* Done in TheFilmOfTheBook of ''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings The Return of the King]]'' with Éowyn's ''horse'' when she tells Merry to take the reins during the Mûmak battle. Which is interesting since ''prior scenes'' showed riders shooting bows and arrows while riding-- while Merry would know nothing of handling a war-horse in battle, and be even less able to execute it.
* Happens with an extra twist in ''See No Evil, Hear No Evil'' - one main character is blind and the other is deaf, and the blind guy ends up having to take the wheel and navigate according to commands shouted by the deaf guy.

* Shows up word-for-word at the end of ''BuckarooBanzai'', when Banzai gives [[HumanoidAlien John Parker]] (who failed flight school) control of the Red Lectroid thermopod so that he can manually aim the gun instead.

* Tested on ''Series/MythBusters''. Simple cooperative driving (driver handling the pedals, passenger steering) went well, but adding in the common movie element of driver shooting someone while the passenger drives landed this in the Busted column -- both the shooting and the driving were much worse than in the control.
** On the other hand, a "take the wheel" where driver and passenger swap places while the car's moving was ruled Plausible, as neither Jamie nor Adam had any problems with the switch. [[note]]Granted, the two of them are very close in height, so the driver's seat was already at the right position.[[/note]]
