**
Eric has just found a mysterious bundle in the cabin's basement. Said basement had dozens of mummified, mutilated cats hanging from the ceiling and the bundle was wrapped in a garbage bag that had been tied up in barbed wire.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Eric would leave the clearly ominous thing alone.alone or even just leave it for some other time since he's supposed to be there as part of a group effort to help Mia.\\


Added DiffLines:

** The entire reason they've come to the cabin is to be there to help Mia get through her addiction and they've suggested that they should even stop her if she tries to leave.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For them to agree that someone should at least always be around to keep an eye on her since she's going to be in horrible shape and probably not rational.\\
'''Instead:''' No one notices that Mia is huddled and walking in circles in the pouring rain.
** From the start of the movie, the people who stopped the last Deadite attack had the book, clearly knew exactly what it did and given that they took the time to tie a girl to a stake, set it on fire and bundle the book in barbed wire, they clearly weren't in a hurry.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' If for some reason they had to leave the book in the cabin, unguarded, then they would put it in something that no one could get open with an hour's work like a safe. You'd also expect it to be put somewhere very hard to see.\\
'''Instead''': They left the book covered by just the wire and bag, and in clear view on the desk.

* ''Film/MidnightInParis''
** Owen Wilson's character wants to give the woman he's in love with a pair of earrings.\\
'''You'd Expect''': He has money, and he's in Paris. There are literally hundreds of jewelry stores he could go to.\\
'''Instead''': He tries to steal a pair of his fiancee's earrings, almost gets caught doing it by her and her parents, and some completely innocent hotel maid nearly gets arrested.

* ''Friday the 13th: Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday'': In a surprisingly GenreSavvy move for horror movie authorities, the FBI has managed to kill Jason by luring him out into the open with a sexy agent, then blow him up with an airstrike.\\

** In ''Film/SawV'', The players who have been selected turn out to be highly GenreSavvy when they figure out (early in the film) that closing the door in a room activates the next trap. This, in addition to brainstorming creative solutions to the traps, does a lot to get the audience on their side. Near the end of the film, Brit and Malick (the two remaining survivors) kill a woman named Luba and use her body to provide an electric current to open the door to the final trap. They enter the room and learn that they (and, presumably, all the other survivors who lived) have to stick their hands into a sawblade in order to draw enough blood to fill a beaker and open the final door to escape.\\

'''Instead:''' M.J. does everything that Harry asks of her, contributing further to Peter's moral and emotional downfall, and later prompting him to [[spoiler:try and murder]] his former best friend. This is even brought up in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's ''Top 11 Dumbest Spider-Man Moments'' and WebVideo/CinemaSins' ''Everything Wrong With Spider-Man 3''.

'''Instead:''' He carries his son over there to [[SkewedPriorities pick up their luggage]], Jack and Rose yelling at him not to. When he sees the door, he stands there like a DeerInTheHeadlights and it opens, [[DownerEnding sweeping them both away]].

** In the unpopular sequel, Film/Jaws3D, MArtin's son Michael is now working at SEa World, and he and his girlfriend Kathy have discovered a an overgrown baby great white shark that swam in through the dysfunctional gate connecting to the park to ocean and has supposedly killed a technician who was trying to fix it the previous night. Katherine suggests they capture the shark and put it on display as "the first great white alive in captivity", guaranteeing a boatload (pun intended) of cash and notirety for the park. They succeed in doing so, but first must nurse it back to health, which will take a decent time.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' Calvin, the manager of the park, to be patient and wait for the shark to recover remembering that good things come to those who wait.\\
'''Instead:''' He loses patience with waiting after a ''single day'', and orders the baby shark moved to an exhibit without Katherine's approval to do so. The tank the baby shark is placed into is apparently incapable of supporting Great White sharks, and the baby dies almost immediately along with the good fortune that he would have brought to the park if Calvin had been a little more patient or talked to Katherine first. Making matter worse, the baby's 35 foot mother isn't too happy with what has happened to her baby...



'''You'd Expect:''' Alan to just calmly tell his parents that he's just not interested in going. Even if they intiially refuse to relent, going about it politely would more likely guarantee them to possibly reconsider.\\
'''Instead:''' Alan is completely rude and snappy about it, even stating that he's not interested in being a success like his father...or even a Parrish. This ends up with his father telling him he's going on Sunday whether he likes it or not, and that's the end of it and Alan telling him that he's never speaking to him again and plans to runaway. But that supernatural board game he found in a construction site and brought home has ''other'' plans for him.
