Some people are saying that of course lots of movies have that phrase in it and that it`s no big deal... but you just don`t get it, do you?

The point is that it`s a typical Hollywood writing device, and its repeated use just helps to prove that all Hollywood movies are the same. I bet all these movies have a happy ending and a kiss in them too.

Mind you, I suppose even this is nothing new...

Oh no, a bunch of movies have a sentence in common. I wonder how many movies have the term "good night in them. Maybe we should make a montage about that, too.

You just don`t get it, do you fancy? this is a common phrase, can you figure out a better way to convey this exact thought?

just because a phrase has outlasted most humans doesn`t make it a bad cliche. someone should make a compilation of all the way people say something is nice [eg cool, rad, tubular, sick, awesome, wicked, etc]

Never thought of this one. I liked it.
Ten years ago I wanted to make an, "Oh My God" compilation but even then I realized it would be a week long. Done today It would last a month.
I`m going to enroll in a writing class.

I`m ashamed to say that I know that one. It`s "Tooth Fairy". I`m now going to go shoot myself in the face for destroying in a single post any semblance of coolness I ever earned over the years.

There was a "Daria" movie, or is this video titled wrong?
Also, I really need to watch "Homeward Bound" again. I swear I watched that movie at least once a week when I was a kid.

some folks just don`t get it - the phrase `you just don`t get it` is a cliche in general, not just in movies, and it shows up so often in movies because people use it so often in real life.

There were some good movies in there.

But I`m reasonably sure I have never used that expression in my life and completely sure I never will.

I made it 2 minutes in. They made their point...

I guess when one asks "that movie sucked but I can`t put my finger on it", this suggests an answer.

There are worse cinema cliches. "That`s gonna leave a mark," for one.

I think it`s too common a phrase to be considered a movie cliche. Now the Wilhelm Scream - THAT`S a cliche!
