Have you ever driven somewhere and you were engaged in a conversation?
A real conversation would include "hold on a sec", and "You EFFEN TWIT! Learn how to drive, you asshole!!"

That doesn't happen. No one actually reacts to the road.

Or park . They never reverse unless it's a plot point. They always go forwards.

I always get irritated when someone is shown playing an instrument and they're not really playing.

Haha Loomi, I was thinking about that one while reading the thread! The worst is fake trombone playing. There's one Cosby Show where grandpa Huxtable is "playing" the trombone. He doesn't even hold it right and it's not even close to his lips sometimes. We laughed about that in our 5th grade band class the next day. At least the actor who plays Riker actually knows how to play trombone though he's not actually performing in Star Trek.

As for having a character be interested in something long before it shows up in the show... that made for a great moment in Night Court when Harry finally met Mel Torme. It totally pays off when the character genuinely cares.

A recent one I saw was the abrupt car-chase ending.  This is the one where the police are hot on the tail of the suspect when something causes the lead car to stop (child in the road, debris, whatever) and all the rest of the cars stop as well.   This is all the edge the pursuee needs to make a complete getaway while the police either 1) fire a few halfass shots in the general direction of the vehicle or 2) stand around, take their hats off their heads and slap them against their thighs in disgust.  

My favorite example of a character getting a trait that is completely new yet becomes highly important to the story is from Back to the Future.  In movie one Marty is just an average kid doing what he needs to do but in the 2nd and 3rd flicks if anyone calls him "chicken" he goes into a Hulk like rage.  

Doc Brown: "You see Marty this is why the time machine must be destroyed!  By travelling both backwards and forward in time we are now in a completely alternate film script with new and previously unexplained character elements!"

I am getting sick of seeing sex related stuff in smallville, and i wish hollywood would stop trying to sell sex in action movies. Sex is drama, not action.

Peace.

Smallville itself is one big annoyance.  The only connection the show has to Superman is the character names.

I hate it when a movie or show is supposed to be about high school kids and all the actors look like they are 30.  So yeah, practically every high school movie.

I hate when they drink from empty coffee cups/mugs. It's so frickin' obvious and for some reason it really irritates me. Just the way the pick it up and hold it screams...empty! Grr...

I had step-sisters that didn't know how to chew with their mouths closed when our families first combined.  Drove me absolutely bonkers.
