I still maintain that the most ubiquitous and unnoticed Hollywood lazy screenwriting cliche is what I call the 'feelings check-in'... One character unnecessarily and unrealistically asks the other "You OK?" (sometimes "You alright?") after almost anything happens. It normally occurs at least 3-5 times in most Hollywood movies.
"You OK?"


Tone, You're absolutely right, and I've even discussed it with my Uni guys - everyone agrees with you. Only reason it's not in the post is that you reminded me of this AFTER I wrote the original post, and I've been scrupulously avoiding "rewrites" on the re-posts...
