This humorous look at the toils of a shopping mall security guard features scenes of conflict shown in a comedic fashion. These portrayals become more serious after a group of thieves take control of the mall and capture hostages. Some characters use guns and shots are fired. Hand-to-hand conflicts are depicted with characters using basic weapons and their bodies to subdue each other. A man wrestles with a woman, and her shirt begins to come off exposing her bra (no sexuality is implied). A man who usually does not drink due to health issues, becomes highly intoxicated and falls through a large window. Another character is pushed through the glass on an elevator. A dog is presumably injured or killed by a character riding a Segway. A dummy, meant to look human, is shot multiple times. A couple of veiled sexual references are heard. Infrequent mild profanities and terms of deity are included. References are made to being “fat” and body image topics are discussed.
