Budget and takings[edit]

Could someone please write about the budget of this film and how much money was taken in at the box office? Home Alone has this information and its sequel should too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Crazy Eddy (talkcontribs)

Songs included in the movie[edit]

Could someone please provide some song information. The piano melody was nice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.240.234.212 (talkcontribs)

Synopsis[edit]

Quotes[edit]

I do think that the quotes section should be copied to Wikiquote, but that's just my one vote. Vote here! - dogman15 04:02, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Took care of this a few weeks ago. --Goldrushcavi 22:41, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Fatality[edit]

based on the injuries sustained, wouldn't they have died. I can't find anything on this subject. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.176.172.119 (talkcontribs)

  • Probably so. But that's why it's a movie and not real life... --Goldrushcavi 22:41, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

Agreed! Haven't you ever seen movies?Dshibshm (talk) 00:24, 28 January 2008 (UTC)

Booby traps[edit]

Someone write down the booby traps the robbers suffered --Micoolio101 (talk)

  • There has been a list of injuries the two burglars suffered up for some time; unfortunately it has been repeatedly vandalized, deleted and re-added in a reversion war (watch out for WP:3RR, by the way), and most recently replaced by a few paragraphs, which were very sloppy as well as too detailed for a plot summary. I've just replaced the original list - if the majority wants it down bad enough, it can be removed later... vote here with your thoughts and opinions. --Goldrushcavi 22:41, 16 July 2007 (UTC)


-pearls on the sidewalk during chase (very wiley-e-coyote) - both fall

-pinching the butt of a woman in front of them - both slapped

-plank seasaw outside broken window - harry vaulted onto car roof

-bricks from the roof - harry gets hit approx. 5 times in head

-doorknob connected to nailgun/staple gun (inconsistent) - harry gets nail/staple in butt, croch and face

-greased ladder rungs - marv slips and falls approx. one floor

-missing first floor - harry falls two floors

-scrap metal over door - marv gets pummeled with scrap metal

-greased floor - harry falls, paint cans fall on him

-electrified faucet handles - harry gets electrocuted by arc-welder

-hanging bulb attached to flame thrower - marv gets top of his head burned

--kerosene in toilet - marv gets the rest of him burned

-rope attached to bag of cement - harry gets hit with falling bag of cement, approx. 3 stories

-ladder sabotaged with saw - marv falls 1/2 floor

-paint cains on ropes above stairs - miss, miss, success with enormous metal pipe, fall two story, metal pipe fallso on them

-toolchest at top of stairs attached to doorknob - both (noses) smashed between door and wall

-escape rope from roof doused in kerosene "now why would anyone soak a rope in kerosene?" - both fall 4 stories, followed by paint cans

-icy sidewalk - kevin slips and falls

-pigeon lady in park; covered with birdseed (already covered in grease) - both ravaged by pigeons

-fireworks call cops to scene in park - both ... arrested.

-"bad guys saying they'll kill me" tape; waiving right to remain silent

  • The list of traps has Harry and Marv mixed up. Marv was the one who got hit by the bricks and electrocuted; Harry was the one who stuck his head in the toilet bowl with kerosene, vaulted up into the air, and slipped off the rungs on the outdoor ladder.

Plot summary[edit]

At an absolutely massive 2600 words, the plot summary had been marked as overlong. I've replaced it with a rewrite based substantially on an earlier revision [1]. --Tony Sidaway 21:59, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Faulty Article[edit]

For having such high standards, the grammar here is horrible! Many wrong punctuations and spelling.Dshibshm (talk) 06:22, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

credits should be changed to match the movie[edit]

the credits at the end of the movie have the names of the roles first followed by the actor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.208.59.120 (talk) 23:06, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Plot summary issues[edit]

Someone has bloated up the plot to 1,080 words. This exceeds the guidelines at WP:FILMPLOT, where it states that plot summaries should be 400-700 words. Per the WP:BRD cycle, I have decided to take the discussion here to see if anyone can voice their opinions on the matter. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sjones23 (talkcontribs) 17:10, 4 March 2012‎
