Robocop

Plot hole: When Murphy is in the changeroom at the station, he learns that an officer has just died and that his funeral (according to the captain) would be the next day. There's simply no way a funeral can take place one day after someone's death. All the planning, prep work and getting the body released to the funeral home would take about a week...plus many other things. Simply cannot be done.

Plot hole: Murphy can't arrest OCP Executive, Dick Jones as it's against his Directive. But with the video recording of Boddicker admitting that Dick Jones is the man behind the murder of Bob Morton, any other police officer could have made the arrest anytime.

Trivia: Director Paul Verhoven makes a cameo appearance in the film when RoboCop arrests Leon in the disco. After Leon kicks RoboCop in the groin and he falls in agony, we cut to a man laughing madly at the camera and waving his arms. That's Paul. (00:56:00)

Answer: When Bob Morton is told by a tech that one of Murphy's arm was saved, Bob stated that he wants total body prosthesis. Meaning Robocop's entire body was synthetic. None of his actual body was used. The only thing that was used was Murphy's actual face.

Also, his human brain, and possibly his spine, where OCP could wire him into the suit.
