Corrected entry: When Paul knocks the bad guy over in the sporting goods store, he falls flat on his back. The crash mat is visible right where he lands and is a different color to the surrounding tiles.

Correction: In the prior scene before the bad guy is tripped with a hockey stick, when Paul is in front of store and decides to go in, you can see that the red mat is actually a carpet runner on the floor in front of the hockey gear (New Jersey Devils) Paul winds up in. It's also the same color and theme of the sports gear displayed and hockey uniform Paul is wearing.

Corrected entry: There is no way Maya could have entered the mall after the siege began, as she did by simply walking through a back door using her dad's pass key. The place was supposedly surrounded with law enforcement and she would never have gotten by them and, additionally, she's surprised by the hostage situation, which she wouldn't be after seeing the police presence outside.

Correction: By the time Maya enters the Mall the Swat team is there and the guy thats in charge of the swat team, James Kent, is in on the whole takeover so he wouldn't have the mall completely surrounded which would allow them to escape. That is why Maya was able to enter the mall so easily, because there wasn't any police or swat team completely around the building.

Corrected entry: In the final image (before the credits) that zooms out from the plane at the airport, the plane only has one wing. The far wing should be visible at least a little due to the angle, but it just isn't there.

Correction: If you look under the plane you can see its shadow.

Corrected entry: The SUV on display in the mall would not be filled with fuel at all, let alone enough for Paul to pursue Veck to the airfield.

Correction: The dealership loaning or providing the vehicle would have 1-2 gallons of gas in the tank for driving it in and out of the mall, getting it up or off the car carrier, and into or out of the showroom. A new vehicle that size could easily drive 30-60 miles on that small amount of gas. That is well within range of the airport.


Corrected entry: When Paul Blart falls through the glass on the top of the mall while fighting with the long haired skateboarder, you can see Paul's stunt double a few shots before hitting the play pen.

Correction: There was no stunt double used for this shot. This can be confirmed in the special features on the DVD.

Corrected entry: When Paul Blart goes to turn the fog machine on, he turns the valve to the right. This would shut off the fog instead of turning it on.


Correction: Usaully a valve is closed by turning it to the right, but not all valves are set up the same way. It may not necessarily be righty-tighty, lefty-loosey with this valve.


Corrected entry: Paul Blart supposedly has never used a cell phone before. Yet when he borrows the guy's daughter's phone he texts like a pro, plus he knows how to use everything, such as the camera, perfectly.

Correction: This is not a mistake, my first time using a cell phone i figured out how to text and take pictures pretty quick. It's not that hard.

Corrected entry: This movie takes place in New Jersey. All of the cop cars in the movie had "blue" light bars. New Jersey uses "red" light bars for police/law enforcement, not blue.

Correction: Not true. Various NJ law enforcement agencies use a combination of red/blue, just red or just blue light bars. It depends on the agency. And since this movie includes local, state and S.W.A.T. officers, this is not a mistake.

Corrected entry: The Mustang in the movie that belongs to Amy is a 1966 model. She tells Paul it is a 1965 model.


Correction: Two things; people often get the year of their car wrong by calling it one year, while it's another. I've personally seen a five year mistake while working at a car parts store. Second, if the car was built in, say, November 1965, it would be a 1966 model, but she may think it's a '65 by reading the door panel information. This is actually a very common mistake made by a lot of people.
