** ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' ("The beauty of my plan is... its simplicity"). The meat of the movie comes from the fact that several groups of people have simple plans, and they all run afoul of each other.

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/GeneratorRex''. Noah makes a very detailed plan to have the perfect prom night with a girl that's out of his league. He takes into account her friend's hilariously bad luck and invites Rex, knowing that he could survive any accident she may cause by her clumsiness. What he ''doesn't'' take into account is that Rex is being harassed by a giant monster bunny that wants him dead. This ends with all of them inside a tank trying to get rid of said bunny while on their way to prom.

* This is what ''Series/{{Frasier}}'' generally does when it's not doing ''Series/ThreesCompany''. Lampshaded at one point when Martin scoffs at yet ''another'' Simple Plan that Niles and Frasier have devised (sharing an office as psychiatrists):

* From ''VideoGame/Borderlands2'' you have the mission ''Wildlife Preservation''. The plan is simple enough: Find Mordecai. Get upgrade to Claptrap. However things ''really'' don't go well in the end [[spoiler:thanks to Jack kidnapping and then killing Mordecai's beloved bird Bloodwing in incredibly cruel fashion]].

* In ''VideoGame/ShadowWarrior2013'', Lo Wang's task is simple -- buy an old sword called the Nobitsura Kage from a {{Yakuza}}-connected collector named Mizayaki for two million dollars. Things waste no time in going right straight to hell.

* A villainous example appears in the ''{{Jem}}'' episode, "Broadway Magic" in which using a forged letter from "Rio", the Misfits are able to lock Jem in the crown of the Statue of Liberty. However, the Misfits are unaware that Jem's earrings are part of a illusion-creating computer. The show plays this trope straight in many episodes.

* In ''WebComic/StandStillStaySilent'', Reynir got himself hired as an unpaid kitchen helper on a merchant ship in hope to be able to get off at the ship's destination, which he turned out to not be allowed to do for safety reasons. He then noticed that the ship was delivering food supplies, assumed that they were going where he wanted to go and hid in one of the crates. These crates were for a military crew exploring the ForbiddenZone and the safety reasons mentioned earlier mean that he's stuck with them until their own safe ride comes to pick them up. In a few weeks.
