Not today, methinks.
I remember thinking the same thing when I saw it in a film class a couple of years ago.

That reminds me of another one- when I saw Dirty Harry for the first time and they had a scene where Harry and his partner went to the San Francisco Airport and walked right through to one of the terminals so they could get lunch at a burger stand. No airport security at all: boy did that seem weird.
