Hollywood Movies

Things You Wouldn't Know Without the Hollywood Movies

1. It`s easy for anyone to land a plane, providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

2. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off - even while scuba diving.

3. During all police investigations, it will be necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

4. All beds have special L-shaped cover sheets which reach up to the armpit level on a woman but only to waist level on the man lying beside her.

5. The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building you want without difficulty.

6. If your town is threatened by an imminent natural disaster or killer beast, the mayor`s first concern will be the tourist trade or his forthcoming art exhibition.

7. When paying for a taxi, don't look at your wallet as you take out a bill - just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.

8. Kitchens don't have light switches. When entering a kitchen at night, you should open the fridge door and use that light instead.

9. Television news bulletins usually contain a story that affects you personally at that precise moment.

10. A single match will be sufficient to light up a room the size of Wembley Stadium.


  1. Those provided several good chuckles! And when I recently had to call a taxi, I did exactly that!

    I have never been able to find the lipstick they have in the movies. After decades of trying. All the lipstick I have bought rubs off immediately. So I quit buying any. My best lipstick is now a flavored chapstick. Glamour... I has it. hahaha!

    Have a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

  2. hahahaha!! I always wonder at the lipstick Sandee and sometimes even the hair :)

    Have a happy weekend!!

  3. oh, now i see! thanks...

    hugs, bee

  4. I like number six. That is so true. Interesting facts. Thanks Sandee. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend.

  5. Very interesting and funny Sandee! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful Saturday.

  6. Wait, wait, wait - you mean to tell me that these aren't real-life things and are only in the movies? Wow. I am so disappointed! After all, those L-shaped sheets would be great for those who have spouses who are always too hot and want to kick the sheets off while their significant other runs a bit colder and wants to stay covered!

    Hope you are having a wonderful end of September weekend!

  7. Oh, the magic of Hollywood. And Hollywood always has brilliant political comments!

    Have a great w/e. big hugs from wet jawjah, honey...

  8. LOL...these are so true!...another one is why do the police, PI's, CSI's, etc always enter a dark room with their guns drawn and a flashlight on?...why not just turn on the friggin lights inside?...

    Have a boating weekend and congrats on the pound lost so far this week! :)

  9. I hate it when #4 happens.

  10. I like all of these because they are all so true, and especially the lipstick, I have never found any that last until morning, lol! I love #10 now this one is right on!

    Great post Sandee, have a wonderful day ((HUGS))

  11. Love the one about the air vents. Even in Sci-Fi movies on spaceships, where space is always at a premium, there's plenty of room in the big air vents.

    And why is it that when a spy is hanging from the ceiling by a wire, the bad guys walk into the room without ever looking up? I always check the ceiling when I walk into a room.

  12. I'm with Odie, things should be reversed. Remember my first French movie in 1956 and it was an eye-opener for a young man.

  13. Sandee, #6 should be, "If your town is Chicago and threatened by an imminent natural disaster or killer beast, the mayor`s first concern getting re-elected by ghost voters. LOL

    Have a great weekend!


  14. My favorite is the good guy is a marksman with his weapon, then he can only hit near the bad guy, so the movie and can last longer. Man, I hate that!

  15. Hahaha! That lipstick one reminded me my pet peeve: they all wear make up when they wake up in the morning. Who wears make up to bed? Hehe!
    Enjoy your Sunday, Sandee!

  16. "All beds have special L-shaped cover sheets which reach up to the armpit level on a woman but only to waist level on the man lying beside her." At least in a PG movie

  17. Ha ha ha ha! This made me chuckle. They assume we're all stupid enough not to notice these things.

  18. LOL soooo true

    Have a good day :-)

  19. very true. even the smartest villain becomes a dud and idiot during the climax scene, he gets bashed by the hero effortlessly. the hero is always honest, upright and good Samaritan in all Indian movies and still beats the wickedest villain without use of any weapon.

  20. When there is a serial killer or a beast on the loose, it is assumed to be okay to enter an abandoned building in the middle of a stormy night with a single match as a light source...just sayin'.

  21. They could save a lot of money on paying pilots wages. Just make sure there is a talker up & downer in every tower & give the passenger come plot a free flight.
    There is never a light switch in any murder scene room on CSI either. Just little blue torches.

  22. You saved the best for last, Sandee. I was always surprised finding out the amount of light on match coul produce.
    The candles back in those movies were brighter also.

  23. Too funny! Yep, lipstick never comes off and the hair is always perfect! Oh, and the strip clubs are always a necessity .. LOL!
