Bargain hunters at the Forest Ridge Mall are about to get more than they bargained for when a chubby man in a ratty bathrobe starts flashing customers. Security guard Ronnie Barnhardt feels that this is the best thing to happen to him. Catching the flasher might just be his ticket to a real police job and to romance with a hot cosmetics-counter babe. Only one thing stands between Ronnie and destiny and that is the tall, handsome cop who actually knows what he's doing.

This is a very good raunchy over-the-top comedy. I am assuming you can only truly enjoy this movie if you like Seth Rogan and don't mind the graphic nature of the material. Sex, drugs, violence and language as well as political incorrectness abound. There is enough bad conduct in this movie there is almost no room for a storyline. I really liked it despite my better judgement. Funny. To me.

I don't know how I thought this might be worth renting. It's so not. I ended up apologizing to my wife, because I genuinely felt embarrassed and responsible for picking this one up and therefore wasting our time. The movie is just not funny. None of the characters (except the girl in the wheelchair) had much in terms of redeeming value. The script was just terrible. The acting was horrendous. Stay away from this one.

I have read tons of bad reviews of this movie, and that just made me want to see it more. I'm a big fan of Seth Rogen so I really enjoyed this movie, but if you can't stand foul language and potty humor then stay clear of this one. Other than that I enjoyed all the acting and felt it had a fun and unique storyline. I would highly recommend this to fans of raunchier comedies.

Disgusting, foul, sick... I could go on, but you get the idea. If F-bombs were really bombs, this would have about a 100 megaton rating. Watching this is a truly horrid experience that I wouldn't wish on an enemy.

A time waster. I expected better from Seth Rogen. Disappointing.

Skip It – Observe and Report (2009) 86 min. Despite my review, a lot of you will want to check this one out. Just a warning though – the film is terrible. There are very very few laughs and Seth Rogen plays such an un-likeable character that you’ll never feel any empathy for him. He made such a splash with Knocked Up (2007) and Pineapple Express (2008), but this one is just vile, perverse and nasty – I believe they call it “shock comedy”. Seth plays a mall cop (Kevin James tried it with slightly better results in Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)) who’s in love with the cosmetics girl (played by Anna Faris, who also demonstrates the ugly side of humanity, and wants to be more than just a mall cop. Probably the only redeeming factors are Ray Liotta’s verbal attack on Seth’s character halfway through the picture, Seth’s mall nemesis Saddamm played by Aziz Ansari, and the girl at the coffee shop (Nell) played by Collette Wolfe (I loved her expressions as she admires (not sure why) Seth).
