God I hate this cliché...


1.Mom needs to get to kids for some arbitrary nonsensical reason
2. obvious lethal danger in the way
3. mom thinks lethal danger doesn't apply to her because she misses her kids
4. does something completely retarded nobody would ever do.
5. Dies because she was stupid, thus won't get to her kids.

HOW MANY EFFING BRAINCELLS DOES IT TAKE TO REALIZE THAT GETTING TO POINT A LATER RATHER THAN SOONER IS BETTER THAN BEING DEAD?! IT MAKES NO SENSE AND THE STUPIDITY BRINGS DOWN AN OTHERWISE OK MOVIE.

Light travels faster than sound,
that's why people seem bright,
until you hear them.

That's why they are called 'irrational fears', I agree with you, she should have snapped out of it when she realised the men with guns were not joking around but some people think being a potential carrier of the ebola virus is all fine and dandy.

There are almost identical scenes in both Outbreak (the truck that tries to fight a helicopter gunship) and Contagion (the dude that plays hide and seek for half of the movie.)

Stupidity and fear are old bedfellows.



Opinions are just onions with pi in them.

She's actually psychotic/delusional in the book. Perhaps they tried to tone that aspect down for the movie and it made for the cliche, especially by adding the sick child aspect.


Milo, I've told you again and again - please, don't walk on the chickens!
