A couple of years ago, an interesting case of a mishandled script led to the release of two strikingly similar films. Though both were produced by two different studios, Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009) and Observe and Report (2009) both featured the misadventures of an awkward yet eager security officer. With both films being marketed as a comedy, there was little to distinguish between one from the other in audiences eyes.
Check out the scripts and decide for yourself which had the stronger screenplay:
1. Paul Blart: Mall Cop Script (2009)
2. Observe and Report Script (2009)
