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).
My sister and I used to "play pretend" and we would often act like characters from Disney movies we had seen.
I knew that I was better then my sister at acting because I was convinced that which ever character I played I looked and sounded exactly like them.
When I was little we went to a lot of movies, which I loved, but I could never figure out how all the people, horses, etc. got on the stage behind that curtain!
i used to believe when a woman gave birth on television it was real. I found it very hard to believe u could talk and actress into doing that. I changed my mind when i was asked to play Tamar in a church play.
I used to believe Lindsay Lohan had a real twin and that people were not showing her very much to keep her twin a secret.
I used to believe that the killer in the 'Scream' movies was named "Scream-Killer"(he's actually named Ghostface) and was the polite serial killer because he used to call people before killing them.
Until I was about 10, I never understood why people claimed to have cried during the Disney movie "Bambi". That was because I had never registered the fact that Bambi's mother had been shot and died - I was under the impression that she had been hit with tranquilizer and taken to a wildlife preserve. At the time it seemed like a perfectly good explanation to me. Wouldn't you be sad if your mom was taken to a preserve and you weren't?
Of course, the logic doesn't stop people from teasing me relentlessly.
In the film 'Pulp Fiction', there is a line "Check out the big brains on Brett". my family has it as a soundbyte on the computer. As a little kid, I heard it as "Check out the big brains on BREAD"! I pictured a giant brain on two pieces of HUUUUUUUUGE white bread.
i used to believe that actors in the film actually worked on screen in the movie theatre as on a stage and they come out when the theatre gets empty.
I used to think that Dr. Doolittle (Dr. Doolittle) and Eliza Doolittle (My Fair Lady) were related to one another- amazing, since "Dr. Doolittle" is also "Professor Higgins"!
I used to believe that Ben Stiller and Will Ferell were the same person.
I used to believe that Al Pacino and Al Capone were the same people.
When I was little I always thought that the actors loved each other in real life. I grew up miserable because I found out it wasn't true.
When I was younger, about 5, I thought Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange" (Dystopian Sci-Fi movie/novel) had something to do with an orange getting stuck in a clock and had no clue why it would get rated X because of that. I know now that it is a very violent movie and is condemned by Catholics.
