Star Trek: Insurrection

Plot hole: After Riker takes the Enterprise through the Briar Patch to communicate with Starfleet he returns to rescue Picard from the collector in mere minutes, even though it was supposed to be a 2-day journey.

Revealing mistake: When the villagers are running from the attack on their village, they run across a bridge that gets blown up. If you look, you can see that just as it explodes, several people change the direction they are running so as they can plunge dramatically into the water. (00:55:40)

Trivia: In the end credits, an actor is credited as playing Young Ruafo. There are no scenes in the film which this character appears, this is a scene cut from the film, but they forgot to erase the credit. The explanation is that young Ruafo was filmed in the original Insurrection ending, before producers decided on a different (more action based) death for Ruafo and so had him burn on the exploding ship.
