In the 90's, when the first Austin Powers movie came out, my friends and I had just watched the "Halloween" movies for the first time...so whenever people would talk about Mike Myers, we would get really confused and think they were talking the "Halloween" movies...I remember in like 5th or 6th grade, this boy in our class did something that was kinda awkwardly funny and someone was like, "Ha ha, that's something that Mike Myers would do!" and my friends and I got really confused and were like, "No, he wouldn't! He would attack you with a knife!"...and we couldn't understand why people were giving us strange looks!!

You know how really old movies are in black and white? Well, I used to believe that movies became black and white over a long period of time because all the colour faded away. So when I went to see a movie when I was about 7, I thought 'Wow this is going to be in black and white in 60 years :O'

When I was little I saw the movie Mary Poppins I loved how Mary could fly with her umbrella and wanted to fly as well.

One day it was rather windy out and got real excited. I went and got my mum's umbrella and ran to the picnic table and opened it up and jumped off it over and over again. I was determinded to fly.

It never happened.

When they write Disney on the screen in 'Disney Script' I thought the D looked like a weird G and it wasnt for years that I finally saw the "D". I always thought it odd that they would be Gisney films....

I used to believe that Storm Troopers in the Star Wars films were Robots. It never occurred to me to question how Luke and Han could put on the suits if there was a robot inside.

Right after I watched Jaws for the first time, I ate dinner with my family in our backyard. However, I had still not recovered from the movie.
Throughout the dinner, I was completely convinced that Jaws was going to come around the side of our house and devour me. We lived in St. Louis.

I was watching Cheaper by the Dozen with my seven year-old niece last year. At the end before the credits, they have some bloopers. One of them is of the actor who plays the oldest son snogging the actress who plays the mother.

My niece was horrified, and no matter how many times we tried to explain to her that they were actors and not really mother and son, she just couldn't believe that "She would FRENCH her own son!!"

When I was 9 years-old in 1997, my friends and I were obsessed with the Spice Girls and their movie SpiceWorld. In reality the movie is totally fictional, but for some reason we thought it was a real non-fiction documentary.
We also used to think that Sporty Spice and Posh Spice were the same person (I guess we never questioned how they could be in the same scene together if they were the same person) ha ha

The first time I saw the movie Spiderman, I was about 3 or 4. When he got bit by the spider I wouldn't eat or drick anything because I thought there was a spider in it.

When I was a little girl I was completely in love with Superman (and still I am...). My parents explained me that it was just "fiction" and that nobody canīt fly. Then, when I was watching the movies and seeing him flying I believed that Christopher Reeve had a string tied at his waist (to avoid his fall down...) and everytime I saw those scenes where Superman goes to the outside space I always thought "wow... what a looooong string" :) (I was so cute)

As a kid I loved the Star Wars movies, and wholeheartedly believed that they would happen in the future. I used to sit in my mom's room staring at a plastic bag trying to use the "force" to pick it up.

I didn't understand that movies could be filmed in separate scenes, and I wondered how the actors changed their clothes in the split second between scenes.

When I was little, I used to believe that, when I watched a movie, every person that I saw was a real (small) person that was somehow magically stuck inside that tape and forced to perform the exact same thing the exact same way over and over again. I always refrained from rewinding or fast forwarding the tape because I thought it meant that all the people had to do everything really fast.

When I was 7, I watched Stand and Deliver. When the guy has a heart attack, I asked, "did he really have a heart attack?(refering to the actor)" My mom told me yes, (refering to the actual person the movie was based on.) I thought, if he's having a heart attack, why won't the camera man or director help him?!

I used to believe that videotape projected like a film strip, so I took a video of the movie "Beethoven" and drew on the tape inside with a Sharpie, hoping to make a working animated cartoon once I put it in the VCR. When it didn't work (it looked a little garbled in places, nothing more), I spit on the tape, thinking the wad of spit, being thicker than ink, would surely show up on the screen for one frame. It caused the tape to snap when I rewound it, and it made my mother very unhappy.

I used to believe that movies were actually television news stories about really weird events. This was shattered at age 6 when I saw "The Making of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids."
