reel life

Fellow movie you ever notice in a ton of movies...both old and new...whenever there's a scene where coffee, tea, or a delicious dinner is served or offered, that only one or two sips are taken, or only a couple bites are taken and it's never finished?
And a lot of times it's never touched at all. You know, the scene where the police have the fork halted at their mouths and the radio cracks loudly about the bank robbery in progress across the street.

And while I'm at it...what about those dusty, filthy, shaggy, vagabonds with clean, white, straight teeth?

Oh, I'll be ok.

Yes, yes and yes!!!! That unnerves me every time!!!! And I always have to point it out to whomever might be watching it with me. A glorious meal all laid out and one or possibly two bites. Aaaak...I can't stand it!

And I thought I was the only one who noticed...

ARGH! We go on about it in my family all the time! My dad especially - a good meal is started and then something interrupts and all that lovely food is left to get cool or get thrown away. Of course, it must be a continuity nightmare. But there are many such incongruities in film. Grrrr.
