Dumb things . . .

We were talking in the Cold Creek Manor thread about how dumb it was for the family to let the guy who walked into their house uninvited stay for a meal, then hire him to work around the place, and it got me thinking of other dumb things people do in movies . . .

My question: What dumb things have you seen in a movie lately (or that you remember)? Things that make you say "Don't do that!" to the screen.

The latest one for me was in "Foul Play", a movie I watched some of yesterday. Goldie Hawn's character has been chased and harassed by some weird people, and when she comes home one day and goes to open her apartment door, it opens on it's own. It was ajar! Now, if you had already been chased and scared out of your wits, would YOU just walk on in and look around? I don't think *I* would, but that's what she did! I'd have dropped my groceries and run to the nearest pay phone and called the police, who already knew she'd been frightened by people.

So, tell me something silly a movie character did in something you saw or remember.

How about in Jeepers Creepers when the 2 teens are taking the back roads home from college, and they decide to turn around and go back to the farm they passed, to see if indeed the crazy scary guy who just chased them threw a body down the pipe on the farm. They thought maybe they "could help". KEEP GOING AND SEND THE POLICE BACK for pete's sake! :)

By the way this is one bad movie, but the first 30 min or so were suspenseful.

I agree..totally horrible movie. I guess I'm getting to old for the slasher flicks.

Yeah, that was pretty dumb. And I agree, this was not the best movie I've ever seen, but the first half hour was suspenseful.

Here's another one I've seen happen over and over. I can't think of a particular movie right now. But when a couple is having sex, usually with someone they "shouldn't" and leave the door unlocked! It's bad enough they are in a house instead of far away in a motel, but they should LOCK AND BOLT THE DOOR because inevitably, someone will burst in on them, usually the betrayed spouse! This happens millions of times in soap operas too!
