7 Unrealistic Goals We Got From Movies
by Zhenya NikolovaWhat better way to get the festive feeling than having a night in with hot chocolate, marshmallows and a Home Alone marathon. Yet, as much as we love a good old Christmas movie, you can’t deny they've given us just a few false expectations. From magical weather to making us think we'd find our very own Graham from The Holiday, here are some of the most unrealistic goals set by our fave festive films...1. Love Actually Right, where do we begin? This movie is EVERYTHING. Let’s just take minute to appreciate the cast – Hugh Grant, Colin Firth, Andrew Lincoln, Keira Knightly and (we're actually tearing up now) Alan Rickman. Every second of this film is goals! If you said you didn’t dream of getting that ‘to me you are perfect’ message on Christmas Eve, you would be the biggest liar EVER. And if you never wished Hugh Grant was the real prime minister of the United Kingdom then…well there isn’t such an option. 2. The Holiday Nobody, I repeat, nobody can pull off glasses better than Jude Law- he is LOVELY! But Jude's not the only character in the film making our hearts melt. Arthur is too adorable. How many times have you tried to make friends with your elderly neighbour since you’ve watched The Holiday but it always turns out that neighbour is actually a grumpy man who doesn’t even say MORNING back? 3. Home Alone Your mum tells you that the WHOLE family is getting together this year- from your grandparents to your second cousin’s boyfriend’s sister. Naturally, you start getting excited- you know how hard it is to get everyone together at this time of year. Yet while you hope for a big family trip to Paris, your grandma let's slip this reunion is just gonna be in her living room. Great. 4. Home Alone 2 Miracles have been known to happen over Christmas and this year you've been hoping Mum & Dad will surprise you with your dream Xmas vacay to New York city. Sadly, this year it’s just York. 5. The Santa Clause We may be too old, but we still like to think Santa is real- even if we know it's dad. And this is exactly what happened in Santa Clause but then you look at your dad over Christmas and he doesn’t even have white beard so you just accept the fact that Santa isn’t even your dad- it’s your mum. Do dads' even know how to do Christmas shopping? 6. Elf We couldn't think of a more festive, funny and unrealistic film than Elf. Just admit it, you’ve considered eating spaghetti mixed in maple syrup and tons of chocolate and sweets?7. Bridget Jones Drinking wine on your coach , ALL BY YOURSELF, singing to Celine and eating Ben and Jerry’s seems so appealing and exciting doesn’t it? But the reality is that Mr. Darcy isn’t a successful lawyer who likes you just the way you are, he still lives in his mum's spare room and is doing a Masters. GIF source: Giphy
Life Lessons We Learnt From The Princess Diaries
Princess Diaries 3 has been confirmed and we're just a little bit excited. Whilst we heart our traditional Disney princesses, Mia wore the ultimate crown for her sassy nature, witty one liners and all round #lifegoals, so to celebrate this royal announcement, here's life lessons we learnt from the film. Accept Yourself For Who You AreMia didn't obsess over contouring or extensions, she worked with 'what she got' and embraced natural. What You Give Power To Can Control YouSure, so technically it was Eleanor Roosevelt who said this, but nonetheless it's true. Have A Goal In LifeOkay, so Mia's may have been a little bit warped at the beginning, but at least she was committed. Always Have A Good Excuse HandyAlthough we don't quite see this having the same effect if we rock up 20 minutes late to work... Hold Out For The OneYou'll know when you meet him. Dance Like No-One's WatchingLiteral YOLO. Recognise The Good People In Your LifeAnd not when it's too late. Wake up and realise when they're standing in front of you. Sometimes literally. Don't Take Any Sh** From AnyoneCrown or no crown, mama didn't raise no fool. Stand Up For YourselfAnd deliver it as sassily as Amelia Mignonette Grimaldi Thermopolis Renaldo, PRINCESS Of Genovia. Sure we may not be royalty, but that doesn't stop us delivering cracking one liners. Gif Source: Giphy
