    19 Movies That Would've Been 10 Minutes Long If The Characters Used Their Brains For, Like, One Minute

    All of these characters have one brain cell bouncing between them.

    There are few things more frustrating that watching a movie and thinking, "Why are you like this?!" about all of the main characters.

    Well, this week Redditor RedstonekPL asked, "What movie could have been over in 10 minutes if the main character wasn't such a fool?" and, whew buddy, I have to ask...WHY ARE THESE CHARACTERS LIKE THIS?!

    So — with that in mind — here are just a few of the movies that would've been a lot shorter if the main characters were just a little more quick-thinking:

    1. The Visit (2015)

    2. Jurassic Park (1993)

    3. The Ring (2002)

    4. Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002)

    5. Aladdin (1992)

    6. No Country for Old Men (2007)

    7. Fifty Shades of Gray (2015)

    8. Reservoir Dogs (1992)

    9. Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
