Don’t Do It

Idea taken from Blank Check Podcast’s A Simple Plan episode where David Sims references it as a don’t do it movie. Movies where our protagonists make increasingly bad decisions to an eventual boiling over point, where the audience is wincing and yelling “Don’t do it!”, which happens to be my FAVORITE kind of movie.
