Why is money transferred a dollar at a time in movies?

Just got thru watching Firewall with Harrison Ford and started wondering why in movies, money is always transferred dollar by dollar. It’s like a countdown-slot machine. Whenever I’ve done a transfer, I enter the entire amount and..click…it’s gone. I suppose that most viewers suspend the absurdity of the time lag. I can see when you are transferring files to a USB drive or something, but not dollars. Kinda stupid if you think about it.
