Does anyone have an example of a movie that was made "boring" specifically by making sense and not having plot-holes?
The actual principle involved here is that no text can survive a hostile reading. There are extraordinarily few successful films that can't be picked apart on the basis of logic and common sense, not to mention plausibility - if a critic chooses to do that out of dislike for the film.

"Casablanca" is a mess. That said, most people who've seen it don't seem to care for some odd reason.
