TV and Ridiculous Physics

  1. Mar 13, 2008 #1
    Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place.
    I am a High School Physics teacher in Christchurch, New Zealand.
    I recently got my students to do some kinematics problems centered around a Dodge Nitro add where are car gets blown into the air.
    I am wondering if anyone could point me to any ads / movies/ tv programs with ridiculous stuff happening. Thinking along the lines of conservation of energy (elastic, kinetic or gravitational) for this round. Saving the bus jump scene from Speed for when we do kinematics.
