In the German film 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door', there is a scene where one of the characters looks at the side-view mirror of the car he's sitting in, and we get a shot of the mirror and the caption 'Objects in mirror are closer than they appear'.

Do you think this could be of some significance to the movie? I mean, surely this scene can't have been just placed there at random. What, in your opinion, is the meaning of this?

It's standard in the US, apparently - no, I'm not joking, they really do have to put a warning on convex driving mirrors.

I first noticed it in the 'driving away from the T Rex' scene in Jurassic Park.

For years I just thought it was a 'joke', included by the movie makers to increase the tension in that scene.

They even parodied it in Toy Story...
