Jumanji (1995)

New this week Plot hole: At the end of the film Alan wins the game and all is reversed, Alan returns to the moment he first played the game with Sarah and he's a little boy again. So if all was reversed as if it never happened why does his shack still exist years later in the 2017 film?

New this week Suggested correction: 1. This is a question, not a plot hole. 2. You can't have a plot hole in a film based on what happens in another film made two decades later.

New this week But to answer the question, while all was undone in the real world, that doesn't mean all was undone in the game world. Those are two different things.

New this week Plot hole: If the events of the first film were reversed after Alan Parrish won the game and he was returned to his own time as a boy why would his shack still exist in the game?

New this week Suggested correction: This is a question, not a plot hole. It would seem what happens in the game stays in the game.

New this week Adding to this, the game appears to be its own universe that's laws are not effected by what it does to Earth.

New this month Plot hole: When MacGruder is alerted by the security guard about Taft accessing the restricted file, MacGruder somehow knows the file pertains to the purchase of the faulty equipment even though the guard never said what the file was about.

Halloween (1978)

New this month Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film the Myers' house is within walking distance of the Strode house, both of which are on one side of town, while the Doyle and Wallace houses are on other considering the driving distance Annie and Laurie had to drive to get to them. But at the end of the film somehow the Myers' house is now within walking distance of the Doyle and Wallace houses.

New this week Suggested correction: Annie and Laurie took so long to get to the Doyle and Wallace houses simply because they were cruising around town, giving themselves enough time to smoke Annie's weed. After they leave the hardware store when the sun was setting, they continue killing time. That's why it was completely dark by the time they arrived at their babysitting jobs; they didn't drive directly there. Remember also, Tommy walks to school too. If the Strode and Doyle houses were truly a long drive from each other, he and Laurie would've never crossed paths earlier that morning when she drops the key off. All the characters' houses in the film (and both schools) are within walking distance of each other.

Plot hole: If Gru and Lucy are at the mall tracking down the bad guy and the minions have disappeared then who was watching the girls? Also how did the girls get to the mall in the first place?

R.O.T.O.R. (1987)

Plot hole: Considering everything seen in the film is supposed to be told as a flashback through the narration of the Coldyron it's never explained how the conversation between the couple could even be in the film, since Coldyron wasn't a witness to it.

Slaughter High (1986)

Plot hole: The school is supposed to be rundown and closed after ten years yet Marty somehow manages to get in, rig up all his traps (including the acid through the bath pipes), and setup the reunion supplies without the caretaker ever catching on to anything that's going on. It also begs the question if the caretaker was there the whole time until he was killed how did he not notice the other students waiting outside for several hours or their cars to ask what they were doing while outside?

Plot hole: During the climax with Van Helsing and the Kraken the writers of the film seemed to have forgotten about the powers Dracula has always had. At no point does his super speed or indestructibility ever come into play, he could have easily climbed up to the DJ booth and dealt with Van Helsing in seconds instead of going through the silly DJ battle.

New this month Suggested correction: The kraken was faster and stronger than Dracula, if you watched he kept trying to reach the DJ booth and fight but was stopped each time and nearly crushed. It was said that the kraken was extremely strong and the only thing that could subdue him was a more powerful song than the other.

Plot hole: After Gru and Dru knock Bratt's robot down to the street Bratt resumes using the laser to cut the city up but the robot wouldn't be able to even see over the buildings around it, so how can Bratt even know where to fire the laser at that point, when he can't see what he's hitting?

Suggested correction: I think it's safe to say Bratt doesn't care at this point, from a mix of confusion, desperation and spiteful frustration.

Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Plot hole: Bratt's bubble gum is strong enough to withstand projectiles like bullets, lasers, and even strong enough to carry a tanker into the sky but can't withstand Gru's body weight when he crashes into it before "happy birthday Dan".

Sudden Death (1995)

Plot hole: It's hard to believe that not one single civilian at the game (other than the main characters) is aware of what is going on outside. With hundreds of cops and paramedics surrounding the building and the explosions that happen during the game someone would have figured out something was up long before the end of the film.

Spy Game (2001)

Plot hole: Muir is retiring after 30 years with the C.I.A. You would think considering his years of service and the people he was working with (especially Troy) it would have already been known that he had been married only once and not four times like he was letting on.

Mr. Bean (1989)

The Trouble With Mr. Bean - S1-E8

Trivia: Up until this episode we have never seen the driver of the blue Reliant that's always had the misfortune of running into Mr. Bean. In this episode that same car is parked in front of the dentist office which is then pushed back by Bean's car. It is possible then that the unseen driver could either be the woman with small child or the patient who leaves just before Bean meets the dentist.

Sing (2016)

Continuity mistake: When the gang arrived for their first day of closed rehearsals the clock on the front of the theater says about 8:30, but just a few minutes later when Buster goes to get the power back on the clock now says about 11:50.

Sing (2016)

Other mistake: Considering how famous Nana Noodleman is it's odd that everyone is surprised that she's still alive.

Outland (1981)

Stupidity: When the shuttle arrives with the assassins, O'Niel is shown loading a shotgun, then he carries that gun when he runs to his office. When he leaves his office again to confront the assassins he grabs another shotgun from the locker. Why didn't he just grab the gun he walked in with?

Merry Christmas Mr. Bean - S1-E10

Revealing mistake: When Bean is driving down the street with the TV on his car, the sign for the store on the right is backwards, revealing a flipped shot.

U.S. Marshals (1998)

Plot hole: After the police arrest Roberts he's flagged for a federal warrant, but Lamb and Barrows don't show up to inquire about him until long after the plane crash. Shouldn't they have been there to pick Roberts up at the police station instead of being sent immediately to a federal penitentiary?

Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: During the intermission break of the championship game, Joe shouts about scouts from the NHL in the stands waiting to sign up the team. But Reggie is mystified about this before sending his team out to get rough again. Why doesn't the coach of his own team know about people from the NHL waiting to sign his players up?

Slap Shot (1977)

Plot hole: When the lie about the team moving to Florida hits the public, nobody other than Ned Braden bothers to look into it. Even Joe, the general manager never asks where it came from, which would be something he would know about before the press did.
