Fargo

Plot hole: After the kidnappers kill the trooper and then one chases after the 2 eyewitnesses you can see that they are on a straight road (no turns and he catches up to them fairly quickly) but the next morning when Marge arrives on the scene of the 2 bodies she arrives from the direction of the trooper's body (the first shooting). After examining the bodies of the eyewitnesses she asks her deputy "where the trooper is" and the Deputy points in the direction she just came from and states "down the road a bit" how did she miss it? She would have had to have driven right past the trooper's crime scene to get to the 2 bodies.

Suggested correction: The trooper wasn't visible from the road, he was dragged into the ditch.She also could have been asking if he was in the hospital or morgue.

Plot hole: When Jerry thinks the investment he has proposed to Wade will work out, he tells Shep he may not need the help of the two kidnappers he put him in touch with. Shep then tells Jerry that he only put him in touch with, and vouched for, one of the kidnappers: Gaear. He makes it very clear that he has never heard of and does not vouch for Carl Showalter. However, at the beginning of the movie, Carl specifically mentioned Shep, saying "Shep didn't tell us much..." etc.) And when Shep is told by Marge that involvement in the kidnapping/murders could put him back in Stillwater, he knows exactly where to find Carl to give him a thorough beating. When he shows up, Carl even recognizes him ("Shep, what the Hell are you doing, I'm banging that girl.") Shep obviously knew Carl, and had no reason to hide it from Jerry, as Gaear was the more dangerous of the two.

Plot hole: At the garage, Shep says to Jerry that he does not know Carl, and doesn't vouch for Carl, only for Grimsrud. Obviously the two guys don't know each other. So, how can Carl react by shouting "Shep" when he is attacked in the bedroom by the Indian while humping the escort?

Trivia

The movie wasn't based on a true story. The Coen brothers just threw that in for whatever reason.
