    People Are Sharing The Movie Moments That Don't Make Sense To Them Now That They're Older, And I Hate It Here

    I refuse to see any flaws in What A Girl Wants.

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us a moment from a movie they loved when they were younger that doesn't make any sense to them now. Here are the fascinating responses.

    1. "In Home Alone, Kevin's mom calls the police and tells them her young son is at home alone, but when the police go to the house and Kevin doesn’t answer their knocks, they LEAVE."

    The police officer knocks on the front door, looks in a window, and says into his walkie-talkie, "There's no one home, the house looks secure, tell her to count her kids again"

    2. "How does Pocahontas's hair stay so perfect in a wind sprial?!"

    8. "In Jurassic Park, why doesn’t Tim just hand the gun to Dr. Sattler or Dr. Grant in the control room when the dinosaur is trying to push through the door?"

    9. "The parents in The Parent Trap! Who would agree to never seeing their child again? It doesn't make any sense!"

    12. "The 'Bend and Snap' scene in Legally Blonde ruins an otherwise flawless film. It doesn’t translate into real life and, other than being a device to break the UPS guy's nose, it serves NO purpose."

    Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM)

    13. In Kim Possible: A Sitch In Time, Ron is looking at a picture from kindergarten when it changes, because Drakken and co. have gone to the past. That means the change has now happened in Ron's timeline, so how does he remember what used to be?
