    When a pregnant womans water breaks, there will never be any water or even a wet spot anywhere!

    Meryl doesn't even try anymore. She just calls Lanvin and asks for curtains with a belt.~Bitter
    Can we interest you in Leann Rimes? She has a nice little cadre of fans you'd probably enjoy.~ Pecan Pie

    115. Every f**king movie that deals with a cop will feature a funeral procession scene complete with march to the grave site, closeup of mournful family members as gun salute fires and bagpipes wail.

    116. All police precincts are corrupt.

    117. Whenever a character dies, especially in a war movie, they never die instantly. They have to go on a 5 minute monologue as they recall some memorable moment from their past, as they gasp and cough until their last breath they pass away with open eyes.

    118. Fat people are always sexless and lazy slobs constantly shown with food in their hands or thinking about food. They are always the butt of jokes played on the protagonist, such as the blind date who turns out to be a 360 pound woman, much to the joy of the audience. har de har har

    119. cell phones will, at the most crucial moment, either lose their signal or lose their battery power.

    120. Gay people are also, unfortunately, the target of scenes of "humor." This occurs usually in "slapstick" scenes where the protagonist accidentally does or say something sexual to another guy who looks glum and mean, and all of a sudden the guy smiles and winks. Guy goes, "oh hell nawww" and sprints away to the merriment of the audience. F**king stupid.

    121. Women cannot mastermind anything. She must always be a sidekick or lackey.

    -Guys who continue to pursue an "out of their league" girl after she's made it clear she's not interested WILL be able to "charm" her into changing her mind.

    -The popular girls are always mean.

    -Everyone lives in New York, LA, or Chicago.

    Movies set in New York, LA or Chicago are almost universally shot in Toronto. No movies ever take place in Toronto. It just stands in for every other north american city.

    My sibs and I noticed that the background music in horror movies is often the same..

    When someone is being chased or they are in a dark house alone...

    1.) There will be the sound of a single piano note being played every two seconds or so.

    2.) You will hear a weird whaaaa chaaa chaaa sound that sounds like two items being clapped together and echoing.

    3.) A drawn out sound similar to bat screeching or car tires squealing can be heard.

    4.) Right before someone dies, there will be the sound of choir singing in unison (this applies to war movies too).

    Single girls always have the gay best friend

    Everyone has time in the morning to eat breakfast and hang out. I have enough time to grab a cup of coffee before I run out the door on my way to work
    Fabulous!

    1. The soundtrack of every movie from the 80's sounds like faux-jazz soundtracks from cheesy porn.

    2. Every female character from the 80's was either a cold-eyed murderous seductress sporting a perpetual smirk, or an incredibly stupid ingenue with bad hair and a borderline ugly face who always got her man.

    3. In the 80's, coke was a matter-of-fact presence in the life of a corporate pretty boy, but it always killed the beautiful second female lead, sent her to rehab, or she hit rock bottom and saw the error of her ways.

    4. The wife of the corporate executive/CIA agent/ will put up with anything with an understanding smile. If she whines a little a huge argument ensues, after which sex makes it all better.

    i was watching Sleepless in Seattle on tv the other nite and what always gets me to giggle a little is how whenever they're shooting in New York they put ppl in these New York yellow cabs from like the 1940s meanwhile everyone else is riding in modern cabs which is actually the case b/c those cabs dont exist anymore unless they're on showcase somewhere and not in operation its just funny - in every single movie with a scene in new york of ppl riding a cab that will be the cab they're in.

    kinda like this:
    i guess they're more photogenic

    1. Not so much these days, but for quite awhile in the 80s-90s if there was an African-American wearing a sweater and glasses and working at a computer, then he was a BAD guy. Like there was something inherently evil about black people using computers.

    2. Who is real life wakes up naked in bed with someone and wraps herself in a sheet? And why is always the woman and not the man? Is the man just supposed to walk around with his falls hanging out?
