Michael Caine’s immortal line in “The Italian Job” was, of course:

“You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!”

According to the BBC, it appears that bank robbers still need to remember the lesson:

“Suspected robbers in Germany appear to have miscalculated the quantity of explosives needed to blow their way into a rural bank.

The building housing the bank in the northern village of Malliss was largely destroyed by an overnight explosion.

The bank’s cash machine survived intact and the suspected thieves are not thought to have made away with any money.”
