22 Things Movies Make Look Really Easy That Are Actually Really Difficult to Do in Real Life

Hey, we can learn to deal with certain artistic liberties when it comes to the world of making movies. We know that Hugh Jackman isn't about to run up to us in the middle of the street and profess his undying love using a flash mob and skywriting. We understand the difference between real life and the silver screen.

But what Hollywood doesn't seem to get is that a lot every day, normal stuff they have their characters do are actually incredibly hard, and it's border lining on ridiculous to watch. Reddit users listed the most egregious offenses of movies making difficult things look super easy, so take notice Michael Bay:

1. Digging Holes

2. Swimming Ridiculous Distances Underwater

Don't worry, I can fully support your weight with one hand, while also supporting both of us and keeping a strong grip to the clay/dirt with my other.'
