40) First Time is not the Charm in Cars:
Cars never start on the first try in an escape. If the bad guy or the monster is coming for you, you’ll have to try three or four times to start the engine before it’ll finally cooperate.
39) One Size Fits All:
If the hero needs to steal clothes from someone to disguise himself, the clothes he takes will always fit him perfectly. (If only clothing stores were so convenient.)
38) The First Day on the Job Never Goes Well:
If a character says it’s his/her first day on the job, you know trouble is coming. Disaster is afoot! Similarly, the person who has one day till retirement is probably not going to make it
37) Thunder/lighting Synchronicity:
Thunder and lightning always strike at exactly the same moment in films. They must rehearse before the storm.
36) Get the Umbrella Ready:
When it rains it pours. It never drizzles, sprinkles or mists in films. Every rain is a heavy rain. And it’s always sudden—one minute it’s clear and then the skies open.
