    Lights in a large building/warehouse/school/staduim always "clang" when turned on or off.

    Pointing a gun at someone makes a hell of a noise.

    Nobody ever burps after drinking something fizzy, nor does anything fizz over.

    People always go totally limp when knocked out, and never have any side effects when they come round.

    People have incredible grip and strength when hanging from ledges.

    Instant internet.

    From streaming video off Youtube to hacking into government websites, anything on the web is instantly accessable from any computer in the time it takes to type it in. Meanwhile, my computer takes two minutes just to load the EG forum page.

    Wish I knew what ISP these Hollywood computers use.

    Probably only TV shows, but a celebratory hug, and then the reaction shot of one anxious looking person who's obviously hiding something.

    Moral of the story: Never trust a hug.

    One cliché I'm really beginning to notice is, when the film is about to end, the protagonist does a narration bit, trying to sum up some of the main things he has learnt, before fading to credits. It's getting rather overused now.

    Another one I can't stand is when there is a misunderstanding between some characters, causing them to temporarily go their separate ways, but rather than one of them trying to explain what happened, they just say, "B-b-but that's not what I meant, you don't understand". That's just lazy writing.

    To add to Toonstar's point, when people believe something said by someone they hate.

    "My husband is cheating on me with you? You have no proof, you've lied before and I hate you but I'll take your word for it."
