Have you ever heard someone say that their life is “like a movie” because of all the unbelievable things happening to them? Movies are indeed as good as their ability to leave a viewer shocked, touched or in consideration. And of course, I guess most of us have that friend or we are that friend that loves to be a “movie critic”, pointing out every little detail that is wrong in the movie. Characters going straight into a deadly trap, stopping their car in the woods in the middle of the night, then running like Usain Bolt himself from death, and of course, managing to escape it. Sometimes the movie plot is so involving that we might not notice some little details that make the movie scenario less relatable to real life.
Having this in mind, Reddit users shared their Shower Thoughts on some strange movie plot choices that actually make sense in real life. From Bruce Almighty changing the way we spell B-E-A-UTIFUL to kids sent to die in a fight in The Hunger Games, showing that this was actually a pretty common practice throughout our history.

In Home Alone, Uncle Franks says “look what you did you little jerk” to Kevin’s face. Meanwhile Kevin’s dad just sat there while his brother verbally abused his son. Peter McCallister was a bad dad BEFORE he forgot Kevin on 2 separate trips. Maybe that’s why Kevin was acting out in the first place.
