Lois was dumb. How many times do airplane attendants tell you to hook up your own belts and oxygen masks before helping the passenger next to you? Apparently not enough for this Lois Lane, such that we get to see her bouncing around the airplane for the next few moments. But while that may be written off as a 'heat-of-the-moment' kind of mistake, there is no justifying the dephts of idiocy to which she sinks when she brings her toddler with her while on a stake-out of a known criminal mastermind who's already tried to harm her in the past. The causality I'm trying to figure out is whether Bosworth saw how stupid the character was and portrayed her accordingly, or if Bosworth had no intention of doing so and instead her doe-eyed performance contributed to the overall perception of Lois' astounding naivety.
Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
I HATED Lois in this movie. You know, when I first saw that scene with her bringing her kid on the boat, I was incredulous at her utter disregard for his safety. I mean, that's borderline child endangerment. And when I saw her flirting and flying with Superman, emotionally cheating on her faithful, supportive fiance, who to me was the real hero
in this movie, that sealed it for me.
