Fact or Fiction: Hollywood Life Lessons An interesting look at the life lessons Hollywood provides… Submitted by Bridget Walsh, Resident Assistant, Colorado State University
Alcohol + Sex = BAD IDEA Knocked Up FACT Just like in real life, drinking and having sex can lead to some unwanted complications, whether its pregnancy, STDs, or emotional distress.
Party It Up, Youll Be Fine Tomorrow Cant Hardly Wait, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, American Pie FICTION Unlike what the movies show, there are consequences to drinking, whether its an MIP, a write-up, or at the very least a hangover
It Only Takes 1 (maybe 2) People To Save The World/Day 5 th Element, Bad Boys, Rush hour, any action flick, really FICTION Its ok to ask for help. No one expects you to solve all of your problems and everyone elses 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, youll know, but theres no use trying to make someone who isnt 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 its over, well, it sucks. But dont 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. Theres a time to have kids, and college isnt 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 wouldnt 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 arent really Vampires or Werewolves. RAs, 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 isnt 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.
