6 Life Lessons Hollywood Repeatedly Tries To Teach You

Movies are usually given credit for the movie’s plot or the director/cast or the value of the story itself. Rarely, do we commend a movie for the lessons learned.
To me every film no matter what it is about holds a potential wealth of thinking. There are some life lessons that Hollywood repeatedly tries to throw at you. Here are a few, I have noticed.

1. Every Experience (Good And Bad) Contributes To Who You Are & What You Know

As seen in Slumdog Millionaire, Abandon, Harry Potter

So true! I never thought about it this way before, but you're so right about these lessons (and I love the examples you've given). I'm definitely going to give this some thought and let you know if I come up with any new ideas...

I have a slightly different take.

I've noticed that, unless it's the lead, most characters will never change their outlook or mode of behavior. Also, if the movie or TV show has a certain negative theme found in shows such as "Everybody Hates Chris" or "Married with Children" you can always bank on anything that at first seems good will always end up being a major problem.

I used to root for people on TV shows until I realized that they would never get out of their overall predicaments. But that's just in the world of entertainment - not in reality.
