Being love-struck: cool. Being car-struck: not so cool. In the otherwise forgettable fantasy romance Meet Joe Black, Brad Pitt plays a gent who absentmindedly strolls out into traffic while longingly looking back for the anonymous woman he just met and instantly connected with at a coffee shop. Finding she’s disappeared, he snaps back to reality just in time to avoid a speeding car—and, we might add, to see the bright red “Don’t Walk” sign—before getting hit by not one but two vehicles. That, friends, is why you should always look both ways.
