When I was little, I was very afraid of the movie E.T.-Extra Terrestrial. I thought that if I flushed the toilet at night, if I had woken up to use the restroom during the night, then E.T. would pop out of the toilet and eat my butt. I had to call my mom to flush the toilet for me at night!

There's a scene in the movie called The Incredibles, where the main character stamps the word "denied" on a piece of paper and an old lady says, "You're denying my claim?!".

Well, when I first saw the movie, I thought she was saying, "You're denying my *plane*?!" and wondered how on Earth someone could deny a plane.

My mother used to tell me that when people French-kissed in movies they were actually not really kissing, as with their heads at an angle to each other their lips did not touch (somehow that meant it didn't count as a 'real' kiss).

I'm still inclined to believe that she believed it, too. And still does.

I used to beleive.....

that going to the movies made it nightime. When we'd go in it was daytime and when we would comeout it would be night time. The first time we left a matinee I was truly dismayed.

I also used to beleive that when you turned the TV off, the next time you turned it on the show would start up again where it left off....

When I was five I thought that when you watched a movie the actors and actresses knew that I wanted to watch the movie so they started acting it out. Then I learned the magic of recording.

When I was little, only 3 or 4, like most infants, I didn't understand movies too well, or at least, what the characters were saying. So for years I seriously beleived that the oompah-loompas in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory were serial killers or something, and they were always on the other side of the Chocolate River, so you couldn't get to them. I thought that they would set up booby traps for the people's kids, and then kidnap the parents and kill them or something, and the parts that involved being in the same room with a lot of oompah-loompahs was that they were in an oompah-loompah jail touring it. They would mock the rest of the group after they kidnapped someone with scary little songs and dances, so up until I was, like, 7, I was terrified of the little buggers, and avoided the movie. Then I saw the movie and understood the words and all was better.

I actually thought that the Shark in the Jaws films was MEANT to be a mechanical one and that maybe someone was controlling it all along.

My father was watching Camelot one evening (yes...the musical with Robert Goulet and Richard Harris). There is one scene when King Arthur is furious with his wife because she is being so unkind and unwelcoming to Sir Lancelot. The character of King Arthur has a song that he sings about it. At the beginning of the song, he is quite loud and slams a door or two. When I asked my dad why, he told me that it was because King Arthur drank some cola at dinner and the caffeine was keeping him up. He was unhappy and upset because he couldn't sleep.

I am ashamed to admit how many years I believed *that* one....

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 I was about 5 or so, I assumed R-rated movies were the same as G-rated ones. I wondered why my parents were so against letting me see an R-rated movie.

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!!"

I use to believe that when a movie stated "5 years later" it meant they waited 5 years to continue filming.
