    Indeed, not realistic, but great. Remember it has to do with the era in which the movie or series was filmed. In the 1930's-1970's people smoked like chimneys on TV and in movies (you almost can't imagine Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart, Dean Martin or Sammy Davis jr. without a cigarette attached to them!). I remember my mom always wondering if people really immediately got themselves an alcoholic drink after coming home from work, each time she saw J.R. on Dallas (most prominently) doing it. None of us drinks, so she always noticed and still notices that, LOL.

    Very true!!!
    Thats exactly what I thought while watching the movie Wicker Park; Josh Hartnett's character's action would get him arrested in real life!

    And this is especially in tv; they spend alot of time in coffee shops. No one really goes to work.

    Woman wakes up in the night after hearing a noise downstairs, or returns home to find the front door ajar. She then stumbles around looking for the intruder in the dark. TURN ON THE GODDAM LIGHTS!!!!!

    In horror movies, women will always go running through a forest, squealing their heads off while being pursued by the psycho killer and will always, ALWAYS break their ankle and fall.

    women go to bed and have showers with a full face of makeup... and when they wake up they don't have panda eyes or a makeup stained pillow. But the moment that they cry.. the mascara WILL run down their face. Talk about convenient makeup!

    You are so right! I can think of three movies right now.

    I LOVED the way Bette Davis smoked. So stylized. Her cigarette would be lit by a man and instead of inhaling the first puff, she'd blow the smoke out - creating a big cloud of smoke around her.

    I love when the man gets out of bed after sex and he's wearing shorts or she's wearing a camisole. WTF?

    Or, to add to that one, wanders around the house saying "Heelllooo?" Does she expect the intruder to answer her? "Oh, sorry, I just wandered into this locked, occupied house. I'll be leaving now."

    Cops/CSI's go into dark crime scene buildings/houses at night and pull out their flashlights to start looking for evidence. Hello? You could see much better if you turned on the lights!

    People go into bars, order drinks, the bartender brings a drink, and then something happens (argument, etc.) and the person gets up and leaves without taking a sip! Drives me crazy.

    ^Almost during the ENTIRE series of The X-Files it was either dark or rotten weather, like rain or just grey. I guess they needed an excuse to wear those long trench coats of theirs

    when you finally "kill" the crazy murderer, you should always just assume he's dead. That way he can jump back up and kill you.

    In high school movies, the cheerleaders wear their uniforms to school every day.

    On the first day of school, everyone gathers outside of the building according to cliques. Jocks, Nerds, Minorities, Bullies, and Cheerleaders. The cheerleaders are wearing their uniforms and tumbling or doing stunts. The Bullies are always picking on the Nerds. As the main character's mom drops them off in front of the school. they walk through a clearing in the middle of all the groups and everyone stares at them.

    If it's a Mary-Kate and Ashley movie, they are being raised by a single father who frequently mentions how much they look like/remind him of their dead mother.

    How about the main character who's fat, ugly, bald, poor, and stupid with a hot wife. This goes for TV and movies. Yeah, like this happens in real life!
