* EekAMouse: Alice is terrified of Doris the rat.



* InformedAbility: Remember, the StupidCrooks of this movie are supposed to be ''veteran master spies and assassins'' taking on a kid, and the CurbStompBattle being in favor of ''the kid''.

to:

* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: Mrs. Hess.
Hess fills the role this time, though unlike her two predecessors, who just have undeserved reputations, she's rude and surly until the chips are down and she realizes there's real danger. From her point of view, Alex is this; she sees him as a brat and his entire involvement in the plot starts when she gives him the car just because she doesn't want it and doesn't want to pay him for shovelling the walk, but as she tells him later, "you're a very sweet young man, I just never took the time to know you."
* NoTimeToExplainNoTimeToExplain: Alex ends up doing this a lot near the end, since he's spent days by this point giving full explanations to the authorities and isn't believed.



* RuleOfPerception: Beaupre can't tell he's holding a toy gun spraypainted black, despite it being about three pounds lighter than the Glock he'd been carrying and having a suction cup sticking out of the barrel.

** A few more keep Kevin home alone for three days. There's not a single responsible adult on hand who might be able to help him. All the [=McAllister=]s' extended family are in Paris. Everyone in the neighborhood is either on holiday or doesn't check their answer machine messages. The police officer who visits the [=McAllister=] house to follow up a reported case of a minor left home alone decides there's no one home after knocking a couple of times. The only adult around who Kevin might be able to turn to for help is a creepy loner who everything thinks is a serial killer.

The messages (or even look out of the window to notice that Kevin is still around while the rest of his family aren't). In fact the only local resident even sighted is a creepy loner who Kevin thinks is a serial killer. Meanwhile the local police can't help either as they're so incompetent/nonchalant that the officer who visits the [=McAllister=] house to follow up a reported case of a minor left home alone decides just knocks a couple of times before deciding there's no one home after knocking a couple of times.

* CallingCard: The Wet Bandits (or rather, Marv, as Harry expresses irritation that Marv would actually resort to such a thing like that) often flood the houses they robbed. This bites them in the butt later in the film when they are arrested for attempted robbery.
