    When Bruce Willis drove a car thru Central Park trying to get to "downtown". .....was just stupid.

    Central Park is in the middle of the city, and even if you COULD do that, (which you can't....as there's about a billion things in the way, including lakes, and castles, and a zoo, and a skating rink and a carousel, etc.....)

    it still only would get you as far as 58th Street.............no where NEAR "downtown".

    I could also mention the scene where he's driving thru a TUNNEL, and there's a helicopter hovering at the end, waiting for him to emerge to riddle him with bullets.

    So he guns the car, and then *jumps out* (yeah, okay, you'd be total road kill at that speed, and the car hits a traffic divider.......and then , somehow becomes AIRBOURNE, like a missle.....hitting the helicopter in mid air, and Killing the bad guys.

    Yeah, Okay..........first of all, cars are not airplanes and are not very aero-dynamic, okay?

    secondly, hitting a traffic divider......head on........does not send a perfectly intact car, leaping into air like a 747 taking off. It basically crushes your front end in.......and stops the car dead in it's tracks.

    It's not a ramp............and certainly not a ramp at an 80 degree angle..........that would send your car soaring thru the air, like it had wings and a jet engine.

    But then if we want to nit pick the entire film, we could be here all day,

    Winter's Bone - We're not all hicks. Although there are plenty of them.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri - We're not all hicks.

    The Netflix show "Ozark" - We're not all hicks. I feel like I'm repeating myself...

    Brad Pitt is from here. That's something right?

    You gots too much time on your hands. Movies, by their very nature, entail suspension of disbelief. So if you run around picking tiny holes in their storylines, it doesn't leave a lot of room to enjoy it.
