Movies don't just offer an escape from life, they also offer the wisdom to get through it.

The hashtag #AdviceFromMovieCharacters has been trending on Twitter, and any movie buff will say it's for good reason. Included in the roundup are some classics, ranging from the agitated detention proctor in The Breakfast Club to Keanu Reeves' heroic cop in Speed (and Reeves shows up in this collection again -- how excellent!), that remind us of some simple and hard truths to make our existences smoother.

So, yeah, you may think you're watching a movie to escape from reality for a few hours, but if you look a little closer, you might find there are more lessons to be learned than any professor could hope to offer.

Long live screenwriters!
