5 Things Hollywood Movies Have Been Lying About

April 15, 2020

We’ve been watching Hollywood movies for years now and there is no doubting that they are entertaining. But they have also been taking us for a ride and we think it’s time to call them out.

Here’s a list of 5 things Hollywood movies have been lying about for a while now.

1. People taking bullets for other people.

And they do it in split seconds. But in real life nobody wants to die so just like you I am wondering where they got this very selfless idea from.

2. Bullets never hitting the target.

Case in point James Bond. Cats may have 9 lives but James Bond is actually immune to death. 10 supposedly well trained men chasing and shooting after him but somehow he dodges every single bullet. We stopped buying this magic show in primary 5.

3. Working all night and still killing the presentation the next morning at work.

No boo, don’t be fooled. In real life this ends in tears because you will first wake up by 10; 25 am. And spend 30 mins in traffic so that by the time you get to the office the meeting for presentation would have ended and worst case scenario you would have a query sitting pretty for you.

4. Waking up with your eyebrows still in line.

 Another lie, this never happens. Sleeping is like wrestling with your pillow so there’s no way you’ll emerge a battlefield with your brows the way you drew them. We know these actresses be wearing makeup just when they wake up.

5. Glorious sex scenes.

Sex is always ends in a glorious mutual orgasm? Let’s be realistic please. And we actually have a list of 7 ways movies have lied to us about sex.

Which lie did we miss? Drop it in the comments.
