When Mr. Krupp gets through the concrete, the appearance is given that he'd been digging straight through, however when Mr. Finley goes through and gets stuck in the concrete, he's coming up through a hole made in the concrete lain ground level, rather than perpendicular to the ground. In addition to it being a factual goof, given the previous scene, it would also be physically impossible for him to climb through, seeing as his back would have to be bent at a 90 degree angle at one point in order to accomplish this feat.

It's unlikely that the events in 'House Arrest' would ever happen, but the film is still frothy and fun...
Two kids are shocked when their parents announce that they are separating. As a last resort, the siblings decide to lock them in the basement and not let them out until their marital problems are solved. However, the friends of the children soon find out about what they are up to, and force their parents into the basement as well. Will the group of couples be able to sort out their relationships, or is this just one really bad plan gone wrong?
Okay, first of all, it's unlikely that the events in 'House Arrest' would ever happen, but the film is still frothy and fun. Even though some of the acting is highly irritating, the children (apart from the main guy) are very funny, as is Jamie Lee Curtis. While everything about the film is far too predictable and safe (even for a family film), there's an energy about the production that is impossible to resist. A guilty pleasure.
