    Not quite an idiom, but you could say, "it requires a willing suspension of disbelief." The phrase "suspension of disbelief" is often used when talking about how people accept outlandish things while watching a movie in order to be entertained. Applying it to a real-world situation means that you think that the situation in question is no more realistic than a movie. Commented Dec 30, 2018 at 1:08
