The Living Daylights picture

Plot hole: Necros had absolutely no way of knowing that Bond and Saunders had arranged to meet at the cafe when they did, and wouldn't have had anywhere near enough time to track them down and set up his elaborate booby trap. Saunders only suggested the meeting place and time a few hours earlier, and it was kept strictly between him and Bond. The scene in Tangier where Whittaker tells Necros to kill another British agent takes place on the same day Bond arrived in Vienna; meaning that Necros got from Tangier to Vienna (a 5 hour-plus flight), tracked down Saunders, acquired the materials to booby trap the cafe doors (or had planned this ahead of time - unlikely) and set the trap up well in advance of he and Bond getting to the fairground. There was nowhere near enough time for all of that to happen without Necros having psychic knowledge of Saunders' movements.

Plot hole: Cutting plastic explosive and disguising it as chewing gum wouldn't hide the smell from bomb sniffing dogs.

Sister Act picture

Plot hole: Delores is walking into the murder scene at the beginning of the movie just as Ernie is shot. Later, while she is being questioned, she tells the two detectives what the thugs said and did, yet, she was not eavesdropping or looking through the door.

Glitter picture

Plot hole: When Billie and Dice are in the limo, Dice mimics what Rafael said to Billie at the party. However at that point Dice was not with them to hear this - he was off in the crowds at the party.

La Bamba picture

Plot hole: When Ritchie appears at a pizza party sponsored by a local radio station, his manager Bob Keane is handing out copies of Ritchie's first album. In reality, the album had not been released until April 1959, two months after Ritchie's death. As the actual LP includes his biggest hit "Donna", Ritchie had not yet recorded (or even composed) the song in this part of the movie until a few scenes later.

The Birdcage picture

Plot hole: There's no way for Albert to show up at the front door as Val's mother the night the Keeleys are there, as the only way out of his bedroom (which he is still in by the time the Keeleys show up) is through the door that leads into the living room where the Keeleys, Val and Armand are.

Center Stage picture

Plot hole: In Jonathan's ballet at the workshop, Sergei proceeds very slowly through an array of twenty dancers before reaching the leading lady, whom he expects to be Maureen. But instead it is Eva, whom Maureen has asked to take her place. When Sergei sees Eva, he is extremely surprised. I guess that could make sense, if he's been focused on his own dancing. But the stage crew and several dancers in the wings start chattering confusedly, as if they've also just seen Eva for the first time in that same moment. However, Eva must have been standing there for several minutes, or at the very least had just walked through the crowd of surprised people, and Maureen must have been missing from her spot this whole time, so these people should be in mid-reaction. (01:26:50)

Hannah Montana: The Movie picture

Plot hole: At the concert in Crowley Corners, Miley announces that she will sing a new song she just wrote, "The Climb." Somehow the band and the backup singers all know the words and the music.

The Full Monty picture

Plot hole: When Gaz tries to steal a jacket and Dave, who works as security, catches him in quite a dramatic manner they are seen by other employees. Dave lets Gaz go because he is a friend. But the next day both stroll together through the shop as if nothing had happened, with no enquiries or follow-up from the other employees. (00:59:30)

Wayne's World picture

Plot hole: When Wayne and Garth are trying to get Mr Big to hear Cassandra's band, they refer to when they spoke to the security guard earlier in the movie. They claim he said Mr Big would be in Chicago on Friday when he actually didn't - he never mentioned a specific day at all and just said he was travelling that way next week. (00:59:50 - 01:12:40)

Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit picture

Plot hole: Even though Rita left the choir early into rehearsal for the contest, and her mother took her music away to prevent her practising before she had learned it, she still manages to know the song by heart and the dance routine perfectly when she rejoins her friends last minute. She couldn't have perfected her performance in the time she had.

Suggested correction: First off, I think it's possible for them to practice the song as they're going to the performance and second, the dance routine looked more improvised and considering that they changed the arrangement at last minute, I think it makes sense. Also, who's to say that Rita doesn't have a good memory?

On the same note, they repeated the same moves a couple times. She probably just caught on.

Hard Day's Night picture

Plot hole: When the boys go to get Ringo out of the police station, the other 3 are in front of the police officers and Ringo is way behind strolling along with his camera. When they get trapped in the courtyard they are all together. How did Ringo manage to pass all the policemen with out getting arrested, whilst going slower than everyone else?

Cool as Ice picture

Plot hole: Vanilla Ice jumps over the fence causing the horse Kat is riding to buck her off to the ground. How does he make his motorcycle jump over a fence when he is riding on a road? I don't think it's possible unless there was a ramp on the side of the road, and I didn't see one.

Freaky Friday picture

Plot hole: When Anna in her mum's body, gets to the office she has to sign for a package. At this point she finds out that her mum is "blind". She should have found out when looking through her mum's purse which was closer than the form she had to sign.

Pure Country picture

August Rush picture

Plot hole: When Mr. Jeffries finds out that Evan is named August Rush too, he goes to the Central Park concert and sees Evan onstage, however he couldn't know that Evan was having a concert, or even that Evan was at that place at that time.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: There were streetlight banners all over Central Park with August Rush's name on them (and presumably the Philharmonic had flyers and other ads with August's name on them). So it's certainly conceivable that Jeffries recognized the name from an advertisement.

Alvin and the Chipmunks picture

Plot hole: When the chipmunks finally release their first song, there is a montage showing the chipmunks rising musical success. In one shot we see a marquee promoting "The Chipmunks Premiere CD Release", and on it is a picture of the chipmunks in the clothes Dave has made them (note Alvin in his 'A' jumper.) However, Dave doesn't actually make the chipmunks these clothes until further on in the film. (00:41:50)

Phantom of the Opera picture

Plot hole: The opera house is directly above the Phantom's hideout in the sewers, with an orchestra booming loudly overhead almost every night (the Phantom plainly hears the orchestra), but this constant vibration doesn't affect the integrity of the subterranean structure. But at the end, the noise of two simple gunshots causes the Phantom's hideout and a massive part of the sewer system to collapse.

Plot hole: The house has no pool, even though Walter tells the homeowner she has the best kept pool he's ever seen.

Black Snake Moan picture

Plot hole: Ronnie is shown returning to town a few days after leaving for deployment due to being discharged from the National Guard for his anxiety disorder. In reality, being medically discharged could take months depending on how long it takes the Army to make a decision on follow-up medical care and possible post-discharge disability compensation. If the Army suspected he lied about not having anxiety in order to enlist, that could add additional time for an investigation and possible criminal charges for fraudulent enlistment.
