Critical Existence Failure: F Ilm
  • In The Blues Brothers, Jake and Elwood lead the cops on a city-wide chase, destroying hundreds of cars and pushing the Bluesmobile to the very limit. As soon as they arrive at their destination, every single panel on the car falls off at once.Puts their claiming to be on a Mission from God into a very different light, doesn't it?
    • Some fans would claim that the Bluesmobile was no longer needed after arriving at its final destination, and could finally rest in pieces.
  • Monsieur Creosote from Monty Pythons The Meaning Of Life: After a large feast, he explodes after eating a wafer thin mint.
  • In the movie Snow White & the Huntsman, the Queen's brother takes severe damage without showing any effect because the Queen shares her life force with him. After a serious attack, the brother is barely hanging on and begs the Queen for more. She is very near death herself, apologizes and severs the link, causing his death.
