37 Incredibly Distracting Things Hollywood Won't Stop Doing

Before watching a show or movie, it's natural for us to suspend our disbelief. The creators know this and work painstakingly hard to make sure we stay in that state -- making sure even the smallest of details don't take us out of the show's reality.

Which sucks, because sometimes all it takes is a minute for that suspension to be inadvertently shattered.

(Shout out to squawkmookie for the contest suggestion. We're sorry so many movies have been ruined for you.)
