I used to believe that "adult movie" referred to documentaries and such; boring, educational movies that only adults would want to watch.
When I saw Rain Man for the first time, the back of the box said "Best Actor Dustin Hoffman." Being a kid, it mystified me that someone would actually name their child Best Actor....
once iwas watching the movie face off and my mom pretended that she took my nose off so i started to cry,wine and yell give me back my nose
Before I could read (around the age of 4) I thought that when a movie ended there was a roll inside of tv that displayed the same credits over and over - as they rolled up the screen they appeared at the bottom again.
I heard about the musical Cabaret and thought the characters were involved in World War 2. (They were based on real people, but they never fought in the war)
When I was little my older sisters used to go to the 'pictures' on a Friday or Saturday night. I didn't realise that 'pictures' meant the cinema and I used to envisage my sisters and their friends walking around a museum or art gallery type of set up just looking at pictures. I once asked them to let me know if they saw a picture of Knight Rider, they thought I was very weird.
When I was little I thought that videotapes worked by sending a signal to the actors who would then quick get ready and perform the movie for you. If you pressed pause, they would stand totally still, and if you pressed rewind they would do it all backward.
When I was younger, I believed that the Chinese Mann Theatre was built in honour of Bruce Lee.
On "Entertainment Tonight", they had a promo about "Zoolander" ... andthe way they did the promo, I thought that Derek Zoolander was an actual male model ... who looked remarkably like Ben Stiller ...
I used to believe that I was in a movie that was beeing filmed, and that one day it would come out in theaters. And I was not just an actor, but a writer and director of that movie too. When a red car passed me on my way to school, it passed me because I wrote that in the movie of my life a red car passes me on my way to school. I thought that all movies I saw on tv or in theaters were somebodys life and were made like this - with an invisible crew. :)
When i was little i used to think the screens in the movie theater were HUGE ones of those TV VCR mixes. I thought there were HUGE videos that a whole army of people would have to carry in. I also thought there were buttons on the bottom, so one time when the movie stopped due to "technical difficulties" i ran up to the screen and searched for a play button. needless to say, i didnt find it.
When I was little I believed that Casper the ghost from the movie Casper was real. Because he turned into a hot guy when he temporarily came back to life at the end of the movie I had a huge crush on him. I used to believe I was in love with him and that someday we would meet and marry. I daydreamed about our wedding and everything!
I used to believe that the credits at the end of the movies were the names of the people in the theater watching the film. I remember being terribly disappointed at not seeing my name on the screen but reasoned that I was too young to be counted.
In that old peter pan movie where Peter begs for you to clap so Tinkerbell wont die I believed that he could really see me in my house. At fist I didn't clap, my mom was and going 'come on!'. Then I sissy clapped but he was begging me so hard, so desperate, I'd finally clapped like crazy. Luckily Tinkerbell lived. I thought it was all due to me.
I used to believe the theater near me was actually called "a theater near you," as in coming to a theater near you. I think it was a cineplex.
When I was 14 (soooo embarrassing...) my friends and I got in big trouble for renting "Basic Instinct" on an afternoon off from school. But we weren't bad kids - just naive. You see, we thought all the sex and bad language was edited out for home video since once they're rented, anyone in the house can see them. So we had the double shock of seeing more than we wanted to and then getting in trouble for it!
I believed that if you recoreded all the previews for a movie you could pice them al together and watch the entire thing.
After watching the film Mary poppins when I was a little girl, I was convinced that if I clicked hard enough, my bed would make itself.... It didnt work. Unfortunately, it didnt stop me trying to slide down the banister, and the result was a broken arm.
I never got around to trying tea on the ceiling, as of that day I stuck with flying kites.
When I was young, I asked my mom how they filmed stuff like people jumping off cliffs, and she explained that they'd have a stuntman jump and land on a cushion, and then they'd move the cushion and show the actor on the ground, as though he'd landed there. Somehow, I got it turned around, and thought that if the stuntman did the jump, he'd actually land on the hard ground, and then they'd pick him up and put a cushion under him and pick up the filming again. I couldn't understand why that would prevent him from getting injured, or why I hadn't see these cushions in the movies.
This is very sad - my neice (22) believed that the 'bloopers' at the end of animation movies like 'Toy Story' where real - she really believed that it was strange that they would have made such mistakes in filming an animation.
While everyone else listened to her in stunned silence I broke it to her gently pretending that she was just joking (I'm not too sure if she 'gets it' though).
