** (Human) Protagonist Will has been dosing his father with his experimental brain-boosting drug, ALZ-112, developing the drug on his own after his company had scrapped development because of a bungled presentation. After seven years of not only full reversal of his father's Alzheimer's, but improved brain function, Dad starts to develop resistance to the virus that delivers the drug into his system and deteriorates rapidly as his Alzheimer's returns with a vengance. Nevertheless, Will goes back to his boss and tells him the drug works, but only temporarily.\\

'''Instead:''' Having failed to reach the phone with some stupid box, Lawrence ''does'' takes off his shirt...and then ties it around his chained leg and proceeds to saw it off. *FacePalm* Yes, he was screwed up and in panic. It was still idiotic and furthermore, the other guy wasn't in panic but still he didn't suggest the obvious solution.

'''Later''': The killers, [[spoiler: Billy and Stu]] have captured Sydney and plan to kill her by framing her father [[RedHerring who has not appeared since the beginning of the film]] and then killing him in "self-defense". To make the plan more convincing, they plan to cut themselves to make it seem like they "barely got out alive".\\

--->'''Cracked Magazine:''' It's like humans landing on a planet where 70 percent of the surface is covered in molten lava, and the inhabitants are basically just moving sacks of lava. Even the atmosphere is so dense with lava vapor that often lava just rains from the sky with little to no warning. So what's your plan of attack? If you say anything other than "Jump out of the spaceship completely naked, your junk proudly flopping about, and engage the lava monsters in hand-to-hand combat," then congratulations -- you are smarter than the aliens in Signs.

** Evil Knievel's protege-turned-rival Jessie has overheard a plot to kill Evil via sabotaging his his latest stunt, then using the transport of his body to cover for the transport of millions of dollars in cocaine over the Mexico/US border. Jessie clumsily tries to tell Evil this, then knocks Evil out when he tries to blow Jessie off.\\

'''Instead:''' Jessie takes Evil's place on the big jump and dies instead. A StupidSacrifice that turns into a SenselessSacrifice, when the bad guys merely claim Jessie's body is Evil's and proceed as planned. Made even worse by an earlier scene, when...
** Evil sneaks into a Mexican sanitarium to talk to his mentor/mechanic, Will. Will tells Evil that he'd found pictures of their custom tractor-trailer in the possession of the BigBad, leading to Will's being set up as being a junkie and institutionalized (getting him out of the way so that the bad guys' sabotage of Evil's bike would go undetected.)\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Evil to postpone the jump - at least until he could get Will out of the sanitarium.\\

'''You'd Expect''' That A) the outmost importance of keeping quiet would be hammmered into the survivors everywhere and all the time, and it would be strictly enforced, and B) that the military would immediately weaponize this trait, creating lures to drive the zombies away from survivors and into traps.\\
'''Instead''' The second part is merely neglected, but the people of Jerusalem actually go out of their way to violate the first one. While in a city, protected from the undead hordes by a wall, they decide to celebrate their good fortune by singing. All together. ''Through a microphone''. Naturally, zombies cannot pass such a heartfelt invitation and start piling a zombie-pile outside untill they scale the wall.\\
'''You'd then Expect''' That since that wall is essential to the city's survival, the military would monitor it. After all, the zombies are not exactly subtle or stealthy.\\

'''You'd Expect:''' That anytime over the last twenty-plus years, Xavier would have at least mentioned this information to Jean for her own safety. Not even when she's brought back to the school from Alkali Lake does he bother to come down and see her (when she's feeling conflicted about her identity) and try to restore the mindblocks. Instead, he's ''teaching a class''.\\
