Sing picture

Plot hole: There's no way that Eddie and Nana left the flooded theater without getting a single drop of water on them. The water flooded up to the ceiling and there's no other way to exit besides the front doors, and Moon's secret exit, which also floods. They do not leave through either way.

Norm of the North picture

Plot hole: When Norm is stuck under the satellite tower after disposing of the condos, he has flashbacks to numerous moments earlier on in the movie. One of the flashbacks is of Socrates saluting Norm, but the moment where Socrates salutes Norm did not occur until he was on the cargo ship being shipped off to New York and was something that he did not see Socrates do; there would be no way for Norm to have this flashback. (01:18:00)

Bridget Jones's Baby picture

Plot hole: When Bridget phones Mr. Darcy, she is told that he has left and is in a taxi on his way home, so Bridget decides to walk to his house where she sees him get out of the taxi and meet his ex-wife at the door, and Bridget thinks they are back together. The problem with this is that she is heavily pregnant and she walks a fair bit across London - hard enough to do at the best of times - and that Mr. Darcy was already in the taxi going home, but she managed to arrive at the same time at his house.

Suggested correction: Mr. Darcy may not have gone straight home. He made have needed the taxi to take him to do an errand, he just doesn't mention this when leaving. Plus, there could have been heavier traffic that we don't see which he could have been stuck in.

Trolls picture

Plot hole: The Trolls have shown to be able to do things with their hair that should be impossible, like Poppy walking on her own hair as if they were stairs. So why couldn't they use their hair to pick the lock on the cage Chef puts them in?

Suggested correction: Just because they can do impossible things doesn't mean they can do anything. Even if Trolls could use their hair to pick a lock doesn't mean they'd have the skills to pick a lock. I know people who can't pick a lock with actual lock pick tools.
