Stupidity: At the end of the movie when Laura discovers that all the cans are neat in her cabinet, she knows she has to leave the house. There's a back door to her house, but she runs up the hallway to the front of the house. She could've been out of the house in seconds going out of the back door, but of course that would've ruined the end of the movie.

The Gauntlet (1977)

Stupidity: Other than creating a scene for the movie, there was no reason for them to be driving so slow through the streets of Phoenix when they are going to City Hall. If they had gone at a faster speed, they would've made it through without getting hit so many times.

Collateral (2004)

Stupidity: When Max is in the federal building and shoots Vincent, he and Annie get into the elevator and go to the first floor. Knowing that Vincent would take the stairs down to the first floor, why didn't Max and Annie stop on the 12th floor, or any floor, get out, and call the police from there. It would have taken Vincent quite a while to figure out what floor they were on, and they could've kept moving from floor to floor and Vincent would've never found them.

Suggested correction: Considering they had a head start to the elevator, I would have done the exact same thing instead of risk staying in the building with an experienced hitman. Going floor-to-floor as you suggest while being hunted by a killer is a bad idea. Let's not forget Vincent also killed the phone lines. Maybe only the phone lines to her office? Who knows. But would you want to get out on the 8th floor to see if the phone will work on that floor, and then wait for the police? Plus in situations like these, you're not thinking like that. Your instinct is telling you to GET OUT. Getting outside in public is a much better idea than playing cat-and-mouse with Vincent in the building.

Double Jeopardy (1999)

Stupidity: When Libby finds out her husband is alive in San Francisco, she calls the insurance company to tell them. Why didn't she call her lawyer who could have looked into this and actually done something about it?
