Edward Scissorhands mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Kim is watching Edward cut the roses, in closeups she's quite close to the curtain, and it's hanging straight down. In the wide shot she's slightly further away, and the curtain is angled outwards because she's holding it back with her hand.

Visible crew/equipment: When the crazy woman who said that Edward comes from hell leaves the backyard, you can see the reflection of a crewmember on the left side of the window.

Trivia: When Peg Boggs enters the mansion for the first time, there is spikey shadow on the wall at the top of the stairs. Listen carefully and you can hear scissors snipping and the shadow will move - it is Edward looking down to see the stranger in his house.

Question: I have seen the movie several times, but I cannot figure this out. Why does Jim want to steal items from his own house in order to get money for a car? If the plan had been successful, his father would probably find it strange that he had money for a car after their house was robbed. Especially because Jim's father is aware that Jim wants a car, since Jim complained about his father being too "cheap" to buy him one. Would it not make more sense to rob another person's house?

Answer: If the robbery had been successful, Jim would have been able to accuse Edward of robbing the house with his friends backing him up. Jim probably would have kept the car at a friend's house to avoid suspicion. Since the house belongs to Jim's father, nobody would question him going inside. If Jim and his friends tried to rob someone else's house, there would be the chance that somebody would be home or that a burglar alarm could go off and alert the neighbors and the police.
