People Are Sharing The “Totally Normal” Things From Movies That “Never Happen In Real Life” (21 Posts)

Most of us watch movies to escape from reality, so it’s no surprise that realism isn’t their strong suit. 

In general movies are chock-full of tropes that don’t actually hold up to scrutiny, like when a sharp-eyed investigator instructs his tech nerd underling to “ENHANCE!” and a low-resolution image magically becomes crystal clear, or when the hero knows exactly how to punch someone so they immediately fall unconscious but are otherwise unharmed.

A thread on Reddit recently chronicled the things that are perfectly normal in movies but non-existent in real life.

Here are some of the unrealistic movie moments that never happen in real life:
