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. (00:53:35)Quantom X
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.randy29
Plot hole: In the second Shrek movie, we find out that Fairy Godmother and the King had a deal that Prince Charming would save Princess Fiona from the keep, hence becoming her true love and breaking the curse. In the fourth movie, we start with Rumple monologuing about how he almost had the Kingdom by signing a deal with the King. Why would the King be so desperate to try and reverse the curse by signing a deal when he knows he has a prior attempt through Prince Charming, assuming it would take the same time for the messenger to return with news about Charming and Fiona either way?
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.kh1616
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: 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.GalahadFairlight
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.The_Iceman
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. (00:35:00)A Demon
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. (00:55:40 - 00:56:30)phiberoptik
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.footnotefetish
