The Rocky Horror Picture Show picture

Plot hole: When the castle is about to blast off, Brad and Janet abandon Dr. Scott's wheelchair at the door of the castle and carry/drag him across the porch and down the steps. After the blast off, Brad, Janet, and Dr. Scott are on the grass and have been blown some distance apart from each other (in the UK version, there's another song where Brad and Janet crawl toward Dr. Scott so they are blown farther apart than shown in the US version). It seems extremely unlikely that the remains of Dr. Scott's wheelchair just happened to fly from the doorway to land directly under him during the blast. Brad and Janet can barely crawl so they didn't move him or it. (01:34:10)

The Lion King picture

New this month Suggested correction: Actually, Zazu wouldn't honestly say that Scar was lying; he left Scar at the gorge, but for all he knows, when Scar talks about not getting to the gorge in time, Scar could just mean that he couldn't find a safe path into the gorge to help Mufasa and Simba escape.

The Wizard of Oz picture

The Chipmunk Adventure picture

Plot hole: Although it is explained how the chipmunks were able to get away with the balloon race by tricking Ms. Miller, wouldn't Ms. Miller know that the chipettes were in on the balloon race? Especially considering the fact that she is their guardian? Also, why would she offer to babysit the chipmunks if she has chipettes to look after herself? Despite this, the chipettes were never brought along to Dave's house with Ms. Miller. And what is Ms. Miller still doing in Dave's house if she thinks the chipmunks are with Dave? Unless maybe she's taking care of the house...

Grease 2 picture

Plot hole: Nogerelli says to himself that the gap past Deadman's Curve must be 100 feet wide. How on earth was Michael meant to have made a jump of 100 feet (or even a few feet less) after both being slowed down by crashing through the wooden barriers and also by not having a ramp and therefore no upwards boost? He would have plummeted to the bottom.

Death to Smoochy picture

Plot hole: It's a good thing Sheldon didn't listen to Nora and change the cookie song, because if he had all the kids would still be singing Sheldon's cookie song (since they don't know about the change) thereby ruining the show without Rainbow Randolph's interference.

The Jungle Book 2 picture

Plot hole: In the first Jungle Book movie, the role of the vultures is that they do not seem to be hesitant when helping the boy, Mowgli in need of help from Shere Khan. However, in this movie, when their obnoxious vulture friend is attacked by Shere Khan, they do absolutely nothing to help him and in fact, fly away cowardly. Did they suddenly lose all of their courage?

The Court Jester picture

Plot hole: After the secret passage has collapsed, the Black Fox hires Hawkin's midget acrobat friends because the only opening left "is barely (wide) enough for a child". Yet, during the throne room brawl, Hawkins passes the swing-around rope to a guy who is much taller than the midgets.

A Night at the Opera picture

Plot hole: When the three Marx Brothers are causing mayhem at the performance of "Il Trovatore," although we see scenes from several different acts of the opera, there seems to have been no intermission (or all the trouble would have gotten sorted out then, instead of at the end). You have to be at least a little familiar with "Il Trovatore" to notice this.

From Justin To Kelly picture

Plot hole: When Kelly writes her number on the paper towel and it ends up in the puddle, it becomes unreadable. It was written with lipstick, which is always oil based and wouldn't bleed at all in water.

Aladdin picture Video

Plot hole: The cave of wonders originally states that "only ONE may enter here" emphasizing the number one. Yet Aladdin is able to enter with Abu. And it's not that it doesn't count because he's he's an animal as it is Abu that sets off the booby traps inside. And if animals didn't matter, then Jafar could have just sent Iago inside to grab the lamp.

Suggested correction: It would seem the cave considers Abu a pet, so he doesn't count as a person. And as is usually the case, you are responsible for the actions of your pet, up to and including stealing magical jewels from a cave of wonders.
