him or from a member of his trustee squad, Michael Pena also stars as his camp side-kick. I loved this movie from beginning to end.

'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.

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.

some spoilers

made well enough. Reasonable acting. Liotta is a seasoned pro - but afterwards I couldn't help thinking Why? Why did you do this movie. anna Faris ? again why? perhaps she is just not a versatile actress. and perhaps never made the break she should have. Here the wardrobe people did well but the make up was godawful. Perhaps she was meant to look like mutton dressed as lamb. Burstyn was good but all of them seemd to be struggling with a script that just wasn't there.

the story didn't grab me. I couldn't work out who I was meant to sympathetic towards. The love strand of the story was obvious - not of itself a problem - but it could have been told better with better dialogue. The whole thing seemed like a vanity project - for seth rogen. The story what pitiful dregs of there were - was garbage,

there was some strong language - ironically from street kids. not much nudity, if any. Oh I forgot - how could I - yes there was some nudity - of course there was. It was a older, fat man flasher. this did not add to the telling of the story. Violence was contained to 2 or three scenes. This thankfully was done well. If not it would have only got one star. the violence/action scenes were well choreographed and actually helped the story. There was nothing gory just a few fights - but well done.

Perhaps some of the humour of 'awkward silences and in appropriate responses will appeal to some but not me. For me the humour was non existent.

All in all not much cop

ACID TEST: would I buy/watch again, or recommend? - NO
