** Almost everyone holds the IdiotBall so often that it's difficult to believe that they survived the first few minutes of the film. But the best example has to be when the survivors decide to take [[TheFundamentalist Mrs. Carmody's]] advice and use HumanSacrifice as a way to appease God and the creatures in the mist. As anyone who understands basic animal behavior will tell you, that kind of stuff will only draw ''more'' monsters to the immediate area around the store. Predators swarm at the smell of blood or the chance for an easy meal, so sacrificing people was actually the stupidest thing they could've done. On top of that the mist creatures seem to hunt by sense of smell or hearing because of low visibility, so attracting them to the store with an easy, injured meal would've also alerted them to the people hiding inside of it.

* ''Film/TwentyEightWeeksLater'' The US Army allows unsupervised access to an asymptomatic infected, who consequently infects someone. Then they evacuate another one to Europe where the whole thing starts all over again, except this time it's not an isolated set of islands.

* ''Film/{{Zoolander}}'': Derek Zoolander lost his friends in a tragic gasoline-fight accident. The only reason he survived is that he spotted his image on the front of a newspaper and went over to look at it.

** It seems no one from any of the films understands the value of firearms. John Hommand doesn't keep a well armed security force on his island in case any of the dinosaurs escape. In the second and third films, the main characters mount "rescue missions" on islands full of dangerous predators without bringing any guns or anyone trained to use them.

* ''Film/MinorityReport'': ** Detective Witwer is able to discover a criminal conspiracy has been carried out by someone with inside knowledge of Pre-Crime, yet he somehow fails to consider the possibility that this person could be the guy with the most inside knowledge of anyone involved in the project, Lamar Burgess. Thus he explains his discovery to Burgess while both of them are isolated far from the police station and while the precog units are not functioning, thus handing Burgess the perfect opportunity to get away with murdering him. Burgess could not have come up with a better way to get murder a cop and get away with it then the one Witwer handed him on a silver platter.

* In ''Film/FourBrothers'', [[spoiler: Lt. Green appears to be the only competent cop in the Detroit police department. This illusion is shattered near the end of the movie, when Green finds proof that Fowler is corrupt. He doesn't turn the evidence of Fowler's corruption over to his superiors on the force, nor does he tell any of his fellow cops, nor does he tell anyone else. Instead he goes to confront Fowler alone just to beat him up and then walk away, giving Fowler the perfect opportunity to murder him. Fowler then has no trouble covering up the murder since Green never told anyone he was dirty.]]

** [[BigBad Rene Belloq]] in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''. One would think that before "testing" something like the Ark of the Covenant, he would have actually done some ''research'' on it, and ''Literature/TheBible'' clearly says (Samuel 6:19, King James version), ''And he smote the men of Bethshemesh, because they had looked into the ark of the LORD, even he smote of the people fifty thousand and threescore and ten men: and the people lamented, because the LORD had smitten many of the people with a great slaughter.'' Indy apparently knew about this passage, and tells Marion to close her eyes and not open them under any condition, but Belloq foolishly looks in it, and well, what happens to him and the Nazis is ''not'' pretty.

* Every victim in ''Film/{{Candyman}}''. Seriously, anyone who ''intentionally'' summons the malevolent spirit of a hook-handed SerialKiller who was killed by a lynch mob deserves what they get.

* ''Film/{{Prometheus}}'': Ignoring scientific procedure was quite common among these supposed scientists, like 1) Removing you helmets in an alien environment. Even if the air is breathable, you don't know if there's any pathogens in it. 2) Finding an alien's head and trying to re-animate it with electricity, causing it to blow up. 3) Not having any sort of decent quarantine procedures outside on one scene. 4) Millburn tries to pet an alien-snake after it shows hostility.
