Plot hole: When Will is on the airplane talking to his mom, there's a knock at her front door and she says, "There are men in suits here". However, when we see her open the front door, it's covered in thick frosted glass which would make it impossible for her to determine what the people were wearing.

White Chicks (2004)

Plot hole: Given that the FBI was constantly monitoring the Wilson sister's room with a camera outside the door, they would have seen Kevin leaving the room dressed as himself and recognized him.

WarGames (1983)

Plot hole: At the end, the suggestion to unplug W.O.P.R. to prevent the missiles from being launched was actually the right suggestion. Given that W.O.P.R. was guessing the launch code by brute force, the actual order to launch the missiles wouldn't be given until the launch code was determined and therefore the silos would not interpret anything until they received not only the order to launch but with the right launch code.

Plot hole: When Eliane tells the bomber that he should really put his briefcase in the overhead compartment, there are no overhead compartments in the shuttle to be seen.

WarGames (1983)

Plot hole: Given the number of possible combinations the launch code could be (over 3600 trillion possibilities) it makes no sense that W.O.P.R cannot process that significantly quicker given how easily it's able to calculate thousands of ICBM impacts, damage inflicted, casualties, etc. for each "War Scenario" at the end as quickly as it does to determine a winner.

WarGames (1983)

Plot hole: Having a launch code that is visible to anyone who passes the control terminal does not make any sense especially given the power behind what that code does (launching of nuclear warheads).

Scream (1996)

Plot hole: Given the magnitude of the crimes that occur at the house at the end, the police can be seen in the last shot dusting Dewey's truck. If the police are so careful as to dust for prints when the entire rest of the crime scene is heavily contaminated by everyone from the EMTs, Gale doing her news, police, etc. makes what they are doing seem silly.

Plot hole: The super warriors that are given the venom are supposed to be fearless and without self preservation. However, during the scene in the Sahara base when they are helping to get the warheads back from the Joes, one of those men screams out in fear as he falls down the shaft, which makes no sense as the one guy did not scream in frustration when he was bitten earlier by the deadly snake and knew he would die.

Evolution (2001)

Plot hole: Because humans have a layer of subcutaneous fat under the skin, the bug that travels under Harry's skin would have caused not only significant damage but an amazing amount of pain while moving around. There would have also been severe internal damage caused by the bug if it traveled into his colon where they ended up removing it from.

Suggested correction: Harry could be too high on adrenaline to feel pain, and we never see whatever follow up procedure they performed "there" either.

Event Horizon (1997)

Plot hole: The use of massive explosives to separate a ship makes no sense as the explosion would send fragments at high velocity in every direction guaranteeing it would penetrate whatever ship is remaining. As we see in the final scene when the ship does blow apart, it is not a precise controlled detonation to sever connections but a total (and glamorous) explosion which makes no sense whatsoever.
