People Share Which Common Movie Clichés They Can't Stand

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.

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.

There is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
