    I think he means more like the station wagons that seem to appear in a film with the 'typical american family' big house, 4 kids (one tearway son/daughter) mum stays at home and dad is some nerdy high flying exec, oh and a golden retriever type dog.

    A room can have one candle that burns with the illumination of a 150 watt lightbulb.

    There's never any dung in cowboy towns despite horses everywhere.

    All waterholes in the desert have been poisoned.

    Only shorthand typists can read smoke signals on a windy day (just kidding about that one ).

    Every priest in New York is Irish.

    And despite the US having a population of over 300 million across a land mass the size of Europe, almost every story happens in New York. Occasionally Chicago or Boston, sometimes LA, but most of the time it's New York.

    Cops will always meet the mob boss in secret under the Brooklyn Bridge with Manhattan in the background.

    Every murder in the movies is the worst that the detective has ever seen in his 40 years in the police force.

    Whenever he's miles from anywhere, the hero will always gets a ride on the back of a pick-up truck carrying boxes of live chickens.

    All victimised ranchers have a pretty Doris-Day-esque young daughter who is tough as nails.

    That's the sort of car that's used in the original Thomas Crown Affair. It's the car they use to disappear the money from the bank heist.

    Not a cliche in that film.

    People saying that they could "use " a drink. Then pulling a macho grimace after downing a whisky.

    Anybody else on here will now watch movies while subconsciously playing the cliche version of Bullshyt Bingo?
    I know I will.

    In the aftermath of a car accident there is always the continuing sound of the carhorn.

    Doors are always easily kicked in or blown off their hinges, never takes more than one kick to have them flying open.

    Cars driven through the front of a house so the hero can save the day.

    After a sex scene , the actors cuddle into each other instead of saying "ewww you move first " then waddling to the toilet.

    Friends and relatives are always in the theatre when someone is being resuscitated. They’re always allowed to run along side the trolley when someone is being rushed to theatre.

    Massively long telephone cables that allow them to take the phone around the house.

    People running out into moving traffic almost never get run down, except if it benefits the story, such as the bag guy getting run down so the good guy can catch them

    Women who spend days in the desert or jungle but still manage to don perfect make up and hair

    If there's a sniper in the plot you are 100% guaranteed a view through his telescopic sight.

    Characters jumping out of buildings into skips full of rubbish and being absolutely fine, as if people only put foam in skips, rather than old masonry, timber and green bathroom suites.

    After a sex session, the woman gets up, but wraps the bedsheet around her so the guy won't see her naked. Even though they just pumped.

    Characters trying to hide when in someone else's property are never heard even though they are closing the cupboard/wardrobe door when the person is already in the room.

    The hero has local knowledge of the area he's in even though he's never been there however, the local baddies get lost in their own back yard.

    Babies are born spotlessly clean, always cry straight away and are born at about 4 months old.

    No blood, mucus, anxious moments, squashed heads and scrunched features for movie babies.

    Cops who are told by the Police Chief that they're being pulled off a case continue to work on it secretly.
    They never do what they are told.

    If anybody loses a button or an earing it's sure to be the missing link that will solve the case.

    Apart from Colombo, everybody drives brand new cars.

    Any lone car travelling along a long straight road in the middle of nowhere will usually pass a road kill, with a close-up shot from the verge as the car speeds on by.

    In westerns, if there's a big mirror behind the bar, it's guaranteed to get smashed when the fight starts.
