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.

Mac and Me picture

Plot hole: Mac stretches his bare hand to grab the Coke, but that's impossible, because the bear suit has the hand sewn to the sleeve, so he should have broken the suit. In fact, after he grabs the Coke, the bear-glove suddenly appears on his hand, without no one having put it.
