Paul Blart is a mild-mannered man who works as a security guard in a New Jersey mall. For years, he has applied to become a cop, but he always fails the physical exam because he has hypogmycemia and tends to pass out when his blood sugar is low. One day, a gang of organized criminals put the mall under siege and take hostages. Blart becomes trapped inside, and because of his sense of duty, refuses to leave. He thus becomes the police department's eyes on the inside and attempts to stop the criminals on his own.Written by
During filming, the film crew would allow Kevin James' wife Steffiana De La Cruz and two kids to go shopping around the Burlington Mall (film location in Massachusetts), while he would continue to finish filming his scenes. See more »
All of the police vehicles in the movie are shown with all blue emergency lights. In New Jersey the display of blue lights exclusively is reserved for volunteer firefighters and volunteer EMS personal vehicles. A New Jersey driver would recognize the minivan with the blue throw light Paul and Jimmy were driving as a volunteer responding to a call, not a police vehicle. See more »

kinda silly, kinda dumb, kinda fun
This film is kinda silly, kinda dumb, and kinda fun. It is the type of film I would take my 12 year old daughter to see. It seems to be made for preteens and teens. The film was slow to start so have some patience at the beginning. It was a cute movie. Very fun, kid friendly and gives you warm fuzzy feelings at the end. The hero is very likable and you always cheering him to come out on top. I wouldn't say it's a hilarious movie or keep you on the edge of your seat, it had its moments. I would consider the movie a good waste of time. It's nice to have a film out there that is light and avoid bathroom jokes and video-game type violence. I enjoyed it and my daughter liked it even more. It is recommended for young people but not fully recommended for adults.
