15 Suuuuuper Obvious "They Ran Out Of Ideas" Movie Plots That Never Should Have Happened
Okay, but why would aliens who hate water invade a planet that's 75% water?
We asked the BuzzFeed Community which movie moments were so out of place it felt like the writers clearly stopped trying. Here's what they said:
In Wonder Woman 1984, when Steve Trevor randomly took over someone else's body even though he died in the first movie.
In Spider-Man 3, when Peter kissed Gwen Stacy even though he knew Mary Jane — whom he was about to propose to —was there watching.
In Signs, when we find out the aliens don't like water, but they also decided to invade a planet that was 75% water.
In The Kissing Booth 3, when Elle rejected Marco — who she was much better suited for — to stay in her failing relationship with Noah, and then they broke up anyway.
In Shrek, when Shrek spent the entire movie embracing his grossness and meanness, but then got upset when he *thought* he heard Donkey and Fiona talking badly about him behind his back.
In Pleasantville, when Reese Witherspoon's character decides to stay in this alternative '50s TV show world while her brother goes back to reality.
In Avengers: Age of Ultron, when Bruce Banner and Natasha Romanoff suddenly had a fling despite having zero chemistry and nothing in common.
In Booksmart, when Miss Fine went to the underage party, drank with kids, and hooked up with one of her students.
In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, when Katniss finally decided to settle down with Peeta and have a family.
In Sex and the City 2, when seemingly perfect Aidan cheated on his wife with Carrie.
In Legally Blonde, when Vivian settled her differences with Elle but was then immediately convinced that she'd slept with Professor Callahan to get ahead.
In Avengers: Endgame, when Steve went back in time so he could live his life with Peggy, knowing full well that she would have moved on, gotten married, and had kids.
Also in Avengers: Endgame, when Black Widow sacrificed herself for all of humankind, but her friends never mourned her death and they only had a funeral for Tony Stark.
In Pitch Perfect 3, when Jesse dumped Beca for some other girl, even though that totally went against his character arc, just so Beca could have a new love interest for the movie.
Finally, in Toy Story 4, when Woody left Bonnie and said goodbye to all of his friends at the end of the movie.
Obviously, we can't fit everything, so tell us your favorite (or least favorite) out-of-ideas movie moment below.
