Sometimes we learn more from movies than from reality. There have been circumstances where scenes from movies have been taken into consideration to make actual life decisions.

One way that we perceive emotion in a film is through our senses, which says that it’s a good idea to mimic the visual input that we’re seeing. So, if you walk up to somebody and they smile at you, you automatically smile back. In the same manner, what we observe in a film, we tend to follow in our lives.

Certain movies have scenes about savings and financial advice, that are unbelievable.
