If screenwriters write what they know, then they all must have the luxury of time to eat a full breakfast buffet every morning. Film characters have no problem sitting down to a table of eggs, toast, pancakes and orange juice on a regular Tuesday morning, while real-life moviegoers settle for a muesli bar to-go. But don’t expect them to eat the whole spread. It doesn’t matter if they eat at home or at a restaurant; no one finishes an entire meal in the movies. At best, they get a few bites in before being called away to some emergency. Perhaps industry execs think audiences would be bored watching characters eat a full meal like normal people. But I want to see Ryan Reynolds finishing off a plate of spaghetti, dang it!
