7 Happy Movie Endings That Are Totally Ruined By Science

Childhood officially ruined.


It's that time again, time to gleefullypick holes in well-loved classics, just because I can.

We all know that our favourite films probably aren't particularly scientifically accurate - as somebody who loves science, that would make them face-clawingly dull.

We also all know that everybody loves a happy ending, so it's probably a good thing that filmmakers aren't exactly fastidious in their scientific accuracy. The world is a cruel, cruel place and, had the harsh realities of life been included in some of your favourite classics, we'd have a generation of very scarred and disturbed children on our hands.

So, ready to find out just how dark and savagethe real world is? Let's start with The Lion King shall we?
