World War Z

Stupidity: Throughout the movie, and especially up on the top of the apartment building before they get rescued at the beginning of the movie, Gerry counts 12 seconds to check if someone has been infected. Just to mention this apartment example, he gets blood on his face and spends more than 12 seconds getting up and to the edge of the roof, plenty of time to become "Zeke." He then counts 12 seconds, as if they would actually matter to his infection.

Trivia: Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor Who for 2014, is listed in the credits as W.H.O. Doctor. Just a fun coincidence, as the roles are too far apart to have been planned, but worth a look.
