Despicable Me 2

Continuity mistake: When Gru is attempting to unlock the floor key pad, he triggers an incorrect key and some fire is blown at him. Some smoke is left all over his face. Gru triggers another incorrect key and some darts are launched at him. The smoke is still there, but as he falls over, most of the smoke on his face has gone. The smoke on his right cheek is still there, but has still vanished from his face. (01:04:20)

Suggested correction: I watched the scene carefully. The smoke stains stay there the entire time. When he falls they are perhaps a bit fainter, but still there. When he walks into the elevator and turns toward the camera is very hard to say if all the stains are there or not due his wide smile, and that's only if you pause it.

Plot hole: The rocket is launched with Gru and Lucy attached to it. All of the minions are around them at El Macho's lair at this point. Considering a rocket travels at several hundred miles per hour, when they jump off it almost a minute later they should be several miles away at the very least, but three Minions appear on a boat shortly after. There is no way the three Minions could have reached Gru and Lucy all the way from the lair in that short time. (01:22:05 - 01:23:25)

Suggested correction: Actually, earlier on in the scene, Gru enters El Macho's lair with only two of his remaining minions, despite there being much more that didn't go for the Ice Cream Truck. Therefore, the 3 minions could have been in Gru's basement the whole time. The real problem is, how would they know to go to the volcano?

Plot hole: Lucy jumps from the airliner and flies her hang-glider straight to Eduardo/El Macho's Cinco de Mayo party to find Gru. How did she know Gru would be there? He had no intention of going and only did so after he was pestered into it by the girls on the very night of the party, so he couldn't have told her himself. Shouldn't she have gone to his house instead? (01:09:50)

Gru: Goodnight Margo. Whoa, wait, hold your horses, who are you texting?
Margo: No one, just my friend Avery.
Gru: Oh, Avery, wait. Avery, is that a boy's name or a girl's name?
Margo: Does it matter?
Gru: No, no, it doesn't matter, Unless it's a boy!
