Top 10 Plotlines Movies Just Totally Dropped For No Reason

5. The Addams Family Forgets an Orphan

Source: Paramount Pictures

"The Addams Family" is a great movie, and not just because it features the first performance of Christopher Lloyd where he was awake and cared about his role in about five years. It's actually a fairly tight movie, with one...small problem.

You might remember the evil lawyer, you know, the one who starts the plot. We meet his whole family: a loving wife and a kid that unfortunately looks just like him. By the end of the movie, Dad's been buried alive and Mom has run off with Cousin Itt. And he didn't stick with his mom: she comes back in the sequel, and he doesn't.

Then again, he probably got killed by something on the Addams' estate, but at least show us the cheap laugh, guys.

4. The Karate Kid Forgets His Friend

Source: Columbia Pictures

No, we're talking about the remake. Take a moment to mourn your childhood. You good? Okay, let's move on.

The entire point of the remake is that Will Smith's kid is overseas in China with no friends. But wait, here's some blond kid! Maybe he'll be your friend! And he is!

Then he gets deported or something, because he's never seen in the film. Geez, this kid really can't have even one friend in China? Do you also want his dog to get run over?

3. Tron: Legacy Tucks a Lightcycle in its Pants

Source: Walt Disney Pictures

"Tron: Legacy" is a movie that was fated to have lightcycles, because, let's face it, ask anybody who saw it and that's what they remember.

So, the lightcycle scene starts, ends with the hero having his friend wiped out, and then he swings up to the wreckage, gets out of his lightcycle, which handily folds up into a bar, and he puts it in his pocket.

He never uses it again, even though, and we want to emphasize this, he spends a lot of the movie running all around or trying to run away from people. Gee, do you think maybe that motorcycle in your pants that also serves as an offensive weapon might just happen to be handy, Mr. Hero Guy?

2. Inglourious Basterds is Missing Four Basterds

Source: The Weinstein Company

At the end of "Inglourious Basterds," the noble unit of Jewish soldiers led by a redneck are down to two guys. Two were killed in that tavern fight. Two were killed in the theater after Tarantino decided to completely rewrite history in a ridiculously awesome way.

One problem: there were 10 guys. 10. Four are missing. They don't even bother to tell us their fates in dialogue. Were they killed? Captured? Did they just get lost? At the end of the movie, were there four Jewish guys with guns in the middle of Germany, pulled over by the side of the road, looking at a map and arguing over the best way to get to France? Tarantino didn't even write their fates into the script. That's how egregious this is.

1. The Embryos from Jurassic Park

Source: Universal Pictures

This is the king crowner, the one that bugs us the most.

The first movie makes a big deal of these embryos. That guy from "Seinfeld" touches off the entire plot to steal them, as well as throw the movie to the heights of unreality. Sure, that little girl knows gymnastics and is also a hacker. Sure, a velociraptor could have a prayer of defeating Samuel L. Jackson. Right. Whatever.

Anyway, after that fat guy gets acid spit into his eyes and presumably eaten by a dinosaur, the embryos that he stole fall into the mud and get buried. Then, apparently, that's it. The huge corporation with all those resources that bribed him apparently just shrugged and forgot about it. Then we're assuming that they had a stock options scandal or something, because this huge corporation vanishes from the face of the franchise.

How annoying is this plothole? So annoying that apparently the Jurassic Park video game coming soon from Telltale will specifically go out of its way to answer that. So, about two decades after the fact, you fill in the plothole with some digital spackle?

Who wrote this script?
