It's possible to like a film and still be bothered by plot holes. People do it all the time. And it has nothing to do with smug superiority. There are sometimes that no matter how much you may actually like the film, there are portions of the plot that make no sense whatsoever (Brian De Palma fans are well acquainted with this particular phenomenon) and this clown is saying that you're an asshole if you acknowledge that?
