IT'S A TWO FOR TUESDAY COMEDY MARATHON AS ABC FAMILY PRESENTS "PAUL BLART: MALL COP" AND THE ABC FAMILY PREMIERE OF "SHALLOW HAL," AIRING TUESDAY, MAY 7
Burbank, CA (April 15, 2013) - ABC Family kicks up the comedy with back-to-back laughs, starting with "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," followed by the ABC Family premiere of "Shallow Hal," airing Tuesday, May 7th, starting at 6:00PM ET/PT.
"Paul Blart: Mall Cop" (Kevin James) is the most dedicated - if not talented - mall cop at West Orange Pavilion Mall in New Jersey. When the mall is taken over by a gang of crooks, Paul gets his chance to prove himself. But does he have what it takes to fend off the bad guys and save the girl?
In "Shallow Hal," a superficial playboy named Hal (Jack Black) is hypnotized into only seeing women's inner beauty, instead of their actual physical appearance. Not knowing he's under mind control, he falls for a plus sized woman (Gwyneth Paltrow), who happens to be his boss' daughter.
