Plot hole: Peter took the $100,000 bribe White gave him and turned it into $5,000,000 by betting on his team. He did this, so he could buy enough shares of Global Gym stock and take over the company, and in the process kick out White as the CEO. The problem is, Global Gym is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, and 5 million wouldn't be near enough to gain control of the company.

Suggested correction: Where did you get the figure of hundreds of million? Earlier in the film White said Global Gym was worth $4 million.

Companies must meet shareholder requirements and have $60 million IPO market value or $100 million market value for public shares.

Then a character mistake should be made to reflect that.

Ella Enchanted (2004)

Plot hole: Breaking the spell should have been quite easy for Ella to accomplish. All she needed to do was have someone like Mandy or Areida command her to never follow another command again, and the spell would have been broken.

What about Bob? (1991)

Plot hole: When Dr. Marvin is trying to get Bob to leave the night before his television interview, he can't leave because it's pouring rain. He also can't drive him because their car was left at the boat dock. However, Dr. Marvin could have easily called for a cab to drive Bob back to where he's staying.

Suggested correction: This assumes that there is a taxi service in the small town in which they reside.

LorgSkyegon

This is obviously a tourist town, which would likely create the need for a taxi service.

Mike Lynch

It also seems to be a fairly secluded and very rich tourist town with cars almost necessary to get around.

LorgSkyegon

Suggested correction: At that time of night in that condition, I highly doubt calling a taxi cab would be easy, especially since Bob lives right down the road, no taxi far away would come just to drive someone a short distance like that.

Plot hole: How is it that the Flying Elvis' have an extra parachute on board for Jack?
