13 Lies We Believe (Because Of Movies)

We’ll admit it, we’re pretty gullible. If a lie is delivered by a movie?? Well, count us in. We've all been there, watching a movie and believing something simply because the silver screen told us so. Sometimes it's something small, like the belief that chocolate will make you break out or that you need to wait an hour after eating before swimming. But sometimes, the lies are bigger, and they can have serious consequences. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the more damaging falsehoods we've picked up from movies over the years and ask why we're so quick to believe them. Spoiler alert: Hollywood is to blame!

Movies can be a great way to escape the reality of our lives for a couple of hours. We can laugh, cry, and feel all kinds of emotions that we don't usually experience. However, sometimes movies can also affect our beliefs in ways that we don't notice.
