Let's go see the newest action film. The Aesop is that you don't always need to solve problems with a gun...

Hold the phone! Did The Hero just use a gun to bust the locked door?

And then they just escaped the bad guys mooks without using a gun.

Now he's shooting the control panel for the Big Bad's Doomsday Device! What's going on?

Unlike a Lost Aesop, where a lesson is supposed to be learned, but is somehow left behind along the way, a Confused Aesop loses the aesop, finds it, then looses it again, etc. The audience is left wondering whether they're supposed to learn the lesson or ignore it.
