The scene in the new Indiana Jones film in which Indy survives a nuclear blast by crawling into a lead-lined fridge is so ridiculous it's spawned a new phrase for describing when a series of movies has stretched our disbelief past the breaking point. For example, the Star Wars series nuked the fridge with the introduction of Jar Jar Binks.
