Most ridiculous film plots of 2008

It’s been a good year for movies, if you don’t analyze the plots all that much.  I often wonder what movies would be like in real life, i.e. Tony Stark in Iron Man would just be killed once the terrorists realize a ransom won’t be paid.  But then that would make most movies like 30 minutes long.  I’m okay with that.  Coming back home, I watched The Dark Knight again and realized that even though it’s a gripping crime drama and held my attention for two-plus hours, the plot is absurd.  And that’s why those two movies make the list, along with Mama Mia!, Indiana Jones, Sex and the City, Hancock, and Wanted. I won’t include the final one on the list, since it makes for a good punchline.  [The Guardian]
