It's fair to say that even the very greatest and smartest movie franchises have their share of plot holes, because when intricate, labyrinthine series consisting of possibly dozens of movies are concerned, it's practically impossible to keep all the plates spinning together in a fully consistent way.
Something's gotta give somewhere, especially with so many writers, directors and producers being involved, and so there are always going to be those things that don't quite add up.
And while this often results in easily-ignored nitpicks, sometimes these issues will be egregious enough that it's plainly clear the filmmakers just didn't give much of a damn about flouting basic narrative and character logic.
Granted, there are certainly cases where this is the right thing to do: sometimes a story or scene is intriguing enough that it's worth the trade-off of exposing a glaring plot hole, but that doesn't mean fans are just going to quietly accept it.
These 10 hugely successful movie franchises, then, gamely threw logic aside and hoped audiences wouldn't care enough to make a big deal out of it. Oh, how wrong they were...
