Much like Legally Blonde, Clueless and She's The Man, Senior Yearon Netflix is one of those brilliant high-school films that we really can't get enough of. But fans are all picking up on the same problem with the plot, and well, they've got a point.

*Spoilers* The film follows Stephanie, a high-school cheerleader (played by Angourie Rice) who falls into a coma before her prom, only to wake up 20 years later as an adult (played by Rebel Wilson), who wants to reclaim her teen status and win prom queen.

Many fans have praised the film for being exactly what their 2022 needed: a throwback to the teen films of the 2000s that we loved so much.

But others have spotted a bit of a plot hole that many needs fixing: Steph got injured during a cheerleading accident, that, er, actually wasn't an accident: her jealous team mates were responsible for her falling and going into the two decade-long coma.

As someone put it, "The worst part about Senior Year movie on Netflix is that no one got in trouble for attempted murder." Another added, "I was wondering if I was the only one who felt that this was crazy! I’m like, so she literally tried to harm this girl and it’s never mentioned again in the movie?"

Another put, "Dude right? They never talked about how the girls pushed the guys that were gonna catch Steph?"

Look, we get it. In the context of a fictional fun film, you probably don't need to go into the dark side of Senior Year. But still. Actions! Have! Consequences!s

Senior Year is available to stream on Netflix.
