17 Things Men Do In Movies That Make Zero Sense

Certain movie tropes persist, despite their not adding anything to character or plot, and despite their not making a whole lot of sense. For example: the last-minute magic bulletproof vest, wherein a bullet-ridden protagonist reveals he had the foresight to wear a vest and jumps back up to wreak havoc on his would-be murderers. Or the cliffhanger, where the hero pulls up another character (almost always a woman) who is about to plummet to her death from a cliff (always a literal cliff! Though sometimes the top of a skyscraper). It doesn’t matter how much this character weighs—the hero has incredible arm strength.

Flashlights always run out of batteries in horror movies, a protagonist is shown to be badass by walking away from an explosion wearing sunglasses and not looking back, and during a chase scene, a baby in a stroller survives by a hair. 

We have questions. Mainly, WHY DOES NOBODY SAY GOODBYE BEFORE HANGING UP THE PHONE?
