Worst Movie Cliches


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21The quick dodging unemotional hero
22The strong damsel in distress
23"And they lived happily ever after"
24The goofy villain
25The prophecy calls upon a nobody to keep this movie's plot going
26Villain points gun at hero but doesn't shoot
27Villain uses expensive simulations to show off plan
28The car won't start

Why won't the car start THE KEY IS IN THE KEY SLOT START!

Wouldn't it just be easier to run. - egnomac

Maybe it's because it's OUT OF GAS?

29Movie ends with the main character and love interest kissing
30The overbearing, religious parent

Watch Bubble Boy and you'll see what I'm talking about.

31Love just because

Glad I just brought this up to #28

32Relying too much on CGI

It used to be awesome back in the days of Jurassic Park but somehow the advancement in technology has resulted in CGI looking LESS realistic. Not to mention there are times when a practical effect would work just as well if not better. Example: Those Raptor heads in Jurassic World (when they're in restraints and two characters are talking about them) didn't need to be CGI. They could easily have used animatronics in that scene and it would have been more believable.

34Be careful...
35The great speech
36Everyone but the hero and love interest die

That's so dumb. It's not like it makes a difference to everyone else, dead or alive. It was new and acceptable when it happened in things like Shakespeare, but Titanic, so what?!

37Celebrities popping out of nowhere
38The sparkling teeth
39Main character survives
40Everyone magically survives
