Poll Suggestion: What is the Biggest Movie Cliche?

It's a movie crime!!! Which of these cheesy, over done scenes do you find the most unrealistic/annoying?

LOL!  Actually, if it were Jack Slater, it would be
"Big Mistake to Go With Another Insurance Company"
or something like that.  
But yours is great too.  :)

I think this is an impossible idea, it's awesome but impossible, you've got to be more specific, choose a specific area, a theme or a genre and you'll see that even by being specific, you'll be lucky if you don't get overflowed by ideas.

To give you an idea:https://www.imdb.com/poll/eJtgjdMLLcg/

Just saw this comment... I will take this into consideration and try to do a couple separate polls for each subject/genre.  Thanks!

Well, I will just make one strictly for horror movies, one for romance cliches, teen/kid cliches, etc.

Cars:

1. You bump them a little and they explode.

2. But not when the hero drives them. Then they take a lot of crashes and later they look like new and polished.

3. There is always a key under the sunshield.

4. Bad German villains drive black Porsches or Mercedes.

5. When one drives on the sidewalk with 120 kilometres per hour, everybody can jump away in time, even if he sits in a wheelchair. Except when the driver is the villain.

6. Turn-over crashes are always happening in slowmo.

Yes you are so right!  Exception to #2: The car turns over and crashes and blows up - but the "indestructible" hero escapes without a scratch.

Nice that I could inspire you. Yes, that's true, too! :)

Cops:

1. Cops always are burried so deep in sorrows that they are strong alcoholics and chain smokers, but easily cope with catching the whole gang of the bad guys, while staying as a lone wolf and afterwards finally curing their hangover.

2. Cop families are always the inevitable targets of the bad guy.

3. Cops are donut addicts - mostly all of them.

4. FBI Agents always look down at the little cops and cause strongest rivalry.

5. The one and only Cop shoots 5 minutes without reloading the magazin.

They're all true but #1 oh my yes!  I will go in later and update the list.

Bombs:

1. Bombs are always stopped by some hero within 10 seconds before they're about to explode - mostly at the last second. If not, then some relative or colleague of the hero dies by the explosion.

2. Bombs are mostly hidden in a deadly game by some ex-special-forces-guy, ex-policeman or vietnam veteran with post traumatic stress disorder.

3 There are mostly everytime innocent people involved for putting more tension to the deadly game. People, the hero has to interact with.

4. The explosive material is mostly named C4.

5. The bomb itself is a game of skill leading to a blue wire ... or was it the red? The wires are always in different colors to help the hero decide.

ED Jones (XLIX):
Sorry, I didn't watch that TV-Series. But the description of the series could match with the clichees I counted and were seen in many movies. Could you tell me what's NIA? I never heard about that acronym, but would like to know about.

The Villains. 1. Villains will always reveal their whole plan to either the tied-up hero or the hero's tied up family.

Nicely constructed poll, I thought I would have a lot suggestions, but the theme is well-executed. A job well done!

Aww, thanks!  :)  I wonder if it could made a poll the way it is...

The hero has just achieved a personal goal (he got the girl, or something like that) and a crowd of people who have no relation to him stands by in a circle to cheer and clap.

Tournament version: the crowd that roared for acts of violence and only cheered for the stronger contestant is suddenly on the hero's side during the finale, even if he's about to be defeated and even though they know nothing of his inspiring backstory (or whatever is supposed to make the movie viewer root for him).

Important question to an Admin or Whoever is in charge of making polls:
Is it necessary that I make this poll idea for one certain genre, or will it get to go live the way it is?  Thank you.

No, it is not necessary to do separate polls for different genres. That doesn't mean that this will necessarily go live but usually if it was not going live for a specific reason like that, someone would make a suggestion. 

On that point, I like this poll and found myself nodding along, and sometimes laughing along, as I read many of the options. What gives me pause is that there is a lot of text under many of the options and, generally, poll takers unfortunately don't seem to like to read a lot and may just skip a poll instead of voting if it requires a lot of reading. I'd suggest trying to make the descriptions and examples of the options more succinct and cut anything that's not necessary to understand  the choices.

rubyfruit76, Thank you for answering my question and I'm glad I was able to make you laugh, lol!  I will probably go in as soon as I have time and re-do some stuff to make it more concise.

"When the baby is born, it has a full head of hair and looks about a year old."

Many newborns do have hair, though.

Also, I agree that there is a lot of text for one poll. I think you should focus on one cliche per option.
