20 Things That Happen In Movies But Never In Real Life

Movies are supposed to be aesthetic art pieces and entertaining stories of everyday, real-life situations. But, it so happens that many things that happen in movies never, ever happen in real life. How many times have you been sitting down watching a film and realize to yourself—nah, this would never go down in real life?

From conversations to accidents and events, there are so many times we watch movies and feel as though it’s way too dramatized and fake. Recently, Reddit users began to share their takes on things movies totally spice up that you’d never see off the big screen.

a zillion lit candles.

Who lights them all?

Don’t they worry about fire?

When did they buy them?

How come the first ones haven’t finished burning by the time they get to the last ones?

What about the heat?

How long would it take to light them all?

12.

When soldiers die on the battlefield in movies, its usually a whole ordeal with last words and grunting and the injured soldier slowly becoming lifeless as a buddy holds him in his arms. All the while the battle seemingly lulls off as this one random guy is dying.

This just doesn’t happen. Usually battlefield deaths are quick and very sudden. A lot of the time the guy hit either isn’t noticed until later or is dead before they hit the ground.

Anyone living any kind of happy morning scenario before school or work. Why does your school not start until noon?!

The phone only rings to move the plot along. IRL my phone only rings due to scammers or bots calling from an Arlington, Va number.

16.

In movies with any kind of trial scene there’s always a dramatic moment where one of the attorneys presents a witness or piece of evidence that completely changes the course of the trial. Something that neither the judge or opposing attorney knew about.

Like sorry buddy, but the discovery deadline was a month ago.

People cough and it’s always indicative of an incoming terminal illness. A phone rings and it’s terrible/pertinent news.

In real life people cough because there’s something tickling their throat or because they swallowed something funny. You answer a phone call and Liz is trying to sell you a cheap stay in Las Vegas even though you’ve told that cunt to fuck off more than three times in the last month.
