Grand gestures always go well in movies, but we forget that that’s because they are movies. The actors don’t get any say in how they think any given scenario would actually go down. Once everybody is all done up in hair and makeup, and fully geared up with a microphone wire attached to their butt, do you think they are allowed to stop the filming and say, “Wait a minute. This would never happen?” Nuh-uh. They are being paid to play out that writer’s fantasy. But that’s just what it is—fantasy. And it’s certainly fiction. If you think about most grand gestures you see in movies and ask yourself how you would really feel if a guy made one for you, you might realize, “That would not go well.” Here are movie grand gestures that are actually awkward in real life.
