Jurassic World Is the Most Plot Hole and Error-Riddled Movie of 2015
Jurassic World may be the highest-grossing film of 2015 (until The Force Awakens) and the third highest-grossing film of all time (again, maybe until December), but popularity doesn't necessarily indicate accuracy or consistency, as the blockbuster sequel has topped the list of most movie mistakes of any film this year. 

Jurassic World Is the Most Plot Hole-Riddled Movie of 2015

According to Movie Mistakes, Jurassic World had the most factual errors, continuity errors, and major plot holes of any film this year, with 19 mistakes in total, followed by Terminator: Genisys with 10 and Mad Max: Fury Road with 8. The list for Jurassic World includes goofs like troopers holding a taser gun in one shot and a cattle prod in another, as well as the ridiculous plot point that two young boys could quickly repair a broken-down Jeep that's over twenty years old. But our favorite entry from Jurassic World is this "factual error":

Opening quote
It is a physical impossibility for a woman (or anyone else) to sprint cross-country and engage in all manner of strenuous, panic-driven activity while wearing 4-inch high heels. but after scrambling for her life from I-Rex, velociraptors and pterodactyls for a full 40 minutes of screen time, Claire is still wearing 4-inch high heels when she releases the T-Rex.
Closing quote


The "physical impossibility" comment may be hyperbolic, but we're annoyed enough with the sexism that we'll accept that.

Jurassic World's appeal wasn't based on internal consistency or plausibility, but rather the sheer joy of seeing dinosaurs romp around, so it's not too surprising that it's high on the list. It's more surprising that it ranked higher than Terminator: Genisys, which was pretty much just one giant plot hole. But the site tends to focus more on continuity errors than plot holes, and plus, when something is that inconsistent, it's sort of consistent in its inconsistency.
