What are some things that are common in movies but NEVER EVER actually happen in real life?

A lot of bad guys in American movies also tend to speak in British accents.
The lead actors are almost always people with model good looks, a set of "I only work out 6 hours, everyday" washboard abs. In other words, they set a realistic standard for everyone to live by. ;-)
