Coming to America picture

Plot hole: In the scene when Lisa and Akim are walking up to Akim's door (when Semi is sitting in the hot tub after fixing up their room), they are carrying groceries for Akim to cook Lisa dinner, however when Akim walks into the room (and every shot from inside the room) there is no kitchen for him to cook.

Suggested correction: It is not uncommon for cheap buildings such as this to have a communal kitchen rather than a kitchen in every apartment. The landlord states that there is only one bathroom on that floor so they have to share, and this is also apparently true for the kitchen. It is perfectly reasonable for Akeem and Lisa to go into the apartment to put their coats down, sort the groceries, and then go to the kitchen to actually prepare the food. It is also not unreasonable for there to be no kitchen at all and tenants are forced to use a "hot plate" to cook their meals.

Space Mutiny picture

Plot hole: When Kalgan is torturing Lea, he says that he wants her father's countermeasures in case of emergency. But when she is rescued and finds out MacPhearson is a traitor who is working for Kalgan, Captain Devers is worried because MacPhearson knows all of the ship's countermeasures. If MacPhearson knows the countermeasures, then Kalgon does too, so there is no reason to bring it up while he is torturing Lea.

Working Girl picture

Plot hole: We see Tess wearing Catherine's clothes when Catherine is gone, but Catherine is much slimmer than Tess. They wouldn't fit without being altered and she had no time to do so.

Bull Durham picture

Plot hole: In the game against Fayetteville, Crash puts down two fingers indicating he wants Nuke to throw the curve. When the camera then shows Nuke shaking him off, you can see Fayetteville has a runner on 2nd. Even in the minors the catcher will mix up the signs so the runner on 2nd couldn't steal them and tip the pitch. He'd never just hold down two fingers.
