Continuity mistake: When Max turns off the lights, the switches are already down - he doesn't move them in any way (neither up nor down) and therefore hasn't made any actions that would alter the current lighting situation, however the lights turn themselves off anyway even though it is apparent the switches were not moved. Nobody else moved any lightswitches either. (00:25:50)
