After Godzilla makes landfall on Honolulu, the landing forces decides it's a good idea to open fire on him with their puny assault rifles at a 350 foot monster, given the flares has shown just how huge he is.\\\

After Godzilla makes landfall on Honolulu, the landing forces decides it's a good idea to open fire on him with their puny assault rifles at a 350 foot monster, given the flares has shown just how huge he is. Granted they stop firing before they deplete their magazine, and the look they give makes it aptly clear that they realized this was a bad idea.\\\

** The scientists, too. They ''know'' that the monkey is infected with the Rage virus, and they presumably know that it will cause a ZombieApocalypse if let out. And yet their only effort to ''stop'' this from occurring is to just give a verbal warning to the people trying to release the monkey.

* [[DamselScrappy Parker]] in the 2010 ''Film/OpenWater'' knockoff ''Film/{{Frozen}}''. Granted, the guys weren't the brightest bulbs either (especially Dan, whose decision to bring the skiing-impaired, fair-haired maiden on ''a skiing vacation'' set the whole chain of events that led to them getting trapped on a ski-lift in motion - on his defense, though, it was at ''her'' insistence), but she takes it too far. She is also the sole survivor of the flick due to a gigantic AssPull.

* ''Film/DjangoUnchained'': Late in the movie, Candie discovers the true identities and intentions of Django and Schultz, but gives them a chance to walk away with Django's wife, essentially giving them everything they want. Rather then take advantage of this golden opportunity, Schultz completely blows it by shooting Candie, starting a shootout that gets himself killed and nearly gets Django killed as well. Even if Schultz really wanted to kill Candie, this still makes no sense. He could have simply walked away and then returned later to kill him at a more opportune time when he wasn't in the middle of Candie's mansion surrounded by armed guards.



* 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.]]

*** You'd think Admiral Motti would have known that dissing the faith of the big scary Sith Lord and personal hatchetman of the Emperor, Darth Vader, in his face is a ''very'', ''very'', '''''very''''' bad idea.

He's lucky that Moff Tarkin is there to relieve him from what would have been a guaranteed death inflicted by TheDragon.

* ''Film/{{ROTOR}}'': Sonya. After R.O.T.O.R. kills her fiancé, she flees with her car and R.O.T.O.R. follows her. She shakes him off and then stops on the open road and is looking for her purse (!) when she sees a police officer in the rareview mirror although she knows R.O.T.O.R. (looking like a police officer) is still following her. She only survives because R.O.T.O.R. somehow forgets to use his gun and lets her escape quickly.

* ''Film/{{ROTOR}}'': A trio of rednecks think that the titular [[CrushKillDestroy killer robot]] is merely a human police officer, so naturally they pick a fight with him.

** ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'': Darth Sidious (via hologram) congratulates the Separatists for their loyalty during the Clone Wars, which are about to end, and promises that his new apprentice, Darth Vader, will "[[DeadlyEuphemism take care of them]]" when he arrives at their hideout in Mustafar. After that transmission, you'd expect the Separatists would evacuate the hideout immediately since that would have translated to "killing them." But nope. They actually [[WhatAnIdiot take his words seriously]] and just wait in the hideout until Vader arrives. Once he arrives there, [[ForgoneConclusion guess what happens]].
