The Thomas Crown Affair

The missing painting was actually the one Thomas Crown donated as a temporary replacement, just covered with a water-based paint. The sprinklers go off at the end, revealing the real painting underneath the paint. Thomas Crown gets away with it and he runs away with Catherine Banning.

Other mistake: When Catherine breaks into Crown's house, her assistants immediately get to work on the security panel. When the first assistant touches the panel, it falls off the wall and he has to quickly push it back into place.
