Goofs

When Nick demonstrates how to get past the alarm he does a forward roll over the sofa, which Ben is sitting on, drinking. He knocks the can out of Ben's hand and it clearly falls to his side. Nick reappears holding what should be the can of Ben's drink. It is obviously a totally different can. See more »

Quotes

Susan: You turned off the alarm and jeopardized your family?

Susan: Go and turn it back on.
Ben: No. If that alarm goes off again, I'll be arrested.
Susan: Oh Ben, I can't sleep knowing the alarm's off... neither can you.
Ben: I'll manage.
