    Observe and Report
    The Foot Fist Way director Jody Hill takes the helm for this Seth Rogen comedy concerning an ambitious mall cop who competes with a seasoned detective to bust an elusive flasher. Make a wrong move at Forest Ridge Mall, and you'll have to answer to no-nonsense security head Ronnie Barnhardt (Rogen). Ronnie sees skateboarders as the blight of society, and any shoplifter unfortunate enough to summon his wrath will be promptly busted and booked. Sure, Ronnie may suffer delusions of grandeur when it comes to his job, but perhaps with a little effort he'll eventually get to trade in his flashlight and patch for a gun and a badge. When a flasher begins tormenting the shoppers at Forest Ridge Mall, Ronnie seizes the opportunity to showcase his detective skills and impress gorgeous makeup counter girl Brandi (Anna Faris), who can't be bothered to give him a second glance. Perhaps by catching the culprit, Ronnie will finally earn himself a prized position over at the police academy. But the one thing Ronnie hadn't counted on was competition, and when Detective Harrison (Ray Liotta) of the Conway Police makes it his personal mission to nab the flasher, the two rivals begin working around the clock to crack the case before their counterpart. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      This movie is about the head of mall security named Ronnie Barnhardt(Seth Rogen) and his fellow security colleagues trying to stop a mall parking lot flasher to fulfill his dream of one day beging a police officer.Ronnie is also in love with a woman that works in cosmetics named Brandi(Anna Faris).Lead detective Harrison(Ray Liotta)is also working the case something Ronnie doesn't approve of.Although the movie is funny the story doesn't make sense.This is a black comedy and if you like movies that are cynical and edgy and has a wicked sense of humor,this is for you.If not look elsewhere.

      Funny but Dark

      This movie isn't for everyone, it's not a typical Seth Rogen comedy. While there are several laugh out loud moments, there's also some real darkness here; the tone reminds me a bit of Eastbound and Down (this movie's director, Jody Hill, is one of the co-creators of Eastbound).

      The film was Good but the DVD sucks with no Extras


      I was very shocked to see that they didn't have a commentary on the dvd. It would have been nice to hear what the cast and crew though about making the film while they watched it. Other then that and no DvD Extra the film itself is worth seeing because of the dark comdey around it

      I think this is a great Seth Rogen movie ... His movies are normally always very funny, and are always recommendable when you just want to put on something to relax ... This movie is no exception .. Its a great movie, with lots of funny moments and a decent story too.

      Pretty good movie for the price. $9.99


      This movie is pretty funny but not as funny as the other movies Seth Rogen has stared in. It was worth the $9.99 for bluray but had I bought it at regular price $21.99 I would not have rated it so high.
