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)NancyFelix
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)
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.
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.
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.
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. The killer also handled the icepick (which the police take away in an evidence bag) with bare hands - her prints would be all over it. 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 which are an excellent source of DNA) 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.
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.Murfcin
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.
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.Quantom X
New this week Plot hole: While we never see Lisa leave the courtroom at the end to call Judge Malloy to send the fax verifying Jerry Callo, it is possible she snuck away for a minute to do it after the dismissal and before they leave the town. However, Vinnie does not ever seem to mention that he told the judge he is Callo to her so how did she know? He must have mentioned it to her while they were rushing to leave, they were back on speaking terms and she called Malloy.
