Beethoven - Alarm
When the bad guys break in to the petstore to steal pets they break a little window on the front door to unlock the dead bolt and enter. Then one bad guy tells the other not to step in the laser beam in front of the door as to not set off the alarm. But since the glass they broke went on the inside dont you think it might of set off the alarm by being in the laser beam or even have glass on the ground which there wasn't.

I think falling glass like that in the darkness would reflect the beam, making it miss the target.

I'm not sure. Will clear glass break a laser beam?

The glass would bend the beam, but I doubt ennough to make it miss the target...

I think it has to do with the angle and thickness of the glass. Basically light travels at different speeds in different mediums (so much for the constant speed of light). Anyway, this speeding up and slowing down will either reflect or refract the light. If the class is exactly perpendicular to the beam of light, then it would not interrupt the beam. Any other angle would probably bend the light a little causing it not to see the eye on the other side and setting off the alarm (It would only take a couple of millimeters). I must admit that I thought of this same problem when watching the movie. Good catch.
