Things that never happen in films

Has anyone ever lost a contact lense in a film?

Or snagged their jumper on a door handle?

Cowboy treads in horse shit.

The first thing they teach at cowboy school: don't step on horse shit.

You'd have thought they'd do cow shit first.

OK - cowboy does some actual cattle work.

The phone starts ringing while someone is talking.

Nobody exchanges proper goodbyes at the end of calls.

Cowboys like to slake their thirsts in the local saloon -- there seem to be saloons everywhere but you never see a brewery or distillery, or for that matter a delivery dray.

Taxis materialise the nanosecond a character who needs one puts their hand up.

DesEsseintes - 30 Jul 2021 07:37:27 (#9 of 40)

Yeah. There's not much waiting for buses and trains either.

Tadagee - 30 Jul 2021 07:42:06 (#10 of 40)

Oh I got this thread the wrong way round. I should have said noone ever has to wave their arm desperately in the air jumping up and down to get a taxi's attention moments after delivering a devasting departing bon mot.

Peter Noone?

Tadagee - 30 Jul 2021 07:51:11 (#12 of 40)

That's the chap. Always bloody jumping up and down to get taxis.

HouseOfLametta - 30 Jul 2021 07:55:33 (#13 of 40)

He always was into something good.

There are plenty of westerns that feature people doing stuff with cattle. The most acclaimed would probably be Red River.

STAAAAAAAAAAM-PEEEEEEDE!!!!

#9: There's plenty of time to have meaningful conversations at bus stops. It's just that the busses always arrive when they've run their course.

Tea and coffee never given a tentative sip and found to be way too hot just now.

enidcoleslaw - 30 Jul 2021 08:19:48 (#18 of 40)

There are loads of films where people try to get taxis and fail. After Hours and Planes, Trains & Automobiles, to name two off the top of my head.

enidcoleslaw - 30 Jul 2021 08:21:33 (#19 of 40)

I can also think of loads of films where people are waiting for buses and trains... Perhaps I'm watching the wrong kind of films

Tadagee - 30 Jul 2021 08:43:20 (#20 of 40)

Yeah, taxi fails might be a device in comedies, but doubt you'd find Jason Bourne waving frantically in desperate frustration.
