Top Ten Things That Only Happen In the MoviesBKAllmighty A lot of typical day-to-day activities we think of as being normal are only so normal because of the media's portrayal of them. They may be subtle, or a little extreme in nature, but because we're so used to seeing them happen on the big screen, we just naturally assume they're realistic parts of everyday life.
The Top Ten
-"Maybe we should split up.."
-"Good idea! " NOT. - NoSoup4You
Fantastically relatable list. This is exactly what goes through my mind! - keycha1n
One of my all-time favourite films (and soundtracks), The Graduate, has this happen, and even though it's completely unbelieveable, it's perfect. - PetSounds
Lol. I love this too. When Seinfeld was going to end I wrote a script for the finale with Jerry & Elaine deciding "what the heck let's get married". Kramer realizes his true love for Elaine and runs through the streets a la Dustin Hoffman & pounds on the glass screaming "Elaine, Elaine". - Billyv
No matter how crappy the car (even if it's a Chevy), I have never seen one just not start. Only in the movies - Shake_n_Bake13
Exactly! Especially happens in slasher films. Some maniac with a chainsaw is chasing his victim, who runs to the safety of her car... And them wouldn' t you just know it, it won't start! - Britgirl
Oh. This happened to me ONCE - AnonymousChick
Not to mention fight/battle sequences! - PositronWildhawk
High school is not a musical. Especially when you're studying for finals. - ethanmeinster
Exactly. I can't tell you how many times this has happened in movies. - Minecraftcrazy530
There's not vents everywhere if they noticed - kittylitature2
How the heck could you pull a panicking, 150 pound person from a fatal, I'd say about 3-5 thousand foot, drop?
Revolvers click because the hammer locks in place. Semi autos have hammers too, sometimes.
If you hear a click, the safety has actually been put on. - PetSounds
Even after sleeping? That's a bunch of nonsense. - ethanmeinster
Unless we're in a perfect Utopia, 9 out of 10 times, you would be the only one singing.
Emphasis on the song it's not like the movies - AnonymousChick
It happens so much that I get annoyed instead of saddened - higgsboson2142
In real life the force could still push you
