Plot hole: Where did Thomson and Thompson get the pyjamas from? Tintin, Haddock, Calculus and Wolff did not bring any pyjamas aboard the shuttle with them because they were planning on sleeping in their clothes and Thomson and Thompson were only on the rocket because they were inspecting it before take-off, so they wouldn't have brought anything with them.

Plot hole: Two clown performers finish their act and the curtain closes. Tintin and Haddock then talk for a bit about who will be performing before the musician, but within the span of merely just a few seconds, the next act is suddenly on stage and ready to perform. No way could the clowns have left the stage and the next act have been set up within that short of a time span. (00:04:45)Casual Person
Plot hole: When Tintin is listening in on Dawson's conversation, he realises an alarm clock had been planted in his coat pocket as a prank by Abdullah. Even if he didn't see the clock in his pocket beforehand, there is no reason why he wouldn't have felt the added weight the clock would have had on the coat. (00:09:35)Casual Person
Plot hole: Whilst Allan is searching the decks below for Tintin, a crew member is keeping watch of Captain Haddock in his quarters. Tintin secretly reveals to Haddock that he is hiding underneath his bed, without letting the crew member notice him and Haddock then looks towards him. The crew member was watching Haddock the entire time, so how does he not notice Haddock looking toward Tintin? (00:18:20)Casual Person
Plot hole: Thomson and Thompson fall asleep whilst driving their jeep and are arrested because whilst they were asleep, they drove into and damaged several people's markets and as well as driving into the wall of a building. Although the decision to arrest them would seem normal due to the vandalism, it does not make sense why both of the detectives would have gotten arrested. Even if they both fell asleep at the wheel, only one of the detectives was actually responsible for the vandalism caused by this. (00:19:00)Casual Person
Plot hole: When the helicopter flies over the jungle, Haddock inadvertently walks in view of the helicopter and the pilot of the helicopter notices him, assuming it to be a Picaro. Haddock then trips into the river, but despite being watched by the pilot of the helicopter the entire time, the helicopter pilot doesn't notice him falling into the river and instead assumes he just disappeared. (00:26:20)Casual Person
Plot hole: The torn off part of the Crabe Extra wrapper that Tintin discovers from the drowning victim appears completely fine, despite the fact that in the previous scene, Daws, the drowning victim, had scrunched up the wrapper and put in his pocket and was then thrown into the river, whilst the wrapper was still in his pocket.

Plot hole: When the Chinese man who visits Tintin goes crazy from the same type of dart that was shot at Doctor Sarcophagus, he tells the guard to go to the Maharajah's son. About 9 seconds later, they are seen bringing the boy back inside. There wouldn't have been enough time for them to get all the way to the ground considering they were a floor above them a few seconds ago. (00:03:05)Casual Person
Plot hole: The doctor at the mental hospital reads the letter Doctor Finney wrote him. It read that it was Tintin who was insane and Doctor Sarcophagus who wasn't insane. However, although he totally bought it, he never even took into account that Doctor Sarcophagus was pant-less or the fact that he was dancing like an Egyptian guy, which would have been enough to prove that Sarcophagus was the insane one.
