Things That Always Happen in Movies, But Never Ever in Real Life

Ever notice that despite your best efforts, more often than not your life doesn’t resemble a movie? Don’t worry, it’s not your fault, movies just keep recycling completely unrealistic plot devices that never actually occur in real life, we just think they do. We’ve seen them in countless films and have just come to expect to come across them at some point in our own lives, or at the very least in other people’s, but that’s rarely if ever the case.

This started out as a comment thread on reddit, and I decided to use my rudimentary animation skills to bring to life (so to speak) some of the best observations I found. I’ve illustrated about 15 movie scenarios which you can check out below, that more than likely will never, ever happen to you. If you’ve got any more you can think of, feel free to add them in the comments, and I’ll see if maybe I can animate them at some point.
