With modern automobiles, they virtually never fail to start right up no matter how hot or how cold the weather might be. My car started every single time for 3 1/2 years until it didn't, and that's because the battery went bad. I replaced it, and it has started every single time over the last year.

So, why then, when terrified people are fleeing someone or something totally horrid, do the cars in Hollywood movies invariably FAIL to start?! That is so old, so hackneyed, and so outdated, that it makes one wonder why it is still used in any movie at all.
