Corrected entry: At the close of the film, the David and his friends cannot break through the windows of the house because they are a special reinforced type. However upstairs, when one of the bad guys is trying to get into a bedroom window, Nicole takes an umbrella and easilly shoves it through a regular window, breaking it, and injuring the bad guy. Clearly Steve would have had reinforced windows throughout the entire house, wouldn't he?

Correction: Maybe he ran out of money, or time, or the installer ripped him off, or the job was still underway, or he thought the upper windows didn't need doing.

Corrected entry: When David hits Nicole by accident he hits her across the right eye. Then the next day the bruise is on her left.

Correction: That is because she is looking in a mirror when they show the bruise the next day.

Corrected entry: In the car chase between David and Margo, there is an oncoming car which forces David's car off the road. If Margo is terrified of David, why too does she pull over and stop? The oncoming car was not in her lane and she did not have to avoid it in any way.

Correction: She moved because David was going to hit the oncoming car and she didnt want the person in the car to get hurt because of her.

Corrected entry: When the girl and her brother are playing the games console and her friend walks in. She leaves her brother but it was a two player game and both sides are still fighting, instead of one.

Correction: The reason the game continues fighting after Nicole gets up is because her little brother switches her controller off. This then makes it a one player game.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Nicole is in the car with her dad she makes a reference to the song that is being played as being James Taylor, when it is really is an Allman Brothers song.

Correction: She is talking about not wanting to go see James Taylor again, like they were scheduled to do so that night. Even though Allman Bros. is on the radio, she is referring to the concert they are scheduled to see, not the song on the radio.

Plot hole: At the end of the movie where David and his friends are attempting to break into Steve's house, David has the door code and attempts to gain access once by using it. Steve then tells his wife and the kids to go hide upstairs and turn off all the lights so nobody will know where they are. Then Steve and his wife go to another part of the house, away from the front door. Then, we hear David and his friends using axes and a big log to try and break down the door, "before* Steve secures the door with household appliances later on. Why wouldn't David have just kept trying the code?

Suggested correction: The reason David can not keep trying the code, is because the door has a lock on the top, and one at the bottom (middle regular lock). That middle lock is able to respond to the key/pass-code system, but the top one is not. In order to get in the house, David would have to be able to enter the pin (which, yes he knows) but with the top lock still locked from the inside he can not get in. I am assuming there is a key slot on the outside where he would need a key, and also I'm sure the family doesn't bother locking the top half of the door as no one else knows the pin (so they thought). And I'm guessing that they never locked it during the day either, and only at night.
