So I was walking home today and it started pouring rain and of course, I hadn’t brought my umbrella (or jacket!) with me so I was getting pretty drenched. As I walked (very quickly!) I found myself thinking, wouldn’t it be nice if some kind stranger offered me their umbrella? And then I remembered… this isn’t a movie, this is real life! So not gonna happen! haha
Which got me thinking… what else happens in movies that doesn’t happen in real life?
Just for fun… anyone want to play?

Totally random but this is something that always bugs me. In real life, most people end their phone conversations with a “goodbye” or whatever but in the movies (and on TV), they just hang up. Like, how do you know your conversation is over without the appropriate ending? It doesn’t make sense.

@CorgiTales: Ooh, good one!
How about that perfectly clean baby after its just exited a vagina? That certainly doesn’t happen in real life.

The bad guy always misses and the hero hits the target with the first shot. I’m talking to you, James Bond.

Also– people rarely set times for things in movies. They’ll say: Want to go out tonight? and the person will say yes, then they go away. I’m like…. 6pm? 7pm? 8pm? I would need to know!

Makeup and hair always look perfect. Even during and after super romantic hot sexy sex in which no one makes stupid faces or gets in ugly looking positions.

I hate in action type movies that people never need to use the bathroom, eat, shower, but magically the women have lipgloss on, hair in check and everyone has plenty of energy to keep running from or pursuing the enemy. All the days blend together.
I’m like: You just totaled you car, climbed out of a ditch and walked for 2 days along the side of the road, and you look better than I do on a good day! No bathroom, no hunger. Simply amazing!

The no saying goodbye thing on the phone is a HUGE pet peeve of mine! Maybe this is just me, but I sure don’t walk around the house fully dressed. As far as I’m concerned, movies only. In that world, people only wear their pajamas/sleep shirts right before bed. I slip into house/sleep clothes as soon as I step inside!

I’ve always wanted someone to narrate my life. Sometimes I do it in my head, just for kicks.

When the females in action movies are able to jump, kick, flip, whatever else in skin tight clothing and stilleto heels. No way!

I would love having theme music that changed according to what I was doing. I think it would keep me way more motivated. XP
Also, in the movies, artistic venues never seem to take any type of effort. Want to do a play? BAM. Nobody had to practice, nobody had to build a set, make programs, make a poster, take promotional pictures, or get fitted for costumes. It’s just all done.
I’m also gonna go out on a limb and say that pretty much any portrayl of art school is wrong.
@MrsLoebbs: I totally agree! I can barely even walk in stilettos. Also, someone please tell me how cleavage is going to stop a bullet/projectile from killing you?
