If you had some time off over the Christmas break, chances are you spent a good chunk of your time lounging around watching movies.
But either way, there’s no doubt you were subject to countless ridiculous movie cliches.
Just last week, Twitter user Rory Turnbull pointed out an oh-so-typical movie cliche about teachers and professors.
“Hello, I’m a professor in a movie, I only reach the main point of my lecture right as class is ending. Then I yell at students about the reading/homework as they leave,” he wrote.

Yep, we’ve never read anything so true before.
Rory’s hilarious tweet, which has now received over 185,000 likes, sparked a hilarious conversation about cliches in movies that make zero sense in real life, especially when it comes to professions.
From freelance writers who somehow manage to live in huge apartments in New York City to the IT guy who can hack into any system by typing random keys into the keyboard, here’s some of the most ridiculous movie cliches that would never happen in real life.
Hello. I’m Senior Partner in a law firm. I wear designer white suits, impossible high heels and have a massive corner office with a drinks cabinet as well as my own chauffeur and 2 PAs. I don’t actually do any work but do stare out of the window a lot.
