More films are made about cars than any other mode of transport.

0:00:260:00:30

I used to love cars so much that I'd ever only watch

0:00:300:00:32

the final third of Planes, Trains And Automobiles.

0:00:320:00:35

But these days, I'm much more environmentally minded

0:00:350:00:38

and I think Hollywood should follow suit.

0:00:380:00:40

In The Italian Job, instead of Mini Coopers,

0:00:400:00:42

they should have foldaway bikes.

0:00:420:00:44

And I want to see The Fast And The Furious on Segways.

0:00:440:00:47

That said, would Ryan Gosling have looked as cool if,

0:00:470:00:50

instead of Drive, the film had been called Walk?

0:00:500:00:53

Insightful teen fun in Easy A, and Todd is driving Olive home.

0:00:570:01:02

But when we catch a glimpse of the speedometer,

0:01:020:01:05

we see that they're travelling at 0mph.

0:01:050:01:09

Something must be wrong with your car, mate.

0:01:090:01:11

Easy A? Better call the Easy AA, hmm?! Huh?!

0:01:110:01:15

In the straightforward Just Go With It, Jennifer Aniston

0:01:170:01:21

perfectly parks, silencing any chauvinists.

0:01:210:01:24

D'oh. Wait a minute.

0:01:240:01:26

What is that?

0:01:260:01:27

Turns out she's gone all over the lines. Birds, eh?

0:01:270:01:30

What?

0:01:300:01:32

The slow but thoughtful Rabbit Hole now,

0:01:340:01:36

and Nicole's not wearing a seat belt.

0:01:360:01:39

-I don't want to move.

-I don't want another baby.

0:01:390:01:41

CAR HORN BLARES

0:01:410:01:44

Luckily, a seat belt appeared just in the nick of time.

0:01:440:01:48

A clunk-click clunker.

0:01:480:01:50

-What're you doing?

-I just had to check the cake.

0:01:500:01:53

Matthew McConaughey's such a successful lawyer

0:01:560:01:59

in the thrilling drama The Lincoln Lawyer,

0:01:590:02:01

that he's got a number plate that says NT GUILTY on it. Classy!

0:02:010:02:07

But in California, a licence plate can only have seven letters on it.

0:02:070:02:11

And NT GUILTY has eight.

0:02:110:02:13

Which makes it an illegal number plate, and very guilty indeed.

0:02:130:02:18

Oh, the irony!

0:02:180:02:19

He also has a chauffeur, which seems a bit poncey.

0:02:210:02:25

Surely he could drive himself?

0:02:250:02:28

Actually, the car can drive itself.

0:02:280:02:30

Yep, it was moving before he'd even started it.

0:02:330:02:36

Maybe his car is a distant cousin of Herbie.

0:02:400:02:43

When I heard that the downbeat drama Winter's Bone was a bit backward,

0:02:450:02:51

I thought that meant it was full of uneducated hillbilly types.

0:02:510:02:54

But no, it actually means it's backward,

0:02:540:02:57

as the reverse shot of this pick-up proves.

0:02:570:03:00

Warning - this vehicle is literally reversing.

0:03:000:03:03

Make sure your daddy knows the gravity of this deal.

0:03:030:03:06

In the unflinching crime movie The Town,

0:03:090:03:12

the bank robbers are forced to drive around the block

0:03:120:03:15

as they wait for their plan to fall into place.

0:03:150:03:17

But the second time they drive up the same road,

0:03:210:03:24

all of the parked cars are different.

0:03:240:03:27

How long did it take them to drive around the block?

0:03:270:03:29

Mind you, you know how bad traffic can get in Town.

0:03:290:03:32

And now another film's storyline flaws are reviewed and exposed

0:03:340:03:38

in Great Plot Hole Mistakes.

0:03:380:03:40

M Night Shyamalamadingdong's outlandish and far-fetched

0:03:400:03:44

2002 film Signs stars Mel Gibson

0:03:440:03:46

as a man who finds crop circles in his field which, it turns out,

0:03:460:03:51

is the work of ali-ons.

0:03:510:03:52

They've chosen to invade Earth for reasons that are mainly explained in crop circles,

0:03:520:03:56

which we can't understand.

0:03:560:03:58

Fortunately, the one substance able to destroy the ali-ons is water,

0:03:580:04:02

so they're fairly easily defeated. The End.

0:04:020:04:05

So what made the water-fearing ali-ons choose planet Earth, you might wonder?

0:04:050:04:09

-Just a minute, Lionel, did you say planet Earth?

-That's right.

0:04:090:04:13

But 71% of the earth's surface is water, which is lethal to us ali-ons.

0:04:130:04:18

Yes.

0:04:180:04:19

What about Mars? That's nice and dry.

0:04:190:04:22

There hasn't been water on Mars for ages.

0:04:220:04:25

Yes, but where's the challenge in that? Come on.

0:04:250:04:28

Are you an ali-on or a mouse?

0:04:280:04:31

OK, OK.

0:04:310:04:32

So, we go to one of the dry bits of Earth, like the Atacama desert?

0:04:320:04:35

No, we go to nice verdant farming country

0:04:350:04:38

and choose specifically the house of a family of water-filled humans

0:04:380:04:42

whose daughter has a strange obsession with water.

0:04:420:04:45

But we'll be wearing protective waterproof clothing, yes?

0:04:450:04:48

No, I thought we'd go naked.

0:04:480:04:50

Naked?! What if they spit at us?

0:04:500:04:52

I don't know about you, but when I'm crowing over puny humans,

0:04:520:04:56

I like to have my guys out, swinging in the breeze.

0:04:560:05:00

I'm worried this might be the worst idea you've ever had, Lionel.

0:05:000:05:03

No, that was instant mashed potato.

0:05:030:05:06

THEY LAUGH

0:05:060:05:09

Out of all last year's films,

0:05:110:05:13

we think this next film had the moist mistakes.

0:05:130:05:15

Did I say moist?

0:05:150:05:17

Out of all of last year's films,

0:05:170:05:18

we think this next mistake had the most mistakes...

0:05:180:05:22

Out of all of last year's films, we think this nest film...

0:05:220:05:26

Nest?

0:05:260:05:27

Out of all the films,

0:05:270:05:29

we think this next one had the most mistakes, of last year.

0:05:290:05:34

Out of all of last year's mistakes, this was the most.

0:05:340:05:37

Out of all of last year's films,

0:05:370:05:40

we think this next film had the most mistakes YES!

0:05:400:05:43

Sorry, without the yes.

0:05:430:05:44

And the film we found the most mistakes in this year

0:05:460:05:49

was the very underwhelming and disappointing

0:05:490:05:52

The Green Hornet remake.

0:05:520:05:53

Let's count them up!

0:05:530:05:55

Good morning.

0:05:550:05:56

Keep staring at the attractive lady lying in the bed,

0:05:560:05:59

as one minute she's all covered up,

0:05:590:06:02

then the duvet comes down and we see her bra!

0:06:020:06:05

Then it goes up...

0:06:050:06:07

and down

0:06:070:06:08

and up and down for the rest of the scene.

0:06:080:06:13

Of course, I watched this clip several times

0:06:130:06:15

just to be sure of the mistake.

0:06:150:06:17

Two mistakes for the price of one in this car chase.

0:06:200:06:24

The offside headlight gets knocked out by The Hornet's car...

0:06:240:06:28

Oh, no.

0:06:300:06:32

..but as the car flips over, it's all fixed again!

0:06:320:06:35

Then the car careers forwards,

0:06:370:06:40

but slams through the window backwards.

0:06:400:06:42

Proof indeed that two wrongs don't make a right...

0:06:420:06:46

They make a right clanger.

0:06:460:06:48

This is the greatest moment of my life.

0:06:480:06:50

She's completely un-nailable.

0:06:520:06:53

It's a terrible fact. I don't know what to do.

0:06:530:06:55

In this clip, Kato drives very straight

0:06:550:06:58

down a very straight road, but look how erratically he steers!

0:06:580:07:02

This film's proving to have more gaffs than a dodgy council estate...

0:07:020:07:06

And here's three more whoppers.

0:07:090:07:12

Watch this weapon as it disappears quicker than director

0:07:120:07:15

Michel Gondry's credibility.

0:07:150:07:17

Ta-da!

0:07:180:07:20

But now just watch Mr Beach Ball sat proudly on his chair.

0:07:260:07:30

Ooh, now he's off...

0:07:300:07:33

Maybe he's trying to escape from this movie, I wouldn't blame him.

0:07:330:07:37

I mean, he may have a better offer.

0:07:370:07:39

There's probably a volleyball tournament he could be starring in.

0:07:390:07:42

That would be nice.

0:07:420:07:45

Oh, no, he's back.

0:07:450:07:47

Mr Beach Ball, I'd have a word with your agent.

0:07:470:07:50

You're better than this.

0:07:500:07:52

Get off my property!

0:07:520:07:53

In this scene, look at the tree in the background.

0:07:570:08:00

What are you doing up here? All the guys are waiting.

0:08:000:08:03

Popeye walks far past it... and now he's right next to it.

0:08:030:08:08

Maybe Mr Tree's after more screen time?

0:08:080:08:10

We'll never know.

0:08:100:08:12

Last one.

0:08:140:08:15

The gas mask is clearly on Chudnofsky's forehead

0:08:150:08:19

as he fights Kato.

0:08:190:08:21

..or be it your blood, red will be the last colour...

0:08:210:08:23

Then, suddenly, it's entirely on his face...

0:08:290:08:32

I'd keep it on if I were you.

0:08:330:08:36

With nine solid goofs, this film's a bit of a stinker.
