Charlie's Angels

Plot hole: In the Redstar mainframe, we are told that the floor of the vault will trigger the alarm if it receives more than 0.25 seconds of contact (apparently even with the security checks). What would be the point of the bosses going through all of those security measures if they would just set the alarm off anyway? Surely once the girls have faked the fingerprint and retina scans, they don't then need to flip across the floor! (00:33:55)

Plot hole: When the girls found Knox in the room, they had to break down the door because it was bolted from inside. Now wouldn't that be suspicious? He's in a room where the only way out is through a door that was bolted from the inside... (00:26:20)

Plot hole: When the Angels rescue Knox, why is the light swinging above his head? He's tied to a chair, the Creepy Thin Man's obviously not been through, because there's no exit aside from the bolted way in, so what's moved it? (00:26:20)

Plot hole: In the scene where Cameron Diaz is gaining entry to the Redstar mainframe, she wears a white suit to remain "undetected" in the antechamber. And then, she opens the door into a dark room, meaning that the security camera will spot the door opening if not the person opening it. Whats the point of wearing a white suit to hide from a camera, if the door opening will show up anyway? (00:41:10)

Revealing mistake: The caravan is shot-up with machine guns - so why are the bullet holes (the metal of the caravan's walls) bending outwards? (00:50:45)

Trivia: The Thin Man, who doesn't speak at all, originally had lines of dialogue. They were removed at Crispin Glover's request, and the filmmakers agreed it would make the role more mysterious.

More trivia for Charlie's Angels

Question: At the start of the film Drew (disguised as an African Prince) drags a guy with a bomb strapped to his chest from an aircraft. What was the bomber hoping to achieve? If he was going to destroy the aircraft - why was he interested in diamonds if he was about to die? If he was selling the device to the African - why was it ticking? If he was negotiating to be paid to not destroy the aircraft - what was his plan for escaping after he deactivated the device?

Chosen answer: I suspect that like much in this movie, it was merely conceived to be an 'exciting' opening for the movie and logic played little part in its inclusion.
