13 Films and TV Shows That Gave Us Unrealistic Expectations Of America
1. High School Musical
People just don't randomly burst out in song in high school. Also, no public high school looks like this.
2. Home Alone
Early 90s NYC wasn't a great place to be. Also keeping a tarantula at home is a terrible idea.
3. Desperate Housewives
Unrealistic house goals.
4. Full House
No one can afford to live in San Fran, in such prime location, on a minimum salary. No one.
5. Mean Girls
High school is bad, but it's definitely not this bad.
6. Pitch Perfect
And no university is as magical as the home of the Barden Bellas. There's a lot more crying, being poor, and getting drunk.
7. The O.C.
SO. MUCH. DRAMA.
8. American Pie
Yes, teenagers shag, but not *that* much.
Just… Everything about it.
10. Sex And The City
NYC is only this glamorous when you have money. And most Americans don’t.
Renting an apartment in Manhattan on basic salary is impossible. Sorry to burst your bubble.
12. Veronica Mars
She’d be kicked out of school quicker than she could say “private eye,” trust us.
13. House MD
A visit to House’s team of specialists would most likely leave most people in debt for the rest of their lives. So yeah, you’re cured, but also good luck paying for that treatment, son.
