We're all so very sick of movie characters saying "I can explain!" and then not explaining a thing.

We're all so very tired of movie villains killing everyone with ease but then stopping to give an impassioned speech to our hero instead of killing them immediately.

And holy crap, we're all so very tired of the car that doesn't start in horror movies! LIKE WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?

These clichés––and more––inspired Redditor OG_Builds, who asked the online community, "What movie cliché do you hate the most?"


"When the protagonist..."

When the protagonist and love interest are about to kiss and then something interrupts, like one of them getting a phone call.

*loud internal screaming*

Giphy

The protagonist whose spent the entire movie mowing down mooks and goons left and right, who finally gets the upper hand on the truly evil overlord of the whole operation, and then pulls this BS:

"No, I can't kill you. Because that would make me as bad as you."

"One character has something important..."

One character has something important to tell another character but they don't want to listen and they leave which creates confusion and chaos making the movie way longer than it should be if the other person just would've shut up and listened.

"Bad guys..."

Bad guys with machine guns rarely hit anyone, but a good guy with a handgun can make impossible shots.

"I'm in!"

*mashing the keyboard at insane speed for ten seconds* "I'm in!"

"It's like we all..."

Hitting someone on the head knocks them out for a few minutes, rather than causing concussion, brain damage, internal or external bleeding, or just severe pain. It's like we all have a big snooze button on the back of our heads.

"Not only..."

Prosecutors introducing "surprise" evidence or surprise witnesses during the trial.

Not only will it be a mistrial, but you will likely lose your law license if you try to pull that crap in real life.

"The regular cop..."

The regular cop that can also fly helicopters and other crazy sh!t that would combine for 120 years of world class training if all done properly.

EggsAndBeerKegs

"Propping up..."

Propping up a tiny wooden table and using it as a shield against gun fire.

CryingIsForTheWeak

"The disabled character..."

The disabled character who literally just exists to inspire the protagonist to do something.

When you go on a job interview, the last thing you probably never think about is asking a question.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?

As much as we'd like to assume spirits, ghosts, and paranormal happenings are relegated to movies and books, plenty of real-life stories abound.
