Only in the movies: Our Hero needs some crucial bit of evidence, a photo perhaps. The murder victim must have had it. So he breaks into the victim's house, in the middle of the night, and in the dark, finds the photo. The very same photo that a team of cops didn't find earlier in the day. Or there's that convenient parking space the Hero needs. At rush hour. In New York City So many more...

You ever notice how serial killers always keep incriminating scrapbooks?

Here's a statistic I once heard: Approximately 70 percent of all American movies from the sound era contain the line "Let's get out of here."

Ever notice how nobody ever says "Bye" on the phone, unless its under shockingly devastating circumstances, and even then they dont sometimes?

This is more for TV, but whenever a Character-A calls someone, the person on the other end picks up the phone. Character-A then says "don't say anything, let me talk first." Then they say something embarassing, incriminating, etc. The person on the other end of the phone is always the one person who should not have heard Character A's rant in the first place. This lame type of scene has been going on since the dawn of time.

The dead bad guy is never all the way dead -- able to make one final lunge at the hero(ine).
