Triple bill of comedy films. 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' (2009) is a comedy starring Kevin James as Paul Blart, a good-natured, quiet-living man working as a security guard at a shopping mall, having previosly failed in his ambition to become a state trooper owing to his weight problem.
When a gang of criminals disguised as Santa's helpers put the mall under siege and take hostages - including Paul's young daughter Maya (Raini Rodriguez) and the long-time object of his affections, Amy (Jayma Mays), Paul takes matters into his own hands and becomes the unlikely hero of the day. 'You Don't Mess With the Zohan' (2008) is a goofball comedy that generated some controversy on its initial release, starring Adam Sandler as Zohan Dvir, an Israeli Special Forces soldier who fakes his own death so he can reinvent himself as a hairdresser in New York.
He throws himself into his new identity with admirable gusto, romancing his clients by performing 'special services' in the back room - but is eventually recognised and must face losing his newfound life and career.
Emmanuelle Chriqui and John Turturro co-star. 'I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry' (2007) is a story about New York firefighters Chuck Levine (Sandler) and Larry Valentine (James) who live very different lives.
Whilst Chuck is a self-confessed lothario out for a good time, Larry is a widower struggling to keep a regular home life for the sake of his two young children.
With Larry refusing to take up life as a single parent and deal with his loss, he forgets to change the primary beneficiary of his pension from his wife to his children before the cut-off date, which would financially protect them in the event of a work injury.
The only solution is to get married again, but Larry decides there's no other woman he could trust enough with his children's future.
During a routine search of a burning house, Larry saves Chuck's life in an accident and Chuck is forever indebted to his best mate as they awake in hospital.
Evaluating his predicament whilst in his sick bed, Larry finds an article about a same-sex domestic partnership and realises Chuck could pay his debt quicker than anticipated!
After wearing Chuck down, they eventually get hitched in a bizarre Las Vegas wedding chapel and just when they settle in to a scene of same-sex domestic bliss for the sake of the kids, they soon realise that their gay union is going to be under serious scrutiny from surprise inspector Clinton Fitzer (Steve Buscemi), who is always ready to catch out straight guys cheating the system.
