Top Ten Things That Only Happen In the MoviesA 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

-"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

Not to mention fight/battle sequences! - PositronWildhawk

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
