Whether you loved or hated our own Lisa Schwarzbaum gave it a B — you’ve got to admit the movie put the ‘rage’ in outrageous. And yeah, I know that doesn’t really make sense, but neither did most of the film. Anyhow, I finally got around to seeing the James McAvoy–Angelina Jolie action vehicle over the weekend, and as the (undeniably enjoyable) ridiculata piled up, I began to formulate the following quiz in my head.

The most ridiculous plot point in Wanted involved:

A. Morgan Freeman’s character translating binary code spat out by the “Loom of Fate” to determine which global bad guys were up for assassination.
B. A magical wax bath healing (overnight!) the injuries McAvoy sustained after colliding face-first with a cement overpass during a rousing game of subway surfing.
C. McAvoy’s character using a dump truck full of peanut butter to capture a small army of rats-cum-suicide-bombers.
D. Multiple characters surviving (practically unscathed) after their train car plummeted several thousand feet off a bridge and then wedged itself between the narrowing rock edges of an Eastern European canyon.
E. A shrill female character cheating on the hotness that is James McAvoy.
F. Other. [Fill in your option in the comments.]

I know, I know, I didn’t leave you the choice of “all of the above,” but that would be too easy. Now quit procrastinating and answer the question already!
