I used to believe that Bruce Lee died because he burst from being full of sweat. My dad told me that he had his sweat glands removed so that he wouldn't sweat on film. Sooo embarassing.
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.
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....
When I first started to hear about sci-fi movies, I thought that when two people kissed in a movie it was a special effect because they were not lovers in real life...
My sister used the think that the number of stars a film got represented how many movie stars were in the movie. She was 23 at the time.......
When watching appolo 13, I felt terribly sorry for the man called Housten; everyone seemed to want him to solve all their problems!
I believed this until an embarrassingly old age.
In the Hunt For Red October, the first few minutes are spoken in Russian with English subtitles just to convey that it is a Russian submarine.It then switches to English speaking. My friend thought that in those first few minutes he was able to learn the Russian language and comprehend everything that was said from then on!
my friend thought that the film 'the hulk' was about the jolly green giant from the sweetcorn adverts.
When I was little and I believed that anytime I watched a VHS, the actors were actually inside the movie, so I gave them 10 minute to get ready every time I put a VHS into the VCR
Once I wrote a letter to the actor Devon Sawa, who I was in love with at the time, and threw in into the fire thinking that if Mary Poppins got that letter from Jane and Michael Banks he would get it as well.
A cousin of mine used to believe that you could only see movies in the country in which they were made. Since Star Wars was an American movie, you could only see it in America, and if the Brits wanted to see Star Wars, for example, they would have to make their own British version.
Little did he know that most of Star Wars was filmed in Britain!
When I was 6 or 7, I was leaving my friend Mason's house when an ad for an R-rated movie came on the TV. I said the movie looked cool and he said "Too bad we can't see it, 'cause it's rated R, for adults." For some reason, I heard "'cause it's rated R, for dogs." My parents were unable to convince me that R-rated movies weren't for dogs and were actually for grown-ups. The next time I went to Mason's we straightened it all out, but to this day whenever my parents hear "Rated R" at the end of a movie advertisement, they'll say "for dogs!"
I remember an ad for the "It Takes Two" movie and how the whole audience was made out of twins. I then believed you need to have a twin to go see the movie.
I used to believe that the people in the movie theater knew if your phone was on or not, and the "please silence your cell-phones" message would not go off until everyone did what they were told.
I always wondered how James Bond could tell his real name to everyone and why the bad guys never recognized him from the movies. Maybe they just didnt know the movies...
I used to beleive that in Hollywood, the actors wern't actually kissing, they were just mouthing the air. This is thanks to my dad telling me that they made the male actor eat garlic before shooting a scene so that the woman would want to "kiss" the air and not the man.
When I heard of the movie Godzilla 1985 as a kid I thought it meant there had been 1984 Godzilla movies before it!
I used to think that after watching a movie in a theatre, the music during the end credits was there for you to dance to. Needless to say I was the only one who ever stood in front of the entire theatre and danced.
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....
When I was a child, I thought that every family was somehow allocated a letter of the alphabet, and it was to be used when going to the cinema. So I thought our allocated letter was "u" and therefore we were only allowed to go to the cinema when the film listed had a "U" after it!
