We gave it an A-

Anyone expecting a giddy Seth Rogen comedy à la Knocked Up might want to think twice. The actor’s sad, delusional mall cop in Observe and Report is more Travis Bickle than Paul Blart — a bipolar sociopath who Tasers first and asks questions later. Problem is, it’s not funny, just kind of dark and depressing. Fortunately, Anna Faris pops up now and ? then as a delirious ditz. No EXTRAS. C+
