40 Things That Only Happen in the Movies.


I am that woman. Yes, I am the one that watches a movie and bursts everyone's bubble by whispering (usually to myself, but someone ALWAYS hears me) "Yeah, like that could ever happen". It turns out that my dream crushing observances have actually been compiled to a list of 40. Check it out. I have listed for enjoyment my favorite five.

1. It is always possible to find a parking spot directly outside or opposite the building you are visiting.

2. If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.

3. If you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts, your opponents will wait patiently to attack you one by one by dancing around you in a threatening manner until you have defeated their predecessor.

4. Anyone can land a 747 as long as there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

5. Cars will explode instantly when struck by a single bullet.

We watched a few movies this weekend with our family and I think Godzilla and the Island contained at least 1/2, if not more, of these between the two movies!! LOL - got to love hollywood-reality!

Here's what bothers me about TV and the movies...when people hang up on someone else on the phone. On TV or in the movies you ALWAYS immediately hear the dial tone. Does that ever happen in real life? NO! You get dead silence - no dial tone! Come on people, really...
