Things That Can Only Happen in Movies


Ferris_paradeOver at Nostalgia Central there is a great list of 40 things that can only happen in the movies. AÂ  good laugh for a Monday.

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

23. If being chased through a city you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick’s Day parade – at any time of the year.

39. All teen house parties have one of every stereotypical subculture present (even people who aren’t liked and would never get invited to parties).

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

14. On a police stake-out, the action will only ever take place when food is being consumed and scalding hot coffees are perched precariously on the dashboard . . .

32. Rather than wasting bullets, megalomaniacs prefer to kill their enemies with complicated devices incorporating fuses, pulleys, deadly gases, lasers and man-eating sharks.

2. When paying for a taxi, don’t look at your wallet as you take out a note. Just grab one out at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

      The ones I could read were great! Link to read all items is inaccesable. Wonder if this one is on there: Why do we rarely see a television in a home on a TV or movie set? EVERY American family has at least 2!

      TV or Movie moms are NEVER in a house coat. They are always dressed to dome degree (Maybe not the nth, but you get the picture)

      -Or- every non chase car night scene in a movie has a wet surface. They tell me affect, but one begins to think that movies are only filmed at night and right after a rain.

      -OR- there never seems to be any king of screaming or crying kid in resturant scenes. It is alway intimate……

      Only in movie that with sports oriented themes, can the lead actor or hero make eye contact with the his/her one and only in the crowd or in the stands and visa versa.

      -Or- when you throw a plate or shoe it misses, but PIES always hit their mark. Hell maybe Rumsfeld should have installed laser guided pies for the military. Iraq would be dessert by now. Get it Dessert?! (Sometimes I crack my self up)
