Post-Steam Pipe Explosion overheard in New York

It's Important to Have a Cause

Dude: It was just so scary to overhear people talking on their cell phones saying all those things you associate with disaster.

Chick: Yeah.

Male passerby on cell: The problem with so many women is just that they don't have the right amount of support! I know more women who live miserably because they are wearing the wrong cup size! Just get measured!

Reality w/in a movie does not include the following...

I've always found it a curious conceit that within a world of a movie, the actors in them do not exist.

For example, in the world of the movie "Jerry Maguire," there is no actor Tom Cruise, or at least, not with the grin and smiling face we know of as Tom Cruise. Of course there can't be, our Tom Cruise is busy being Jerry Maguire.

Or in the world of "The Bourne Ultimatum," no actor known as Matt Damon exists. Or if he does, no one notes his remarkable similarity to Jason Bourne.

From what I understand, Ocean's 12 did something weird through this by doing some sort of weird thing where they noted that Tess looks like Julia Roberts. Making this conceit that obvious just makes me cringe.
