Movie Cliches

Hi guys,

Long time listener, first time threader…

I’m looking for lists of movie cliches for certain genres. Horror and sports are pretty standard and google-able. I’m looking for cliches to do with Love Stories, Crime Noir, and Musicals (if they exist).

Any help on this would be most welcome!

Kind regards,


The TVTropes wiki is pretty much dedicated to that sort of thing. (Despite the name, they do everything from TV to movies to comic books.)

Looks like I’m going to have a lot of fun in there, cheers MEBuckner.

You’ll also have fun with Roger Ebert’s “Bigger” Little Movie Glossary.

Thanks Exapno.
