Life is Too Short, Be Happy
Whether it be a full bowl of popcorn sitting on the table or a fully intact birthday cake, untouched food in TV shows and movies is for some reason eye-catching and can be very bothersome. Obviously what characters eat on screen shouldn’t be the main focus point but sometimes it can be hard to ignore…especially when the food looks so good. The following examples are the scenes that are the most daunting and frankly the toughest to watch.
Remember when Kevin overheard The Wet Bandits (Harry and Marv) say they were going to break into the McCallister’s house at 9:00pm? And then Kevin made dinner about 5 minutes before their anticipated arrival and therefore didn’t get to take a single bite of his microwavable mac & cheese or even touch his cold glass of milk? I remember that too. I think about it every day.

We all wish we could have someone as amazing as the Parker’s housekeeper Chessy to whip up chocolate chip pancakes and other classic breakfast items for us before we start our day, and lucky for Lindsay Lohan’s character Annie (disguised as Hallie), she does. However, she clearly doesn’t take advantage of this because just moments after Chessy sets down the final plate to her 4-course meal, “Hallie” takes ONE bite of toast and runs out the door. She doesn’t even grab a handful of bacon for the road.
This iconic breakfast scene from 1985 is hands-down the most entertaining to watch of the examples so far but is also the most difficult to watch. Pee-Wee Herman uses a Rube Goldberg-esque contraption to build his breakfast that consists of toast, eggs, bacon, pancakes, fruit, and cereal. After buttering his toast (and not eating it), Pee-Wee eats about six pieces of his Mr. T cereal and uses a napkin to dab his mouth before heading out for the day. His adorable dog Speck seemed to be amused though so I think it was worth it in the long run.
This list would not be complete without mentioning Gossip Girl – the CW show that was known for its fashion and elaborate family breakfasts. The tables were always filled with classy breakfast items such as croissants, Bloody Mary’s, and crêpes but of course, they were hardly ever touched. I think they ate a strawberry every now and then.
If you’re one of the lucky few who has never taken notice of these scenes where the food is barely acknowledged, I truly hope I haven’t ruined television for you and you’ll be able to continue to ignore the forgotten food on the big screen.
