I Just Found a Huge Plot Hole in “WarGames”

WarGames, the 1983 film about the Cold War and dangers of technology starring Matthew Broderick, Ally Sheedy, Mustache Coleman, and the guy who always plays someone grouchy, is on one of the HBOs this morning, and I realized something: If David’s mom serves David’s dad raw corn-on-the-cob for dinner, and he doesn’t notice until he bites into it, why did the butter melt when he spread it on the corn????

  1. Because it was still warm just barely cooked. In fact I just did it. I attempted to cook corn on the cob on my grill. It was way undercook but warm enough to melt butter.
