Keep Your Eyes on the Road

I hate the scenes in movies that take place in a moving vehicle. I always pay special attention to the driver and how long and how often he is NOT looking at the road. I mean, when I'm driving, I try to pretend I'm in a movie and see how long I can look at the passenger in the car while they tell a story or while I talk - without fearing a crash, and trust me - it's not that long of a time.

So please, if you're an actor and you're reading this - make sure to make the scene REAL by looking at the road. And, if you're a director, my tip would be to pull a Tropic Thunder and actually film these scenes on the road.

Thoughts?
