New this month Factual error: When Mya points out his Loch Ness tattoo, and asks when he got it, and he says the night before, it would not be healed as it is. It would still be red, raised, and be covered to protect it. Also, later in the movie when he is on the ground and we see the large tattoo across the whole back, this would also be impossible as a whole back tattoo would take at least two or three long sessions, and this movie takes place over just a couple of days.

Epic

Other mistake: When Paul Blart is pwning Rock Band, the vocals shows the tambourine/clap notes. Paul Blart is doing nothing that would play those notes (singing or pressing the "a" button).

Continuity mistake: After Blart gets spray tanned, his shirt is a mess with the tanning spray. A few shots later, his shirt is clean again. Then a few shots later, his shirt is once again dirty.

Continuity mistake: When the bad guys are clearing the mall, the camera follows "Rudolph" as he clears an exit on his skateboard. As he starts to clear the exit a young man with a black jumper with a white top half can be seen on his feet moving away. In the next shot he is sitting down with a bag on a bench and then gets up to leave.

INMK

Continuity mistake: When we see the dog chasing Paul, it is sunny. In the close ups of the dog, there are no shadows from the dog as there were in the previous shots.

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.

Brenda Elzin

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.

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.

Add time

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.

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.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Paul leaves the pen full of balls, you can see people in the far left walking. This would not have happened if the building was "secure" as the robbers stated.

Add time

Visible crew/equipment: When Paul and the bad guy fall through the skylight into the play area with a lot of colored balls, the crash mat becomes visible as they land on it. The mat also throws the balls into the air.

Other mistake: It is November, since Blart is worried about Black Friday. The kid's clothing store they are seen walking by toward the beginning of the film has Summer clothing and bathing suits in the window. I used to to work in retail and while stores were far ahead of the weather, they are never that far ahead.

Visible crew/equipment: Just before they arrive at the airport, the van goes past and you can see a stage light reflected in the van's paint.

Factual error: Paul has hypoglycemia. When he eats the lollipop off the floor and gets up instantly, this would never happen as it takes the sugar a while to get into the bloodstream. He would never be instantly cured.
