Smokey and the Bandit II

Plot hole: Snowman manages to unload the elephant, summons twenty trucks to the middle of a desert and gets miles ahead of the Bandit for his approach, in what appears to be about ten minutes of time.

Plot hole: We are supposed to believe that The Bandit somehow built a net out of rope large enough to support a 9,000 lb elephant, was able to suspend this 9,000 lb elephant (inside an enclosed trailer, no less), all by himself in one night and on a drunken stupor. That's some talent.

Plot hole: How can a doctor (not a veterinarian) with no medical equipment tell for certain how far along a pregnant elephant is, especially when the gestation period for an elephant is 20-22 months?

Continuity mistake: At the Gator Motel, after Cledus and Bandit get part of the money, when Bandit starts crying about Frog and blows his nose into the money, there is a side shot showing a wad of bills in Bandit's shirt pocket before he actually puts the bills into his pocket in a following shot.

Trivia: In the huge scene with the big rigs and all, the police car crashes off of the car trailer truck. But this stunt was really a world record for the longest car stunt that was powered by the car's own engine. The distance was well over 100 feet.
