    I guess this means this won't be a continuation from the last movie, where Blart was seen marrying Amy in the closing credits?

    Really can't see anything good coming from this. The original was great, everything in place as the credits rolled with Blart marrying Amy, so why mess with that. Oh yeah, another staring vehicle for Kevin so Adam's company can make more money. These guys haven't been over in years, call it a day.

    I don't care what anybody says, Paul Blart was funny. It's not cool with the net to admit stuff like that but I'd love to see a sequel. Hope they pick up with the original's ending and bring back his original love interest.
