A God-awful attempt to blend the comedy of Paul Blart: Mall Cop with the noirish nightmarishness of Taxi Driver.

This relentlessly sick comedy stars Seth Rogen (pictured) as an understandably self-loathing security guard. Rogenís character is presumably meant to be amusing, but he is so nasty, violent and misogynistic that any laughter soon dies out. As in Pineapple Express before it, the mixture of comedy and extreme, sadistic violence just doesnít work.
