I Can't Come In

I've seen several movies recently with scenes in which a character is in a hotel room, someone knocks on the door, and the person inside says, "Come in."

Apparently no one in the movie industry ever stays in actual hotels, because if they did, they'd know that the door couldn't be opened from the outside without a key or keycard. Anyone who's ever run down the hall to fill the ice bucket, only to return and find themselves unable to re-enter the room would know this.

I understand literary license, but that sort of inattention to detail bugs me.
