Most Insane Plot Holes from the Harry Potter Movies

The Top Ten

Harry Uses Magic Outside Of School

This is about the movies, and Harry used a torch in the books.

Um, that was just in the movie, I think. Didn’t he use a flashlight in the books? Correct me if I’m wrong, please.

Polyjuice Potion isn't suppose to change your voice

I did not know this. - ParasN2000

Snape's Magical Defense Of The Pihlosper's Stone Is Missing
The Death Eaters Just Walk Into Hogwarts
Movie Dumbledore Is Dumb

"Did you put your name in the goblet of fire, Harry? " Dumbledore asked calmly.
Calmly.
CALMLY.

The movie version is a different version so it's not a plot hole.

Richard Harris 11 year old Granddaughter threatened not to talk to him again if he didn't take the part.
He was going retire from acting.

I think it was shock. The Goblet of Fire. The Age Line.

The Aurors And Harry Fly Through London
Harry Does NOT Have His Mother's Eyes

Harry... you have y-your... FATHER'S EYES?! Okay I can't live anymore

LOL do you remember the Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone sticker book.
Harry had green eyes.
There must be a part in the first movie when he had green eyes but blink and you miss it or he wouldn't have green on the cover of the sticker book of the first.

Daniel was allergic to green contact lenses. Adult Lily had blue eyes in the films like Daniel.
11 year old Lily had brown eyes but that was just a mistake, but just go with Adult Lily.

Barty Crouch's Escape from Azkaban

Completely absent from the film, along with Winky and S.P.E.W, which werw also important

The movie provides practically no explanation for this.

In the book, it was Barty Crouch jr.'s mother who pleaded to her husband to let him out, and the house elf helped to come about.

But, in the movie, the liberation of elves from labour was edited out of the story, and along with them, was Winky (the Crouch's house elf). So, how Barty Crouch Jr. got out of Azkaban wasn't explained. - clusium

Harry Is Allowed To Nap At The Death Eater Attack
Expelliarmus Does One Thing! DISARMING!!!!!!!!!

The Contenders

Goyle Didn't Wear Glasses So Harry Shouldn't Have Worn Them on the Polyjuice.

Just put in a funny line. "Why are you wearing glasses." "Uh reading" "Oh I didn't know you could read." But in the books Goyle didn't need them.
We know they are not real glasses but stick to the story not the actors.

Harry Had Got in Trouble with a Patronus Charm in Front of a Muggle (Dudley), but the Muggle (Dursley's) Family Saw a Talking Envelope.

The talking envelope telling Harry in front of the Dursley's who are Muggles.

She only believed they infested Mistletoe in the books. "Mistletoe," said Luna dreamily, pointing at a large clump of white berries placed over Harry's head. He jumped out from under it. "Good thinking," said Luna very seriously. "It's often infested with Nargles."

Rictusempra Was Used as a Stunning Spell (Movie) Instead of Laughing Spell (Book).
