Trying to find this movie title please help

I think the movie was made in the 90s. Its about some people that broke into a house and they think its empty but there was a little boy staying home from school because he is sick. The scene i can remember is him hiding in the vents and he steals a steak from one of the robbers. I think he uses a fish hook to steal the steak so nobody sees him steal it. Its a good movie but i cant remember any of the actors that were in the movie.
