In the scene where Mike is buying the torch at the hardware store, you can see a man in the background holding a stainless steel sink. This a reference to Director Bill Forsyth's first movie, That Sinking Feeling (1979), about a bunch of kids who decide to break into a stainless steel sink factory. See more »
"Breaking In" is a very forgettable Burt Reynolds comedy. For a really great Reynolds chuckles film rent "The End". This one falls flat, with just one caper after another, it is very redundant. Not much can be said about the two main characters either. Both fail to elicit sympathy, and in fact Casey Siemaszko as the thief apprentice comes across as more stupid than sympathetic. The ending feels so tacked on, it is bewildering. It is also very unsatisfying, which is not a good way to end what has already been a tedious film experience. Not recommended, even for Burt Reynolds fans.................................. - MERK
