Plot hole: In the Ice Tunnel scene, Manny, Sid, and Diego come to a stop on the vertical block of ice. It breaks, and they slide through a 'field' of icicles sticking out of the ground. Their 'sled' is shaved down to nothing, indicating that the icicles are sharp. After going through the same tunnel as the baby, how did the baby make it through that field? (00:46:53)
Plot hole: The psycho coed murders her lecherous professor (played by William Shatner) by pushing him out a window. In the very next scene, she's driving around with his body propped up in the passenger seat of her car. She weighed no more than 100 lbs., tops, and Shatner was easily at least 250 when this film was made. No way she could have dragged him to her car and lifted his dead weight into the seat, no matter how much adrenalin she was pumped with. Physically impossible.Jean G
Plot hole: When Melanie goes to meet Jake at the beach, it is pouring rain. Her hair is soaked and her dress is wet and muddy at the bottom. When they arrive at the wedding reception, her hair is much drier and her dress is perfectly dry and clean. (01:38:25 - 01:41:40)
Plot hole: During the boxing match where Eddie Murphy is wearing the special contact lenses, he sees that Owen Wilson's life is in danger. So much so, that he rushes out of the ring instead of doing his usual grand-standing. But when he shows up at the tower to rescue Owen, he has on pants and a shirt. I guess he figured Owen could hold out long enough for him to get dressed?
Plot hole: When Hugh is walking near the park gate, he should have seen Marcus. Marcus was on the same side of the post as Will was.
Plot hole: The fact that David becomes conscious after being hit and left back is dramatically fine but there is no aftermath - he misses to finish dealing with Ali and friends at that point.
Plot hole: When Pistachio and Jennifer go to the toy convention to find Bowman she says her name is Barbara, and Bowman invites her to his house. When Pistachio comes looking for her at the door (as the German Guy and the Snobby English Guy) he says he needs to talk to Jennifer Baker. Wouldn't he ask to see Barbara instead of Jennifer? Also Bowman knows her as Barbara and didn't say anything about him calling her Jennifer.
Plot hole: When Diz is called into the Principal's office following the first game, he is questioned about the prom, which is scheduled in two weeks. In that two weeks, the football team goes through a whole season, including the state championship. When do they have time for school? (00:52:25)
Plot hole: In the scene after Chris' disastrous lunch date with Caroline, he is seen signing autographs before getting into his limo; however, he starts making out the autograph to Amber before he has even asked her name. He tries to cover by then asking for her name, and acts surprised/shocked that it is indeed Amber. Both he and the fan start laughing before he spots Caroline and Rachel coming out of the hotel and pushes Jerry into the limo. (01:01:57)
Plot hole: When Delila finds out who Jimmy really is, she takes his tuxedo and is apprehended by the bad guys. She then turns on her homing device on her necklace. The office says it will take 20 minutes to get to her. From that statement to when the CSA finally arrives, Jimmy has time to go to Devlin's, write him a letter, discover water striders, find his suit, and get back to Delila and fight the bad guys. THEN CSA shows up. The timing is really off.Jack's Revenge
Plot hole: In the armored car robbery scene, we see the guys hoist the car over a barricade with a crane, then nonchalantly open the driver's door of the truck to get the driver and co-driver out. Armored cars' driver's doors can only be released from inside the cab, by the driver with an electric lock, unless the person has a key for the door. If the driver was halfway doing his job, they would have had a much tougher time getting in, not to mention the fact that the driver is also armed, and the majority of armored cars also have shotguns in the cab. Since none of the gang had a key for the driver's door, the easiest thing for the driver to do would be to just sit there and either wait for help or drive away. The cargo area of the truck is also bulletproof and not accessible from the cab. The drivers could have simply let them take the gold if they didn't want to get involved, and not risk injury or death by opening the cab doors.
Plot hole: When Ray reprimands Barry for having a public (deadly) fight with Freddy, Ray goes back to his car and drives it forward to hint that Barry should take his fight elsewhere. This all happens in the three seconds it takes for Barry to thank Darcy for his help. Ray's car must have already been started, and Ray would have been the fastest man on earth to make that action in the shortest space of time.
Plot hole: When the pilot rolls the plane to dump the suitcase carrying the bomb, Snake grabs hold and falls out of the plane with it. Snake saves himself from falling to his death by grabbing the railing of the open door. The weight of the suitcase would have either ripped one of Snake's limbs off or would have ripped the railing from the door.Rlvlk
