* ''Film/{{Dragonheart}}'': The king was an evil tyrant and a dragonslayer who met his end while slaughtering peasants and burning their village. His son, Einon, was mortally wounded in the process of trying to steal his father's crown from his corpse. His mother, Queen Aislinn, and mentor, Sir Bowen, take the dying prince to see the dragon that would later be given the nickname "Draco". Draco observes right away that Einon is a manipulative brat and every bit as evil as his father, and voices his reservations about granting their request to heal him. Aislinn and Bowen swear on Einon's behalf that he wouldn't be like his father.\\
'''You'd Think:''' That Draco would refuse to help Einon, depose Aislinn as queen, and install someone of sounder mind and moral character to take over rule. Einon's word isn't worth its weight in his own spit, and Draco can see that StockholmSyndrome has Bowen and Aislinn wrapped tight around Einon's finger, whether they realize it or not.\\
'''Instead:''' Draco makes Einon swear the oath with his dying breath, takes him at his word, and shares his heart with him, restoring the prince to life and granting him a portion of the dragon's power.\\
'''Result:''' Einon uses his newfound power to become a more CompleteMonster than his father had been through extortion, torture, murder, and even rape.
** A despondant Bowen concludes that this was the dragon's doing, and returns to the lair to confront him.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Draco to meet Bowen at the cave entrance, disarm him, and then pin him down until he listens to reason. He does just that in a later scene, proving that he is capable of it.\\
'''Instead:''' Draco vacates. An enraged Bowen develops a grudge against Draco, abandons the Old Code, and [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge takes out his revenge by hunting dragons into near-extinction]], leaving Draco as the LastOfHisKind and screwed out of his afterlife when the movie catches up with him.

** In "A Very Brady Sequel," a con artist, Trevor Thomas, is able to easily maneuver his way into the Brady household, claiming he is Carol's "long-lost first husband," Roy Martin. Even though there are obvious red flags, the Bradys are such idiots that neither Mike, nor Marcia, Jan or Cindy, nor Carol ask him tough questions to expose "Roy" as a fraud. For instance, even Mike would be able to recognize the physical features of Carol's first husband, and Carol would remember what happened to her first husband and why he's had no contact with her or her daughters, or in the very least subtle personality/physical quirks that Thomas would not have picked up on. Only arguably the dumbest person in the original TV series Alice senses that "Roy" is not who he says he is. (Of course, much of the humor of this film comes from exactly that a con man who otherwise would be stopped dead in his tracks taking advantage of a family so stupid to recognize their own stupidity.)

* Film/ThePrincessDiaries:
** Mia had been invited by JerkJock Josh to go to his beach party, where the AlphaBitch Lana and her posse also will be at. This clashes with the plans of Mia being a guest of Lilly's TV show.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Mia to have been suspicious of the fact that Josh was acting nice to her all of a sudden, and politely reject his request.\\
'''Or:''' For Mia to remember that she already made plans to attend Lilly's show and stick to her word.\\
'''Instead:''' She foolishly attends the party with Josh, and the paparazzi are able to find Mia.
** Later at the party, Mia is running away from the paparazzi. She wants to change her clothes quickly. She comes across a tent, where Lana nand her posse are standing next to. Mia tries to ask Lana and her friends to watch out for the paparazzi while she changes her clothes.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' For Mia to realize that trusting someone like Lana to look out for her would be a foolish thing to do (considering how Lana takes pride and pleasure out of humiliating Mia) and find somewhere else to change her clothes.\\
'''Or:''' For Mia to just simply not change her clothing ,leave the beach, and focus on getting ''far'' away from the paparazzi (her clothes weren't too inappropriate for the public).\\
'''Instead:''' Mia foolishly trusts Lana to look out for her. As expected, Lana and her friends (being the assholes they are) lift up the tent, allowing the paparazzi to see Mia, and the paparazzi takes a lot of photos of her in a towel. As a result, Mia is humiliated. Later in the movie, her grandmother gets angry at her for (unintentionally) embarrassing the family. Lilly and Michael end up angry as well.

* In ''Film/MikeBassettEnglandManager'', the title character's habit writing his squad list on the back of a box of Benson and Hedges cigarettes ends up resulting in his secretary unwittingly adding two lower-league footballers, the 47-year-old Ron Benson and the grossly overweight Tony Hedges to the squad list circulated to the press (for argument's sake, we'll say that said secretary made this mistake because she was so rushed off her feet dealing with Bassett's general incompetence).\\
'''You'd Expect''': That in the ensuing press conference, Bassett would blame this on a prankster and clarify that Benson and Hedges aren't actually part of the squad.\\
'''Instead''': He claims that IMeantToDoThat, and that age, weight and the division one plays in shouldn't be an obstacle to being selected for England. The assembled press don't buy this for a minute, and mockingly suggest that Bassett might want to pick Lambert and Butler, or Peter Stuyvesant for the next match. And ''then'' Bassett actually names Benson and Hedges as substitutes for the match, wasting two of the five substitute slots that teams had for World Cup qualifying games back in those days.

'''You'd Expect:''' For Sarah to get into her car as soon as possible and drive somewhere safer.\\
'''Instead:''' She pauses to look at all the chaos going on around her, giving her zombified husband a head start to chase after her. She even repeats this mistake after stopping at a traffic collision on the road when a bus driver tried to steal her car.\\

** Eventually, Evan gets another shot at an incident where Tommy burnt Evan's puppy alive in a bag, and their friend Lenny's knife wasn't sharp enough to cut the bag. In the original timeline, this incident and Tommy's threats during it haunted Lenny immensely. This time, Evan gives Lenny a much sharper knife.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Evan would tell Lenny to simply and only cut the bag open, then stop.\\
'''Instead''': Evan goes on and on about random philosophical bull that [[PoorCommunicationKills Lenny easily misinterprets to mean kill Tommy]].\\
'''Making This Worse''': Evan is able to appeal to Tommy's better nature this time and convinces him to free the puppy. Not only does this mean the knife was pointless- shortly after, Lenny kills Tommy with the knife, leading to the worst possible timeline.
