Best movie plot holes of 2010
Plot hole: When Astrid gets on Toothless for the first time, Toothless takes off uncontrollably and tries to scare her. Hiccup seems to have no control over him at this time. How is that so if with the new tail fin, Toothless cannot fly without Hiccup's precise control of the tail fin? That whole sequence would have fallen apart. This mistake was even admitted to on the DVD Commentary.
Plot hole: In Aunty Em's Emporium, when Medusa turns the older woman to stone, she has hold of Annabeth's wrist and Annabeth cannot free herself. Grover comes along later, as Percy is keeping Medusa busy, and breaks the arm of the statue that is holding Annabeth (near the elbow). Annabeth is able to easily pry the statue's severed arm's grip from her wrist, even though the fingers and thumb weren't broken at all, meaning she could have easily freed herself at any time.
Plot hole: The movie is based in 1986 after the group time travels from 2010. That makes it a 24 year trip back in time. It is stated that Jacob is 20 years old. That is an error as this would make him roughly around 23 or 24 if he was conceived in 1986, which we saw near the end of the movie.
Plot hole: The first night the toys spent in the Daycare, when Buzz finds Lotso's band playing in the vending machine, there are no trucks patrolling the hallways, and the monkey does not sound the alarm when he sees that Buzz escaped. However, when Woody comes back later, he finds out that those security measures operate every single night.
Plot hole: In the first film it takes Shrek and Donkey several days to get to Fiona and then several days to get back to Duloc. In this film, Shrek only has one day as an ogre, yet he still manages to get to and from the castle that Fiona was locked in.
Plot hole: How does Horatio (a Lilliputian) get to Glumdaclitch's dollhouse, which is on the second floor of the house? Jack Black is twelve time smaller than the Brobdingnagian, and the Lilliputians are twelve times smaller than him. How did he get up the stairs? Getting to the second story of the dollhouse would be challenging enough.
Plot hole: When Andromeda and Perseus wake up on the beach, Andromeda tells Perseus that Argos needs a new leader/king. The problem with this is there is nothing onscreen to show that she even knew her father the King had died. She was hanging by her arms facing the Kraken and she couldn't turn around. By the time her father died, she was already falling into the sea, so again, she shouldn't even know her father has died.
Plot hole: When Gru and his minions step out of the vault with the shrink ray he notices Vector walking by. Even if they managed to get inside the air duct before being seen by Vector in those few short seconds they didn't have the time to close the vault door as well without being noticed.
Plot hole: In the end, all they have to do is ask the President, when he's conscious (Liev didn't kill him; he just knocked him unconscious), who killed everyone in the control room and nearly killed him. He would know who the traitor is and it's not Salt - when they look back at the facts, they'll see how Salt only killed when she absolutely had to, and how she saved lives and stopped a 3rd world war.
Plot hole: Gideon speaks to Jill about her fingerprints being all over the bear trap. When he does he says that there is a new game going on, referring to Bobby's game. However, the police are unaware of this game at this point. He can't be referring to the garage trap as he says that the game is going on, and the garage trap has already happened.
Plot hole: During the scene where John (Russell) decides he needs to break into the medical van, he watches an infamous YouTube video about using a tennis ball to open "car door locks." Unfortunately for John, the YouTube video was faked, and in reality was proven to be fake on the TV show MythBusters.

Plot hole: When Morgan first meets Scott, she pretends to have been called in to a place where she volunteers. With Scott always wanting to volunteer but never having time, you would think that he would taken an interest in her volunteer work, and would soon find out she was a liar.
Plot hole: When Dylan enters the vampire Vargas's bedroom to interrogate him, Dylan frequently steps away from the door to let sunlight in to burn Vargas, so that Vargas will cooperate with the interrogation. Vargas is in his bed and could easily cover himself with his sheets to block the sunlight, but never does.
Plot hole: Near the end of the film, Carrie gets a quarter pipe. The problem is that there is no pavement anywhere near the farm which was expressed explicitly earlier in the film. Because of this, she won't be able to use the quarter pipe anyway, especially since it is about 2 ft at the base so they would definitely need to build the rest of the ramp.
Plot hole: According to the channel 8 live report "the railway company is still not commenting." Yet they knew what happened to make 777 unmanned, that Dewey was the driver, his age, that he would face disciplinary action, that it was Ryan scott attempting to board, his age, that he was an ex marine, that he'd just came back from Afghanistan, that Judd Stewart was driving the front loco and his age, the names of Frank and Will and what they were attempting to do. That's an awful lot of accurate, detailed information when the company is apparently not commenting.
Plot hole: Milo and Nicole go to the club and ask for John. After failing to convince the woman that he works in the senate for Kansas, the woman looks at him and calls him 'Senator' but calls Nicole 'Mrs Boyd'. There was no mention any of their names (even though Milo's surname is Boyd). If the woman calls Nicole Mrs Boyd, she surely must know Milo and that Nicole was his wife.
