"Working Girl: After Tess proves that Katherine stole her idea, Katherine is fired and Tess gets an "entry level" executive job that is functionally equivalent to the one Katherine held."

Partially justified, in that Tess spent a chunk of the film doing Katherine's job while she was out with a busted leg. (Under Katherine's orders, although I don't remember if the orders included making Tess pretend to be Katherine.)

"The Last Starfighter. During the movie the entire Starfighter corps was wiped out, leaving only Alex Rogan to fight the Ko-Dan Armada. He succeeds in destroying it, and at the end of the movie, the leader of the Star League asks him to rebuild the Starfighter corps. There's just one problem: although Alex is the best Starfighter alive (mainly because he's the only Starfighter alive), he has no particular organizational/military skills or experience, which would be required to perform such a task. (And in this context, "Starfighter" is really another word for "Gunner".)"

More practical would be to use Alex as a recruiting figurehead, and bring in personnel who could do the actual gruntwork of organizing things and handling military protocol and whatnot.

"Protocol" Now that was just silly.
