Plot hole: The only reason the movie takes place is because the news station that Mrs. Mott watches names Claire as the woman who filled the lawsuit against Mr. Mott. It is completely illegal for broadcasters to name or show a picture of a sexually assaulted victim.

More quotes from The Hand that Rocks the Cradle

Question: How did Peyton get back in the house at the end without keys?

Answer: The same way any common criminal gets in to a house, she "broke" in by either kicking the door, or smashing a window, etc. A locked door is not that hard an obstacle to overcome.
