Even the most diehard movie goer would have to admit that movies get things wrong. Quite often, in fact! Sometimes, you only notice these movie plot holes after the fact. Like when you’re just getting home from the theater and realize the bad guy’s evil plan was entirely based on several unlikely coincidences. There’s even a name for this phenomenon: “refrigerator logic.” Other times, a movie goof is so obvious and ridiculous that you laugh out loud right in the theater. Like the notorious “Nerdy girl just has to take off her glasses to become a 10” trope.
We can all name a few of our favorite movie plot holes. And when Twitter user @jazz_inmypants asked his followers to name their favorite movie errors…
everyone please share something that bothered u about a movie that isn’t talked about enough.
i’ll go first.
naming the ant in bugs life “Flick” is super insensitive to ants that have died from flicking. it’s like if they named bambi “Shotgun”

5. Nothing gets by a mythology nerd.
in disney’s “Hercules”, the greek mythology is all screwed up. it wasn’t Hades who wanted to kill Hercules, it was Hera. She wanted him dead because Hercules was an offspring of Zeus sleeping with one of his mistresses from earth.

6. Asinine accents.
In Disney animated movies, the main character has an American accent, the bad guy has an English accent, and everyone else has the accent of the country it’s set in.

13. You can always count on Mongolian Uber drivers.
I always wondered how Batman got back to Gotham in the Dark Knight Rises. He crawled out of a hole in the middle of the desert with no money and no ID and suddenly just pops back up in Gotham which is under fascist rule at the time?
