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.

Answer: Jim also quotes "we could a lot of money off this thing" stating he could steal the car, sell it and get enough money to buy his own car without suspicion.

The question covers this. Jim's father probably *would* be suspicious. Jim was complaining about wanting a car, so it would be strange if there was a robbery, and then he got a car. His father would probably wonder how he paid for it.
