    Default Plotholes that ruin movies

    I'll start:

    The Godfather: How can Kay be Michael's girlfriend for so long without knowing that his family is in the mafia? Talk about improbable.

    Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan: How could Chekov land on the same planet Khan was imprisoned on years ago and not notice? Apparently, to be the best and brightest of Starfleet you have to be thoroughly inept.

    Casablanca: Ok, so Humphrey Bogart fought against fascism in Spain, and suddenly he doesn't give a damn about Nazis taking over Europe? Not to mention the fact that his best friend is a collaborationist French policeman. Talk about inconsistent characterization.

    Citizen Khan: This guy's a billionaire and he can't afford a new sled? Give me a break.

    It's a Wonderful Life: After the angel does his magic, George Bailey's driver's license is gone. Fine, but why didn't his clothes disappear also?

    The Empire Strikes Back You're telling me that the elite of the Imperial Fleet can't detect a junky freighter hanging out on the back of THEIR OWN SHIP? This makes the "forgetting how to run in a diagonal line away from a falling spaceship" scene in Prometheus look like a masterpiece of cinema.

    Ghostbusters (1984) Right-wing screed about the evils of government regulation.

    The Last Temptation of Christ: Not only do the characters talk in a way no modern human would talk, they also fail to talk in biblical Hebrew like the real Jesus would have done. And don't get me started with the bad guy from Spider-Man playing our lord and savior. I guess I missed the part in the gospels where he talked about the necessity of killing Spider-Man. The Green Goblin as Jesus? I THINK NOT!

    Animal House: How is a college fraternity able to so brazenly disregard the rules of the campus and not get punished for it? Totally took me out of the movie.

    The Two Towers Sam mentions "taters, boil 'em, mash 'em, stick em in a stew" but potatoes didn't exist in medieval England.

    Dr. Strangeglove: This shows James Earl Jones piloting a bomber, but it's the early 60s and segregation was still a thing.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark: The movie shows Indiana Jones fighting Nazis, but it's supposed to take place in 1936. World War II didn't start until 1941. Looks like you need a history lesson, Mr. Lucas!

    Include your own!

    Ms. Doubtfire: Next time Robin Williams, stick with a sex! Nothin against transgender people, but this movie was too confusing. Who can grasp this pretentious, arthouse garbage?

    Ms. Doubtfire: Dear Miranda (Sally Field), you didn't think it was strange your elderly nanny had the shoulders of an NFL linebacker and a bulging Adam's apple? You left this person with your kids and didn't even bother to actually check their references?!?!

    Ghostbusters 2016: Left-wing screed about the evils of men.
    Blues Brothers: Not as topical and relevant as Blues Brothers 2000.
    The Last Jedi: Kylo Ren shirtless was distracting and unnecessary, as well as destructive to the wholesome American values I cherish in Donald Trump. Sexy costumes as fanservice? Not in my Star Wars!

    Jackie Not enough reptillians.
    National Treasure Too many reptillians.
    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: Too much gambling.
