Living situations. Whether it’s homey British country homes ala The Holiday or sprawling, tastefully decorated mansions ala Father of the Bride or my GOD the kitchen in It’s Complicated, living abodes are always fun to fancy over.
Old people!!!! We love MOMS and DADS!!! We also love older actors who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to their roles and aren’t afraid to be total goobers. Notable goobers include: Bill Nighy, Eli Wallach, Carl Reiner, Shirley MacLaine, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand
Any montage set to “Bad Girls” by M.I.A
When people start out bad at something, but then end up really good at something!!! (like The Karate Kid. Just the remake though)
movies where characters place bets on social situation (ala She’s All That, How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days)
a scene that involves the line “YOU LIED TO ME!”
Copious double takes. Please witness the best double take in history:
When people take walks for no reason. Like in Enchanted. No one has time for walks except in GREAT MOVIES!
