Batman Returns picture

Plot hole: When The Penguin is controlling the Batmobile, Batman punches through the floor to take off the transmitter. We still see a video feed of The Penguin. Why? Batman pulled off the transmitter, so there is no reason for there to still be a video feed.

Under Siege picture

Plot hole: An American battleship with an active supply of nuclear warheads on its missiles would in no way allow a helicopter full of strangers to land and deploy without those men being screened for any weapons by the security guards on the ship (even if Krill already knows).

Forever Young picture

Plot hole: When Daniel is in the air with the stolen plane from the Los Alamos air base Nat suddenly appears from behind. However, Nat had no chance to slip into the plane secretely as there was only one stepladder that had been in his mom's full view while she hugged Daniel good-bye. (01:25:30)

Death Becomes Her picture

Plot hole: Goldie Hawn's character obviously has lost a large piece of her spine when being shot, as seen through the hole in her body. So how does she keep her upper body up straight? When Meryl Streeps character broke her neck she couldn't keep her head up, so why can Hawn walk around as normal?

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)

976-Evil II picture

Plot hole: During the scene in Paula's frontroom right after Spike walks in and confronts the astral Mr. Grubeck harassing Robin, he takes a fireplace tool and swings at Grubeck and it naturally goes right through him, to which Grubeck replies, "You can't touch me, but I can touch you." However, just a minute earlier before Spikes arrival, Grubeck had Robin pinned against Paula's refridgerator and Robin physically pushed Grubeck away from her.

White Men Can't Jump picture

Plot hole: Sidney's friends at the beginning act like if he made his fifth shot, he beats Billy. If Sidney had made the fifth shot, he would have merely tied Billy and they would've either gone to a playoff or just settled for a tie. Billy made all 5 shots and Sidney was shooting his fifth,so Billy couldn't lose, only tie.

Alien 3 picture

Plot hole: One alien egg is shown hanging from the wall at the start of this film, yet there's no way it can be there. The queen didn't take any with her from LV426 in 'Aliens', and if she did, she had no opportunity to place them on the Sulaco between exiting the dropship's landing gear, engaging Ripley and being killed.

Raising Cain picture

Plot hole: There's no way Dr. Lynn Waldheim's coat would have fitted Carter.

Passenger 57 picture

Plot hole: When Rane and the other terrorists come out the bottom of the plane and start walking towards the fairgrounds, it is amazing how not one police officer or staff member of the airport notices that they came out from under the plane, or that they don't seem to be walking off the plane like the other passengers.

Pure Country picture

Plot hole: It was Lula's idea to initiate the fraud of using Buddy to replace Dusty at his show in Louisiana. But when Dusty finds out about the fraud, he threatens to sue Buddy - not Lula.

Universal Soldier picture

Plot hole: When Luc and Veronica escape from the motel, they pass by an old lady reading a newspaper. Given that 4 soldiers have been bombing the place for the last 10 minutes it is totally idiotic to think that the old lady would be calmly sitting in the middle of the chaos.

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.

Basic Instinct picture

Plot hole: This is another movie where the cops are too dumb to go out by themselves. The woman who icepicks the first victim (we see) to death would have left enough forensic evidence on the scene to convict her ten times over - skin, hair, sweat, saliva, vaginal fluid, possibly blood, and they all contain DNA in abundance. She had vigorous, sweaty sex with this man and she didn't clean up afterwards (and she couldn't have done so thoroughly enough anyway) so she's left calling cards all over the place. She might as well have left a signed confession, but they can't even identify her. Sharon Stone, for instance, leaves her fingerprints (on the chair and fixtures in the police station) and her saliva (containing epithelial skin cells) on the cigarette butt she discards, also in the police station. She went there of her own accord and these artifacts are legally accessible by the police. It is obvious to anyone that the women who had sex with the victim killed him, and Catherine is most certainly a suspect. They don't have enough to charge her but they would if they did a simple series of tests on the dead man's body - and if she didn't do it, that would eliminate her as a suspect. They don't even check!

Braindead picture

Plot hole: At Vera's funeral, Uncle Les spots Paquita and introduces himself as Lionel's uncle. But since he hasn't got a clue who Paquita is, why does he refer to Lionel instead of Vera. Wouldn't it be natural to introduce himself as Vera's brother, as it's her funeral? (00:40:25)

Captain Ron picture

Plot hole: After Captain Ron gets fired, Martin mentions seeing Roscoe. How does he know who this person is? This is the first time we've heard Roscoe mentioned in the film. Sure we are then shown that Roscoe is the pimp for the prostitute but how did Martin know who he was?

Sidekicks picture

Plot hole: The Frying Dragon team wins the Breaking, Weapons, and Men's Fighting competitions, as well as coming in second place in the Women's Kata, yet they are still only tied for the lead in the end?

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle picture

Plot hole: The only reason the movie takes place is because the news station that Mrs. Mott watches names Clarice as the woman who filled the lawsuit against Mr. Mott. It is completely illegal for broadcasters to name or show a picture of a sexually assaulted victim.

Pet Sematary II picture

Plot hole: The rule is Each buries his own as stated in the first movie. So Gus wouldn't have came back to life because he was buried by Drew and Jeff.
