Heroines weep yet their eyes and noses don't turn red and runny.

The ugly duckling gets contact lenses and a decent hair cut, and is suddenly gorgeous.

When a character needs to escape through a window the window is always miraculously near a rain gutter or on the second floor above a patch of soft grass...

They run through 6 lanes of cars sometimes jumping over a car or two and yet never getting killed or even hurt.

Lately almost every action movie has a 100 lb. women beating up a 200 lb. man and sometimes is able to give him one kick and he goes flying across the room. Start at the 3 minute mark:

When the hero goes after the bad guy, he has no problem killing all guards around his target, but then he won't kill the bad guy, he'll "do the right thing"

Also, in a one on one fight, the characters can take a massive beating and still keep standing, but when it's convenient, one wine bottle to the head will knock someone out

And in a mass fight, when ten men are attacking the hero, he can knock em out with just a punch out two

In 2017, NYC police officers fired their guns in a total of 23 incidents. In total, NYC police officers fired 170 shots and hit their targets 75 times — a hit ratio of 44%. In most years, cops hit their target about 20% of the time. To be fair, officers fired their weapons during confrontations 59 times in 2005 and 147 times in 1996.

In police shows, officers fire their weapons that many times in a single episode. Criminals almost never hit their targets (unless their target is not a series regular), but the marksmanship of our heroes is nearly perfect.

The bad guys go around killing but as soon as the hero/heroine comes in, the bad guy ties them up and threatens to kill before actually shooting the gun! (to give them enough time to get out of the predicament)

Female detectives chasing bad guys in five inch heels


I don't want to highjack this but I know an ICU doctor who runs to codes (code blues) in 4 inch heels.... she's been doing it for at least 7 years). I used to think she was going to G-d forbid snap an ankle but never had any problems BH.

Heck, the characters who are supposed to be "ugly" are still usually better-looking than 95% of the human population LOL

There's another one that takes place in an old western bar. Guy's at the piano and someone says to him, "Bad guy walking in! B sharp!" (Or something like that.)


YES!!! You've got to hand it to Gary Larson.

Lol, no! Real life, remember?! Unfortunately for me, I find it just as irritating in real life as in the movies. I guess fortunately for me, not too many people actually do it.
