An interesting look at the life
lessons Hollywood provides…
Alcohol + Sex = BAD IDEA
Knocked Up
 FACT
 Just like in real life,
drinking and having
sex can lead to some
unwanted
complications,
whether it’s
pregnancy, STD’s, or
emotional distress.
Party It Up, You’ll Be Fine
Tomorrow
Can’t Hardly Wait, Harold
and Kumar Go to White
Castle, American Pie
 FICTION
 Unlike what the movies
show, there are
consequences to
drinking, whether it’s an
MIP, a write-up, or at the
very least a hangover
It Only Takes 1 (maybe 2) People
To Save The World/Day
5th Element, Bad Boys,
Rush hour, any action
flick, really
 FICTION
 It’s ok to ask for help. No
one expects you to solve
all of your problems and
everyone else’s problems
on your own.
You Will Meet One Person, Fall In
Love, And Live Happily Ever After
Any romantic movie ever
created
 FICTION
 Finding the right person is
difficult and takes time.
When you meet the right
person, you’ll know, but
there’s no use trying to
make someone who isn’t
right, into the person for
you.
Love is Tricky/Love Sucks
Eternal Sunshine,
Garden State, A Lot
Like Love
 FACT
 Being in love takes
work and when it’s
over, well, it sucks.
But don’t worry, life
goes on.
Kids Are Big Responsibilities
Daddy Day Care,
Cheaper by the
Dozen, Big Daddy,
Raising Helen
 FACT
 Taking care of kids is
a LOT of work.
There’s a time to
have kids, and
college isn’t the time.
If You Start A Musical Number,
Everyone Will Know The Moves
And Join In
Musicals
 FALSE
 Sadly, if you started
singing and dancing
on the plaza, no one
may join in. They
might call the police,
though. And the
police wouldn’t join
either…
Serial Killers, Freak Accidents, and
Supernatural Phenomenon are all,
actually, very common
Horror Films
 FICTION
 No, death will not hunt
you down. No, there
aren’t really Vampires or
Werewolves.
RA’s, though, are scarier
then all of those
combined.
If You Are In a Foreign Country,
Everyone Will Speak Perfect English
James Bond, Austin
Powers, The Italian
Job, The Terminal
 FICTION
 America isn’t the
center of the world
and other countries
speak different
languages.
The moral of this story? While movies show great
examples of what life is really like, you should
think twice before you believe everything you see.
