With Jake Sully...  Well, the General had a point.  He fell for some alien girl, and suddenly he was happy to gun down hordes of his own people.  As some have pointed out, he had plenty of time with the Navi to find a different solution that didn't involve picking a side and gunning down lots of people.  Plus, I couldn't really take him seriously when he does his big speech about how 'they' can't take 'our' planet.

Also, there's the whole "not only is he a better man, he's a better Na'vi than the actual Na'vi", and that referring to a man who seems to be too lazy to use the language of the people he is speaking to. Does language proficiency play in that? To some extent, yes. But that fails when you realize he's had three months where he could have practiced it with the various people he was interacting with, and CHOSE to speak English with them instead.

Also, apparently the Na'vi need saving by white man, because they're unable to come up with "this is too big for us, we need to ask the other tribes for help" themselves.

The list goes on. And on. And on. I totally think the movie was pretty and everything, but the story was too issue-ridden for words.
