Mall Movies!

Paul Blart: Mall Cop, the new film from Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, starring US TV funnyman Kevin James, hit UK screens on Friday.

To celebrate its release, and with Hollywood having a big history of films taking place in malls, Roll Credits looks at the top Mall Films ever made!

Paul Blart: Mall Cop

In Columbia Pictures' comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Kevin James stars as the title character, a single, suburban dad, trying to make ends meet as a security officer at a New Jersey mall. Though no one else takes his job seriously, Paul considers himself on the front lines of safety. When a heist shuts down the megaplex, Jersey's most formidable mall cop will have to become a real cop to save the day.


Brodie Bruce, a Sega and comic book obsessed college student, and his best friend, TS Quint, are both dumped by their girlfriends on the same day, and to deal with their loss, they both go to the local mall. Along the way, they meet up with some friends, including Willam, a guy who stares at Magic Eye pictures, desperately trying to see the hidden image; Gwen, one of TS's ex-girlfriends; and Jay & Silent Bob, of Clerks fame. Eventually, they decide to try and win back their significant others, and take care of their respective nemeses; TS's girlfriend's father, and a store clerk who hates the two for not having any shopping agenda.

Dawn of the Dead

In George A. Romero’s 1970s zombie classic, tensions are running high in the United States. The recently deceased are returning to life as shambling, flesh-eating ghouls, and political dissidents are threatening social stability. When the zombies rule the earth, there's only one place to hide - the local shopping mall. But can this retail sanctuary keep out the living dead...?

Mean Girls

Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) has just returned to the United States with her parents after growing up in Africa. Her first day in class as the new girl will be her first encounter with the public school system. As the new girl, where will she fit in? To keep them as friends she must do things she has never done before, such as being deceitful, scheming, and finally untrustworthy. She discovers who her real friends are in the end.

Chopping Mall

Park Plaza Mall has just installed a state-of-the-art security system, which includes three high-tech security robots. Four young couples decide to have the wildest all-night party of their lives. They all stay after hours at the mall, drinking, partying, and having sex. It just so happens though that this is the night the security system malfunctions, due to several lightning strikes to the security computer. The robots turn into killbots, rampaging through the mall and killing its employees. By way of comic relief, the robots are heard to say "Have a nice day" after each killing.

Scenes From A Mall

Woody Allen's character, Nick, is married to author Deborah, played by Midler. On their 16th anniversary, during a shopping stroll, the lawyer Nick Fifer (Allen) confesses his wife Deborah (Midler) some affairs. She goes wild and insists on a divorce. After they agreed to the dividing up of their belongings, Deborah confesses having an affair, too. Now Nick gets very upset and wants the divorce for his part, but the last word is not spoken yet.

Bad Santa

Two conmen, disguised as Santa (Billy Bob Thornton) and an Elf (Tony Cox), have been traveling across the country for the last seven years during the Christmas season getting jobs at shopping malls, and then robbing them on Christmas Eve. They use the trusting nature of people during this happy time just to rob them blind. Billy Bob meets an 8-year old boy, (Brett Kelly) who has this trusting nature, and who shows Billy Bob the meaning of Christmas.
