Can you imagine how different the plot lines of some of your favorite movies would have been if the characters had cell phones? Some movies would have been over in a matter of 5 minutes, and others would have had a completely different ending. Communication can save a lot of heartache and trouble. Let’s take a look at a few classic movies that would have been completely different with cell phones.
It’s 11:58pm. “Oh no! I have to go!” Cinderella says frantically. “Wait, let me get your number!” Prince Charming says. “Oh, good idea,” Cinderella says while putting her number in the prince’s phone. Then she sprints off right before her carriage turns into a pumpkin.
The Next Day
*ding ding* Texts
Prince: Hey you ran off pretty quickly last night. Did you make it home okay?
Cinderella: Hey sorry, I had to be home by 12am. You know how it is. Did I leave my shoe on the steps?
Prince: Yeah I found it. It’s here at the castle. By the way, Marry Me?
Cinderella: K, sounds good.
And they lived happily ever after. The End.
Wizard of Oz
I’d say that Dorothy could have called or texted her family to tell them that she was home and needed to be let into the storm cellar, but the tornado probably would have knocked down the power line so no service would have been available. Fast forward to when Dorothy wakes up in Oz, her conversation with Glinda would have gone a lot differently.
Dorothy: Hey Glinda, I’ve been walking on this yellow brick road for forever and this witch is really starting to freak me out. I’ve made some friends and all, but I just want to get home. Is there an easier way?
Glinda: Oh yeah, just click your heels together 3 times and say, “there’s no place like home.” My bad, totally forgot.
Dorothy: Seriously? That’s all I had to do this entire time?
Glinda: Yeah, sorry. Blonde moment.
Dorothy goes home.
Romeo and Juliet
Romeo gets exiled and sends Juliet a text.
Romeo: Hey I’ve been exiled from Verona. I’ll come back to get you in a few days and we’ll run away together. Sound good?
Juliet: My parents are trying to force me to marry Paris. Friar Lawrence is going to give me a potion to make it appear that I’m dead, but I’ll just be in a really deep sleep. When you come back for me I’ll probably still be out of it, so don’t be alarmed or do anything drastic.
Romeo: Oh wow, can you imagine what would have happened if I thought you were really dead?
Juliet: I know, right?
Romeo: Alright, I’ll see you soon, babe. Sleep tight.
Juliet: Cool, see you soon.
Three days later they run away together and live happily ever after. The End.
