In bar-room brawls, someone gets hit over the head with a chair, and the chair breaks into a million pieces. The last time I got hit on the head with a chair, my head split open but the chair stayed completely intact!

They are always wooden chairs too, never plastic or metal.

...when someone wakes up from a nightmare, they sit up in bed while screaming. Has that ever happened to anyone? When I wake up from a nightmare, I pretty much just open my eyes.

...someone looks in the bathroom mirror, opens it to get some pills or something, closes it and then there's a ghostly appearance in the mirror (but when he turns around, it isn't there).

No matter how passionate, urgent and thrashing the sex was last night, the two participants will have perfect hair/faces (no pufffy eyes, ect.) the next day, no bad breath (so they can start making out again the instant they wake up) and never have to run to the bathroom for a morning pee. The recent Bridesmaids poked a hole in this cliche by having Kristen Wiig get up before John Hamm for the sole purpose of fixing up her hair and face before sliding back into bed. big grin

Since the late 60's, a obsession in comic form to have men get in the groin, one way or another, the skit has been done to death and is really a cheap gag, it is intersting how such an act on a woman would be consider crude and not funny at all, but is somehow funny with males. Just like cable for some reason the past 2 decades can show male hardcore frontal nudity, but it is still a no-no for females.

The best example of that I can think of is Total Recall, Arnie spends the whole film being kicked in the nuts!

As for the other thing, that could be womens revenge. From the 60's on, women were always taking their kit off in films, men hardly ever. In the UK, in the 70's there was tons of nudity on TV (esp.BBC), that's like a thing of the past now, lots of violence but no nudity.

they always get a good parking space and no one locks their car doors.

...a kid needs to get money out of his piggy bank (which is in and of itself wildly anachronistic in this day and age...what modern-day kid keeps his money in a piggy bank?), he'll break it open with a hammer instead of just pulling the plug out of the bottom and emptying it out. mad Honestly, how stupid is that? Considering how most kids spend their spare cash as fast as they possibly can on frivolous things, it seems crazy to me to literally smash open the recepticle holding it. That's like throwing the good china in the trash after each and every meal instead of washing it and using it again. I'm surprised Hamm from the Toy Story movies made it through all three movies unscathed. eek

Many great one's in this thread.

-Actors playing soldiers are usually at least 10 years older then they would be in real life (Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, The Pacific). War is a young man's game. I assume they do this to get more seasoned and recognizable actors. Non-war movies can do this too.

-You can carry on a normal talking level conversation in any noisy bar/nightclub.

-In Star Trek, the automatic doors can predict the future: as you walk to the door and turn to make one last second comment you just thought of to another character, the door will not open even though you are right next to the door, but it will open when you are done.

Movies that only play the top ten songs of that decade. For instance, it really took me out of Super 8 that they played ELO's Don't Bring Me Down... Heart Of Glass by Blondie... My Sharona by The Knack. I expected them to play Horse With No Name on loop by the end of the film.

Theres way more popular music, way *better* music from every decade than just the same ten songs.

Yep, just the same with bottles!

While it's interesting you have a frame of reference, you might want to address the reason why people hit you over the head with chairs. Just sayin'. smile

The trick with bottles is they'll easily break over someone's head if they're empty. If they're full, their greater mass has a higher chance of absorbing the shock of the hit.

(Please don't ask me how I know this...)

infinite goons : the primary villian has a seemingly endless supply of goons to be shot up in gun battles

Who are these goons? Did they go to goon school and hired via a goon employment agency? Do they aspire to be promoted to higher levels of goon management if they survive?


I was watching The Last Boy Scout last night (that Bruce is one tough mutha), & on the end roller there's a credit for, Milo's Goon & then Marcone's Goons (four names).

Yeah, every single Vietnam or "sixties" movie usually has the same playlist of two dozen or so songs they reuse over and over.

That's one thing I love about Quentin Tarantino's use of music in his films...he always finds these great songs you've never heard of (which then get played to death for years later in TV commercials and various spoofs roll eyes ).
