* ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunksTheSqueakuel''. Apparently there Ain't No Rule against a football quarterback throwing the ball with a teammate also holding onto it, which is the only way Alvin's game-winning touchdown is allowed. Granted, such a rule is likely not needed given one would have to have the strength of Hercules to throw the ball and another player together ''unless'' said other player was, well, as small as a chipmunk.

* ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace''''TheMovie'': Jerry and Theresa forbid Alex and Harper from going to an R-rated party because they are underage, and to make their word perfectly clear they give them a rule not to leave the building in any way. Alex then turns the restaurant's subcar design into a literal subway so the girls can travel to the party without technically leaving the building. U fortunately, it ends up a disaster when Alex has trouble controlling the subway and they almost get killed until Justin saves them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Exam}}'', the candidates are told that they will be disqualified if they talk to the invigilators and/or deface their own question paper. One of the candidates works out that there is nothing stopping them talking to each other or from defacing a question paper belonging to a different candidate. This leads to scenes of the candidates talking to each other about how to pass the exam and defacing the other candidates' question papers by shading the papers and wetting them.

* In ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'' and the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' film, the Kobayashi Maru test. Starfleet actually had to add a "no reprogramming the simulator" rule after Kirk's shot at it, and according to the ExpandedUniverse, this kicked off a whole tradition of loopholing the scenario. Not only that, but it became an expectation of any student to find a way to beat the simulation with outside-the-box thinking.

* A meta example from ''Film/FightClub''. The character [[HelenaBonhamCarter Marla Synger's]] line to [[BradPitt Tyler Durden]] after having sex for the first time was supposed to be: [[DeadBabyComedy "I wanna' have your abortion."]] But [[ExecutiveMeddling an executive at Fox Studios thought that was too crude and ordered the director to change it.]] He agreed on the condition that the correction could not be corrected. Thus, Marla Synger ended up saying: [[CrossesTheLineTwice "I haven't been fucked like that since grade school."]]
