Continuity mistake: When the bad guys are clearing the mall, the camera follows "Rudolph" as he clears an exit on his skateboard.

Other mistake: The glass in elevators is tempered. It would not have shattered when the robbers pursuing Paul crashed into it.

Factual error: The movie's set in New Jersey, but EASCare, the ambulance service used in the last scene, is a company out of Boston (where the movie was filmed). Also, the license plate on the ambulance has an registration sticker, which New Jersey hasn't used in many years.

Other mistake: When Blart and the SWAT guy are pursuing the bad guy, they have a blue police light on top of the car (the magnetic kind). Interior views of the car show blue flashes on their faces, which is impossible with the light being on the roof. The exterior shots confirm that the inside of the car is completely dark. (01:21:30)


Other mistake: In the beginning of the movie, Paul is at the NJ State Police training grounds. The training grounds, while near the ocean, do not have any islands just off the coast, nor is the ocean water nearby. The police cars used are painted light/metallic gray Massachusetts State Police colors with a blue stripe down the side. NJ State Police cars are white with red or red/blue lightbars with a blue & gold triangle logo on the front doors.

Continuity mistake: When Paul hides halfway in the air duct, his feet are hanging down when seen in the exterior shots. When seen from inside the duct, his feet are tucked up behind him.

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, Paul is putting peanut butter on his pie. The amount significantly changes from the point when he puts it on until the final scene. At first, there is a lot of peanut butter, then there is only a little.

Continuity mistake: When Paul hits the glass door of the shop, he gets thrown back and his walkie-talkie from his shoulder falls off. When he stands up again, it's back on. (01:03:10 - 01:04:25)


Visible crew/equipment: When Paul is hiding from the bad guys in the crawl space, you can see a crewmember's shadow in the crawl space.


Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene, as Blart passes out, another trainee gets off the rope and starts running. The camera cuts to Blart's face for a second, then back to the trainee starting to run. The trainee should have already been running.
