Good Guys Only Drink Black Coffee And Other Movie Lies

I’ve seen more movies then most people ever will so I am extremely familiar with the cliche’s like “Good guys only drink black coffee”, “No one needs to look at the road” and “Your gay best friend is always worried about straight people problems”. I am happy Mick Lasalle from the San Fransisco Chronicle put together a list of these lies and proves them wrong.

2. The first thing everybody does when they come home from work is get a beer out of the refrigerator.

Unless they make more than $100,000 a year. Then it’s wine or┬áspirits.

3. Eat and drink whatever you want – you’ll be fine.

There’s a moment in “Up in the Air” when George Clooney comes home and pours himself a big fat drink that, for a moment, made me think I wasn’t drinking enough. But no, serving sizes are huge in movies. No one has dinner without wine, and the wineglass is always enormous. The same principle applies to food. In real life, if you go to a restaurant and notice who is eating the really fattening food, it’s almost always someone overweight or younger than 25. But in the movies, you’ll see Tom Cruise eating ice cream cones, as if he got to look like that by stuffing his face. He didn’t.

4. Driving is so easy, you don’t even have to look at the road.

Actually, you do need to look at the road. In the movies, the actor isn’t really driving. A truck (with a camera) is in front towing the┬ácar.
