Vandalism[edit]

This page has been vandalized quite a bit; I'm the second person to revert vandalization in the past week. Semi-protect or Pending changes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Lalaithion (talkcontribs) 00:10, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

Fake reception data[edit]

Someone must have vandalized the data in the Reception section of this article. Data was fake and was reporting exceptional reviews for the movie, while in reality it was received with generally bad reviews. I could check this with the referenced websited RottenTomatoes and MEtaCritic, yet I could not check the box office data: maybe it is fake too. I changed the "reception" chapter with real data. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Castef (talkcontribs) 15:00, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Box office math seems wrong[edit]

Current article stats "grossing a total of $31,832,636, for a 3-day average of $10,125," and "It grossed $39,234,238 over the entire 4-day MLK weekend, for a 4-day average of $12,479" obviously the math is missing a few digits here. Someone with the facts please correct/update. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexkraegen (talkcontribs) 00:56, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Plot too long[edit]

The plot seems way too long and detailed, surely it is only a summary. Kbola (talk) 18:40, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Can somebody who's seen the film PLEASE cut this down into a summary instead of a point-by-point retelling? 199.73.152.100 (talk) 14:39, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Honestly it's ridiculous. Couldn't it just be replaced by the summary off IMDB or somewhere till a proper one can be typed up. Thrinsel (talk) 21:38, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Also there are many grammatical errors and confusing language in this plot description. My examples are as follows:

"Veck watches horrified as Blart pulls over an elderly man on a scooter and attempts to give him a ticket; then inadvertantly makes a row between two women worse by telling a fat woman that he understands it's hard to be fat and she attacks him." - This should be two sentences. Also, a "row" between two women. What does that even mean? Argument would be a much better way to say it.

"After Blart works his way through all of Veck's underlings, such as by crushing Vixen by falling on top of her when he is crawling in a vent and by senting Blitzen flying into a ball pit." - Could be a misspelling, but "senting" is not proper in that sentence.

These are only two errors in this plot that is filled with run on sentences and improper and confusing grammar.

Esoteric gun models[edit]

Why are the guns all mentioned so specifically? Is this a joke—an allusion to mall guards' envy of and fascination with police gear and guns? (I haven't seen the movie so I might be missing something.) Jeff Muscato (talk) 04:02, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

The movie wasn't that deep. Likely some gun nut wrote the summary or parts. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.161.177.89 (talk) 15:58, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Cast info wrong[edit]

Stephen Rannazzisi is not a morbidly obese friend. He is the pen salesman that is rude and obnoxious to Blart and also likes Amy.

Veck[edit]

Is that a real name? Does it have some special significance? No one in the story reacts to its overall weirdness. Varlaam (talk) 20:25, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

This movie is rather obviously a promo for Segway. Shouldn't this be mentioned? -- 91.11.246.103 (talk) 07:29, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Recent edits to lead[edit]

Changes made by 67.71.124.27 (talk) are not helping the integrity of the article, in my opinion. Kevin James co-wrote the screenplay, Jayma Mays co-stars, and mentioning it was released by Columbia Pictures seems appropriate. These distinctions have been removed unjustifiably and should be discussed here. --GoneIn60 (talk) 21:36, 5 April 2013 (UTC)
