Default Stupid movie cliches and impossibilities

Watching "Sneakers" at the moment, just realizing how inane it is for a guy to be scrambling around on top of a suspended acoustic tile ceiling.

Default Lazy writers!

I think most film writers have done little or nothing else - and it shows. Their knowledge of practical matters comes mostly from other movies, the one thing they do have personal experience with.

The rising laugh - a good way to get out of a confrontation but any screenwriter or director who uses one should be shot.

A couple of my all-time favorites are "the gun that never runs out of bullets" and "oh no, the monsters behind the door and...whew, it's just a cat".

How about heating ducts / air shafts that are always big enough for anyone to walk around. They are always made out of tin yet no one ever hears a thing and they never collapse or break. It may be my limited experience in heating and cooling systems speaking, but I've never seen a duct big enough for me or anyone else to get into comfortably and they certainly didn't look like they would hold my weight.

Most porn movies have numerous implausibilities. Repairman comes to fix appliance, ends up coming on girl's face. And so on. But, it sure is fun to watch!

In Mission Impossible II, there is a chase between two Triumph motorcycles in which the bikes handle brilliantly at high speeds both on tarmac and on dirt/grass. At no stage do we see them in the workshop being fitted with motocross tyres for the changeover to dirt.

Mission Impossible II: I could chew 35mm film and shit a better movie.

I have to agree with you. I've never known this to happen to anyone outside of porn.
