One of the big red flags when listening to criticism is when they could just as well apply to a book. Things like plot holes, they are very superficial observations about narrative and mostly concern people who don't really even care whether what they're looking at is a movie or book, they only care about pandering to their own little narratives. Commercialism. If a good movie has a(n actual) plot hole it's a shame, but only for reasons external to the movie itself. And mostly it's dependent on the viewer's bias, they just claim the plot holes start where their own prior knowledge of how the world is ends. If a person was so uncultured he didn't know anybody who has a father, and a movie featured an intact family, that person would call it a plot hole that's there just some guy hanging out at some mother's house. It's a shame that this movie can't reach somebody that dense, and a better movie would reach anybody by some cinematic magic, but it's not a flaw in the movie and what it set out to portray. It would be like complaining the finest pearl doesn't also make coffee.
