    It reminds me of the “air shield” combination from Space Balls. 1…2…3…4…5

    Darkhelmet: So the combination is… one, two, three, four, five? That’s the stupidest combination I’ve ever heard in my life! That’s the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!

    Skroob: 12345? That’s amazing! I’ve got the same combination on my luggage!

    Which leads to my pet peeve for movies when the password for a secure site is always an easily discoverable word (with no special characters). Unfortunately, even the BBC Sherlock Holmes did this. But working for the government, you have to come up with long passwords using special characters, punctuation, capitals and numbers. (I don’t think this is a state secret.)

    In this case, he found it easier to just name the pet after his password.

    XKCD has a couple good takes on password strength and password security.(If you’re not familiar with XKCD, hover your cursor over the strip for a second punchline.)
