Do you mean "cook"?
Great topic and post. Well done!

I think it clearly depends on the movie itself but certainly there's a tread of choosing pretty actors/actress who show a behavior not so common to the average real life person.
Indie movies have a tendency of showing more regular people than the ones who appear on blockbusters or romances. I don't know if the "american way of life" is still as forced into movies as it was decades ago, but there's still a clear shock of reality between the real world and that Hollywood thing.
I personally see the movies as pure entertainment so I enjoy exaggerated characters like the ones shown on Tarantino movies. Sometimes there's a reason for these not-so-real guys. Sometimes there's not (and unfortunately I think that's the majority of cases, like you observed). And sometimes when there's a good director involved there's place for quite usual people, what is evoked on this scene on Spike Jonze's Adaptation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JHVqxD8PNq8
Anyway documentaries usually show a much more real America than Hollywood does.
