What's The Worst Decision Anyone Has Ever Made In A Movie?

Shaking. My. Head.

I tried watching The Witches for the first time the other day, and something really, really bothered me...

I truly could not get over that random woman who decided to take a nap on the side of a cliff, leaving her unattended baby in the stroller...which was pointed DIRECTLY AT THE EDGE.

So that got me thinking: What are some of the stupidest, dumbest decisions you've ever seen someone make in a movie?

We're talkin' any character and any movie here, folks. The more random, the better.

The obvious might be something from a horror movie, like when the kids in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre decided to pick up a random, bloody hitchhiker who pulled out a knife.

Maybe you're still annoyed by something more specific, like when Peter Quill decided to be an absolute idiot in Avengers: Infinity War and ruined everyone's chances of retrieving the Infinity Stones from Thanos.

He couldn't ignore his feelings for five more seconds?!

Or perhaps it's something else, like in Home Alone 2 when Kevin decided to stop in the middle of the airport so he could change the batteries on his tape recorder, and then he got separated from his family.

Whatever it is, we want to hear it! Use the comments below to tell us the absolute dumbest thing a movie character has ever done.

I will never get over that scene in Zodiac when Jake Gyllenhaal's character was searching for information about the Zodiac Killer, and he knew that the killer had a basement, which was especially RARE in California. Then the guy he's talking to INVITES HIM INTO HIS BASEMENT. Jake, you're in danger, boy.
