* In ''Film/BatmanForever'', both Two-Face and The Riddler learn Batman's SecretIdentity and swing by Wayne Manor to trash the place. The former ends up dead and the latter so mentally broken he's no threat of ever revealing it, so HappyEnding right? What about the entire ''team of henchmen'' who went along to help? Even ''if'' Riddler and Two-Face never told any of their henchmen the reason they were attacking Wayne Manor (which is already a stretch), it's incredibly unlikely they didn't figure it out once they got there.

* [[{{Irony}} Ironically]] enough, ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' had this with its titular musical (apparently called ''Twinkle Towne''), in the first film. You'd think with all the importance placed on its callbacks, we'd get some focus on the musical itself, like maybe showing Troy and Gabriella practicing songs or scenes from it, right? Well, you'd be wrong - after the performance of '' Breaking Free'' it's never brought up again, not even in the sequels.

** The short "Oily to Bed, Oily to Rise" has the Stooges destroy the saws of a farmer. The farmer warns them that they will work for him until they pay for the broken saws. However, in the next scene, the Stooges are walking on a dirt road. We're LeftHanging as to what happened with the farmer - did the Stooges replace the saws or did they run out on him when he wasn't looking?

* TheGrimReaper is apparently still running amok in the "real" world at the end of ''Film/LastActionHero''. Since he declares that he's following a list, and doesn't touch people who aren't on it, he presumably doesn't make any real impact on the world - he only touches people who would have died anyway.

** In ''Film/CasinoRoyale1967'', the end title theme says that there are 'seven James Bonds.' Actually, there are eight in the film - David Niven (Bond himself), Peter Sellers (Tremble, codenamed James Bond), Terence Cooper (Cooper, codenamed James Bond), Woody Allen (Jimmy Bond), Daliah Lavi (Lady James Bond), Joanna Pettet (Mata Bond, codenamed James Bond), Barbara Bouchet (Moneypenny, codenamed James Bond), and Ursula Andress (Vesper, codenamed James Bond). However, the scene that accompanies this song, with the 'seven James Bonds' in Heaven, is lacking Terence Cooper, who apparently somehow DIDN'T die in the casino explosion...? Or they may mean Lady James Bond, aka The Detainer; she was last seen before her attempted escape from a second-story bathroom window. Given the extended period of time between her entering the bathroom and the explosion, it can be assumed that she either fell to her death (the first floor IS rather tall), or that she was still trying to descend the drain-pipe during the explosion.

* ''Film/RedLights'' left many plot threads dangling. [[spoiler: Did Buckley call ''himself'' all those times with his powers and not know it? Was he responsible for the strange things going on at Silver's office, and were the apparently possessed people there stooges, or did he unconsciously influence them? Additionally, while Silver's supposed "thought transference" was explained, they never said anything about the "thought photographs" which he produced that Shackleton said had "no scientific explanation." Of course that could have been faked too- you don't see how though.]]

* ''Film/TheWarriors'': Who was that talking on the phone to Luther at certain points in the film? This person is never named or even ever heard speaking, and all the viewers learn is that whoever it is must be in on the conspiracy against the Warriors somehow ("We set, all right") and is someone Luther knows on a fairly personal basis ("Yeah, you take care of yourself"). Many fans have speculated that it must have been some representative of the New York [[TheMafia Mafia]] - a group that would naturally want to disrupt the alliance of all the street gangs and might have paid off Luther to make sure that didn't happen.

* For the first third of ''Film/Chef!'', Scarlett Johansson's character, Molly, seems to be the female lead, but when the action switches from California to Miami she vanishes from the movie. No affront to realism, just to our expectations. The cameos by Dustin Hoffman and Robert Downey Jnr do advance the plot (such as it is) but we expect Johansson's character to be developed.
* At the beginning of [[Film/SiebenZwerge 7 Zwerge - Der Wald ist nicht genug]], two kids report a fire to Speedy. He makes them promise to keep it going until he gets there because he hates it when he responds to a fire only to find that it already went out before he arrived. The kids agree, but before Speedy can get to the fire, he is recruited into the main plot, and the fire is never heard about again. One wonders how long they managed to keep it going.

''(he never does)'' [[note]] According to WordOfGod, the watermelon was part of a Banzai Institute project to combat hunger in Third World countries by air-dropping genetically modified fruits and vegetables designed to remain intact after being dropped from extremely high heights. They dropped the project because they realized that in order to remain intact, the ultra-durable fruit would have to be so tough that it would be inedible.[[/note]]

* Mexican MaskedLuchador films are not known for rigorous plot construction, but ''ElSantoYBlueDemonContraDraculaYElHombreLobo'' has a particularly bad example of this trope. At the end of the film, the luchador heroes and Santo's girlfriend discuss what to tell the little girl character about her horrifying ordeal when she wakes up in the morning. They decide to tell her it was just a bad dream. Which, yeah, that'll work... at least until she wonders where her mother is, and they have to tell her that she had been transformed into one of the living dead, and (the film implies but does not directly state) sent to her eternal rest after the destruction of the two titular monsters.

** A rather egregious error that the sequel makes is writing out Katie in a rather sloppy manner just because Lyndsy Fonseca couldn't commit full time to the role. The writers pretty much make her forget why [[AesopAmnesia she was with Dave in the first place]], [[WhatTheHellHero accuse him of statutory rape out of the blue]] and when Dave explains it off, [[NiceJobBreakingItHero change her original good nature and make her a cheater]] just to get rid of her more quickly. She still knows he's Kick-Ass! If she's angry at him, why keep it a secret or why not tell anybody else?

The weight of her character is ignored because the writers rushed past it without thinking.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Ted'': Mila Kunis was unable to commit to ''Ted 2'' due to her pregnancy, so Lori was written out as her and John getting a divorce after two years of marriage. Considering her role in the first one and what she did for John and Ted in the end, it's hard to see how things went bad and her and John's relationship would not be stronger after that. In addition to the events in the sequel seeming to contrast the central theme of the first movie and make it pointless since John and Lori fell apart anyway, it almost seems like she was never meant to be sympathetic in the first place, but that's clearly not true. One can't help but wonder where she went after that too, even if John's not paying her alimony. She can't clearly be gone from their lives forever.
