Best part of story, including ending: This movie was quite dumb in it's plot. It makes you question your maturity level when watching it, however it did have some good humor and I couldn't help but laugh.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene would be when Ronnie is with the mall detective Harrison and Ronnie accuses one of the Hindu men at the mall cart of possibly being the pervert they are on the look for. The man replies to Ronnie with, " How can I be the pervert when he's white. My dick is brown you dumb motherfucker".

Opinion about the main character: What I like about the character in the movie is his perseverance and humor. He seems to be sure he can become an officer and protect the people of the mall. His childish humor kept me laughing while watching the movie.
