11 Things That Can Only Happen in Movies and Not in Real Life

8 months ago

Anyone can make mistakes, and filmmakers are no exception. Every movie contains bloopers made due to carelessness. However, it seems that some blunders are intentionally left to cleverly twist the plot. But that doesn’t mean we don’t notice these mistakes.

The heroine never forgets about hair removal.

It’s quite doubtful that women’s skin would be perfectly smooth even when they’re fighting aliens or surviving in apocalyptic conditions. In the movie ’Edge of Tomorrow,’ Emily Blunt played the role of a tough sergeant who fights off invaders alongside men. However, according to filmmakers, the character still managed to make the epilation during her free time.

The heroine emerges from the water with flawless makeup.

It’s simply unrealistic for a rescuer to come out of the water looking as if she just visited a makeup artist. Even waterproof cosmetics wouldn’t likely withstand the test of water and sun throughout a lifeguard’s workday.

A character suddenly masters a complex skill.

As the main character of the series Wednesday says, she doesn’t have a social media account or mobile phone, and she doesn’t know how to use a computer. This is why she writes her book with the help of a typewriter. But at the end of the first season, she receives a smartphone as a gift and starts using it with confidence.

Let’s assume that she knows how to use modern phones, she just doesn’t like them. But still, you need some time to get used to a device. At the same time, Wednesday scrolls down her messages in a way as if she’s been using this phone for a long time.

Action heroines have flawless hairstyle and makeup.

Female characters’ hairstyles and makeup usually look terrific no matter what. Just look at Natasha Romanoff. She runs, sweats, falls, and rolls on the dirty floor, but her locks remain perfect, and her eyeshadow doesn’t get smudged.

Besides, wearing hair loose during a fight is impractical because your opponent can grab it. Isn’t it more logical to put it up in a bun or ponytail?

Travelers wear new outfits every day.

The series Word of Honor has complex characters and a twisted plot, but sooner or later the audience begins to ask themselves: where does the hero get his beautiful outfits from? He carries only his fan, while his maid has only a fighting whip. But he somehow manages to change his outfits in each new episode. Perhaps he’s followed by a caravan stuffed with clothes for him, we just can’t see it.

Unique artifacts disappear from the narrative.

Heroes often come across cool artifacts that could help them defeat the main villain. However, the storytellers tend to “forget” about them. There’s even a playful video about how “Harry Potter” should have ended. The essence of it is that with the help of the Time-Turner, adult wizards could have traveled back in time and safeguarded the magical world from Voldemort.

By the way, in the book “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” the villains attempted to bring back one of the heroes to life using an enhanced Time-Turner.

The heroine loses her self-preservation instinct.

Since the days of Little Red Riding Hood, young girls have acted extremely imprudently. Like Rhaenyra from House of the Dragon. She seems to be an intelligent girl who reads books. And the historical chronicles clearly describe the struggle for power.

Rhaenyra knew that her uncle Daemon wanted to seize the throne, but ended up going with this dangerous man into the city at night. It all ended disastrously. It’s a miracle that no one attacked the princess in the slums when Daemon left her alone.

A villain escapes from a fortified prison.

We’ve already seen this in The Silence of the Lambs and Kung Fu Panda. A villain is inside a fortified cell and their arms and legs are in chains, but they still manage to escape. The villain in the series Wednesday managed to perform this trick too.

In general, the idea of the screenwriters is quite obvious. They decided not to invent a new evil, so in the second season, the heroine will be fighting a familiar outlaw.

Female secret agents and spies can’t live a day without wearing high heels.

Perhaps loose hair isn’t that convenient, but it is nothing compared to high heels. The makers of Charlie’s Angels, for example, seemed to enjoy the fact that the 3 main heroines had to fight in high heels.

People brush their teeth without toothpaste.

The Devil Wears Prada starts with a scene where Anne Hathaway’s character is preparing for a new day. And as we can see in the shot above, she’s brushing her teeth. But where is the foam?

In real life, toothpaste is always all around our mouth when we brush our teeth. But we couldn’t find any trace of toothpaste in Anne’s mouth. Perhaps, moviemakers believe that it doesn’t look good on screen.

The heroine looks like a star on the red carpet even during a pirate attack.

In the comedy, Jennifer Lopez plays a bride whose wedding is disrupted by the appearance of pirates. The woman fights against the villains. But her hairstyle and makeup remain unaffected. And her body glistens not from sweat, but from the highlighter.

Most probably, these inaccuracies are left in films for the sake of beautiful pictures and exciting plot twists. However, sometimes filmmakers do overlook very real blunders.
