The most retarded one is the "falling onto pillows laughing and gasping after 'sex'" and then saying something like "that was amazing!" Try that with your girlfriend, it's some hilarious shit.

Do you expect me to talk?
NO Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

When a white man goes to a culture, which is being attacked in some way by the white man, and ends up being the savior of that culture - implying that a person from the culture itself is incapable of rising up and defeating the white man himself.

Black people saying "Damn" Car chases in general...yawn Bad guy talking too long before shooting the protagonist Full houses and royal flushes in tense poker scenes Having boring missionary sex slowly before cumming

people being short of oxygen in a submarine or spaceship. you never ever ever ever die because there is not enough oxygen left, you die 10 times earlier because carbon dioxide level has risen ..

this thread can become endless because Hollywood is so goddam horribly formulaic... hero fighting, running, jumping after getting shot repeatedly. rifle bullets cause so much damage that if you take one in the torso/leg you're immediately out for weeks even if it doesn't kill you the villain isn't dead, you motherfuckers. he's just waiting until you let your guard down or turn your backs the stupid inspirational speech before the climactic scene. last seen in 2012 where it was so infuriating it ruined the whole movie for me if there is a dog in the movie, it ALWAYS survives. even during the end of the world someone in the party always needs to nobly give his life to save the world/the mission. it's usually the character who's the most annoying or the one who keeps questioning authority

I remember reading a bunch of ones a long while back. Here's some I remember (and some of my own).

- Having a job of any kind will make a father forget his 5 year old son's birthday

- Cops are usually paired up with people of the opposite temperament

- Most cops will be gun down tragically when they only have 2 days left for retirement

- All bombs have red electronic displays so you know exactly when they will go off

- A hero can be shot at, stabbed, fall from a building and survive a fire with out so much as breaking a sweat, but will wince when a woman applies disinfectant to his wounds

- Door locks can easily be opened with the help of a credit card. Unless someone is trapped behind them. At which point you better try kicking the door down

- Television characters who work in an office will be set up with their boss's daughter on a date. Character will spend rest of the episode trying to get out of it. By the end of the episode character finds out boss's daughter is super hot. And was set up with one of the guys in the mail room instead

- Fire extinguishers rarely work

- In high school, the athletes always wear their team jackets. No matter what the situation. They're also usually total jerks

-High school loners are usually really pretty. They're just wearing glasses. Their best friends are guys who are secretly in love with them

- Weddings often have about a hundred guests in attendance. In reality, it's usually about 20 or 30.

Esp. if they are supposedly a "hacker".

Added to this is when someone hacks/enters a system and equations and random nonsensical images fly towards the individual like they just went into nerd hyperspace.

i remember roger ebert's site has a full-on database of these types of cliches.


the one i dont really get is when the main character cop gets pulled off the assignment , placing him on a leave of absence fully paid, but he gets all angry about it.

i would be like , "shit ya! pay me bitches!" and then leave.
the movie would end right there though.

Heh. Similarly, disguises can be as simple as a pair of glasses or dressing as the opposite sex - effectively fooling everyone.

Reminds me of Much Ado About Nothing.
