A hilarious wallow in utter stupidity but youll never lose sight of writer-director Jody Hills deadly satire of donut-gut mall mentality. Security guard Ronnie (Seth Rogen in disturbed mode) aspires to become a real cop (he wants to carry a handgun), but first he must outsmart the local police detective (Ray Liotta, looking bored) by capturing the notorious mall flasher and coming to the rescue of an airhead cosmetics salesgirl (brilliant Ana Faris from The House Bunny). Filmmaker Hill (The Foot Fist Way) makes clever fun of just about everything in mercantile America, with inspired meathead support by Michael Peña, Dan Bakkedahl, and Celia Weston as Ronnies drunken mother (85 min.).
