Any variation of "you don't know what you're dealing with". Heroes has been doing this a lot lately.

What are some lines that you are just SICk of hearing over and over in movies?

My personal top hate on this list has to be a cop/detective/agent walking onto the scene of a murder/crime/event and saying "WHAT HAVE WE GOT?" to whomever meets him first.

I see/hear it weekly and it makes me want to murder.



"You forgot the obvious"

"Let's get out of here"

I thought lines about 'going Home' were played out at the end of films.
I mean home??
I know home is supposed to be the comfortable place to get away from where they've been, but ...

I mean, why not skip it and go straight to a resort?

not really a line... but i hate that cliche of someone giving a speech or teaching a lecture in a college class and then all of a sudden a person comes in the back and the person just pauses briefly to look at them.. kinda stutters then excuses themself but no one in the audience ever seems to mind... arggh... the audience acts like nothing is wrong!!! if that ever happens to me i'd be like "WTF"... and look back to see what the person is looking at!

Along the same lines as this topic, overplayed and unnecessarily and wrongfully dramatized "Let's go". I've seen this even in good movies. And b/c it's a movie I like, it gets a pardon. But sometimes there's a pause in the music and action and it's only broken by this two-word line, and then nothing really follows it either. This pause of all leading into and following the line overdramatizes it to the point where the speaker no longer appears cool but a wannabe IMO.

Two examples of good flicks using it like this:

The main dude in 'Sin City' ...

... and Logan in 'X-Men 2 X-Men United'.
