Ocean's Twelve

They all end in jail then Linus's (matt damon's) mom comes and bails them out. Catherine Zeta Jones gets together with Brad Pitt and finds out that her dead dad is actually still alive and the grand master thief. Even though they seem to loose the bet against the Night Fox, it turns out that ocean's eleven (julia roberts wasnt in the original scam) had the egg before it even got into the museum, so they got the money and the girl, again!!!

Factual error: The scene where Nightfox steals the Faberge Egg is all wrong. A laser security system must have a photoelectric receptor at the other side to detect if somebody pass between the two devices. As shown in the film, the laser beams points everywhere, so the system can't work and somebody could cross a beam without starting the alarm. Even if it was some weird system based on measuring distance it wouldn't work - if the laser hits the floor at an angle it won't bounce back to the source, it will reflect towards the ceiling.

Suggested correction: This is incorrect because there are multiple types of photoelectric sensing configurations. You can read more about the different types at https://www.ia.omron.com/support/guide/43/introduction.html. Photoelectric sensors can be used in a diffuse-reflective setting, where some of the light returns to the source-but it generally only works well in close proximity settings. Even if there weren't a receptor, there could just be a reflector to focus returning light. Take it from an electrical engineer who works with these systems.
