When a shopping mall is taken over by a gang of organized crooks, it's up to a mild-mannered security guard to save the day.
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.
Some shots of the mall interior after the thieves had taken it over show the stores and kiosks shuttered. While it's possible that store employees had shuttered their stores and evacuated through rear service passageways, the shuttered kiosks suggest those retailers had taken the time to close up before evacuating.
Two additional scenes play during the closing credits.
The UK DVD restores some violence but retains some of the cinema cuts.
