Name that cliché !

Ahh the good old script filler: the cliché. Let's see how many we can name

A few to start off:


A dumpster/truck reverses out an alley just as the car chase approaches.

The goodie injures the main baddie then walks away allowing the baddie time to pull a concealed weapon and then get shot by a support actor at the last minute.

A bomb is diffused with a few seconds left on the clock.

A goodie is shot but survives due to book/flask/medal in pocket or bulletproof vest we didn't know they were wearing.

Baddie disarms goodie after a big fight, points gun at head and clicks on an empty chamber.

At the end of a huge slaughter/explosion the goodies wander through all the police with a coat around their shoulders laughing and go for a cup of coffee/romance.

Main baddie/monster is knocked out/wounded by goodie who decides to run off instead of finishing the job and thus ends up being killed later.

Goodie suffers horrible death then wakes from dream sweating.


Keep 'em coming!

Martial artist gets his ass kicked only to remember whilst on the ground girl/brother - usually brother, getting either raped or killed which unlocks an infinite amount of rage/skill and proceeds to beat the crap out of opponent.

Yes mr Van Damme, i'm looking at you.

Near the start of the movie, one man (neither goodie or baddie just 'other') is mean to/angry with/ a defenceless woman or is just plain arrogant. Later that man will die while the woman will live, most likely watching the man die.

Someone near to retirement, dies.

How could I forget:
Goodie gets told off by boss or suspended from the force only to then save the day.

While out saving the day, goodie is held at gunpoint by baddie in the backseat of the car. Goodie buckles seatbelt and drives straight at a wall, sending baddie through the windscreen.

Goodie proceeds to crack safety one liner before driving off without even a hint of whiplash.

Man: "I never said blah blah blah"

Scorned woman "You didn't have to"

--------------------------------------

Arsey boss/badguy "Officers, take him away"

sidekick cop who just found his balls "Actually, take Mr Badguy away"

Arsey boss/badguy "You can't do this to me...I'll have your job for this.."

sidekick cop turns and smiles and the goodguy.

--------------------------------------

Any film starring a token black guy, e.g. Final Destination 3, will feature a scene where he utters the line "Now that's what I'm talking about!"

--------------------------------------


Women are in fact physically stronger than men, especially ones who are psychotic. Look at any horror movie made in the last six years for evidence.

Time bombs always tick with an audible beep when you look at them.

Someone is in a building that is going to be blown up and they get out just in time before it goes up.

Woman is in bedroom with another guy with her arms around him when the door opens and her husband walks in (or the other way around); the guilty party breaks free of the cuddle and stammers "It is not what you think!"

Don't forget the Stephen Hawkins style "You Have Mail" that accompanies the pointless graphic.

If there's a cop in a film he can't love anymore due to being burned to many times. Or his wife died.

Any man reduced to wearing a vest and trousers is instantly invincible and will never lose in the end.

Family dog follows his nose in woodland and promptly disappears.....a few hours later the frantically searching little girl finds him all chewed up while something nasty is watching in the background.
