#1.)  Someone Mysteriously Disappears from a Street Corner When a Big Bus Drives By. Obviously that never happens in real life . . . unless the bus stopped, sat there for 30 seconds, and picked them up.

#2.)  Hearing a Dial Tone When Someone Hangs Up on You. In real life, the line just goes silent.  But in the movies, they always add a dial tone so the audience knows what's happening.

#3.)  Hackers Only Need a Few Seconds to Hack Into a Computer System. In reality, it's not a one-step process at all.  And even the best hackers might need hours or even MONTHS to hack into a heavily encrypted system.

#4.)  Instant DNA Results. When police order DNA tests in the movies, they usually get the results a few days later, or even sooner.  But in reality, most police departments have a backlog, and it takes months.

#5.)  Making a Mad Dash to the Airport to Stop Someone You Love From Leaving. Maybe it actually DID happen . . . 20 years ago.  But in 2011 it makes no sense, because everyone has a cell phone.
