Gone Girl (2014)

2 plot holes - chronological order

(3 votes)

Plot hole: SPOILER: When Amy comes back, doctors would have checked her non-existent head wound from the "abduction", from where she supposedly lost that much blood. That would and should have revealed all of Amy's lies.

Plot hole: Amy calls the Police about the shed before going to Desi. They watch Nick's TV statement together. The shed is only searched by the police after the statement. Which would imply the police sat on the report for several days before investigating.

Factual error: SPOILER: Amy Dunne returns covered with blood. After being at the hospital, and in the interview/questioning, she is still covered with blood. After being medically examined, she would have been washed clean, not just dressed over all the mess. But it gets worse; when returning to Nick in their house, she has a crisp hospital garment, but is still covered in blood! And it gets even worse; when they are in the shower, the blood on her body, which by now would have been at least a day old, would have been dried, caked and brownish color, but what she washes off is very fresh.

Trivia: Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon was a fan of the novel and purchased the rights, intending to play the role of Amy herself. However, once David Fincher was attached as director, she opted to serve only as a producer, realizing she wasn't right for the role.

Question: After Amy has killed Mr Collins, as she's climbing off the bed, she puts her hand securely between her legs, like she is trying to hold onto his semen. Is that what she's doing?

Chosen answer: That may have been what she was doing. Amy was attempting to make it look like she'd been repeatedly raped by Collins, so she was doing various things to herself, like using a bottle to self-inflict trauma onto her privates to look like forced sex.
