18 People Share the One Thing Movies Do That Drives Them Nuts

We all have our quirks. Our pet peeves. The things that get under our skin – and often, those are also things that other people don’t even notice.

So, there’s a chance that what bugs these 18 people when they see it done in a movie won’t even register as annoying to you, but still….maybe they will.

Let’s take a look!

18. Much easier to win that way.

Fight scenes with multiple attackers.

They’re all so polite, waiting for their friends to get their ass kicked before engaging.

In reality you get jumped by everyone at the same time.

17. You’re going to be hungry later!

When people order food in a restaurant and then leave before it arrives.

At least get it to go.

16. The apple. Ha!

College professor here. Pet peeves about how college is depicted:

Every class is in a medieval European-style amphitheater classroom

Professors are all living in giant 6,000 sq ft houses, even if they teach literature or sociology

Professors only address students by their last names, and all students call professors “sir”

Students or professors strolling down the quad with a leather courier bag worth a month’s pay, for some reason always eating an apple


15. Got off lucky.

In fires nobody dies of smoke inhalation.

They’ll be in there for ages, merrily chatting away, coughing, miraculous escape (lifting a burning beam out the way maybe), they get outside and are fine!

Maybe a smudge of soot on the face and a cough then on their merry way.

14. Do not try this at home.

Someone being hit in the head, loses consciousness, and two minutes later getting up as if nothing happened.

13. Don’t we all have bulletproof couches?

Good guy jumps behind some furniture and the bad guys unloads 1000 rounds into it and none of them go through.

What the fuck is that couch made of!?

12. I really don’t think it’s that easy. Thank goodness.

Snapping peoples necks with a quick twisting motion at the jaw.

11. Those guys need better training!

10 trained soldiers with automatic weapons, a couple of snipers and a helicopter gunship are all shooting at the fleeing heroes.

The only thing they manage to hit is the ground just behind their feet.

10. You won’t find me in an air duct.

Gunfire indoors or inside cars and everyone can hear fine afterwards

Big explosions that throw people around but have no shrapnel

Windows that can be jumped through without shredding your skin

People traversing through air ducts

9. I don’t think so.

“I’ve got a plan”

“Great. What is it?”

“No time. Just trust me.”

8. No pancake left behind.

Big breakfasts that no one eats because the characters are in a hurry and running out the door.

Me personally, I’ll be late to whatever for some pancakes/waffles.

7. Tell the story in case you’re about to die.

A: “I have something important to tell you. It’s about the Jones case.”

B: “What’s up? What’d you find?”

A: “Can’t talk now. Meet me tomorrow at 9.”

B: “A! Tell me what’s going on!”

A: “No, not now. Tomorrow at 9.”

A is found murdered the next morning, B is haunted by conversation. Sets off on worldwide mission to solve the murder and uncover the cover-up.

6. There are no other tools.

I think Hollywood only has two sound effects for mechanics shops.

Air impact guns buzzing like a nascar pit stop and some hand ratchets clicking.

In Hollywood you could get a scene of someone working on the international space station and the back ground noise would be a nascar pit stop air gun.

5. Yeah that’s not a thing.

Doctors doing everything in medical settings. Scanning the patient, setting up IV’s, interpreting brain MRI’s.

Nurses who?

Radiographers what?

4. It’s really setting the rest of us up to feel like failures.

Clean houses where there are 3 to 4 chaotic children.

Living spaces in tv and movies are always spotless. That is, unless there’s a plot- or character-specific reason why it’s not.

And they’re usually decorated very well no matter how poor they are.

3. Wild how that happens.

Action movies where the good guy’s car gets rammed or gets in bad wreck and it’s still drivable and the airbag doesn’t deploy.

2. Nerds can’t do that.

Cop looking at blurry CCTV image

Cop: “Can you clean up the image?”

Nerd: “Sure, computer enhance sector theta 6”

crystal clear image appears on screen

Cop: “Oh my god”

1. Are you sure you just don’t have the right guns.

you don’t have unlimited ammo.

Someone must’ve turned on sv_cheats and forgot to turn it off

Some of these I definitely get! Different strokes for different folks.
