Question of the Day

What is your most detested trite, overused movie metaphor?

Every time I see a person jumping into the water as a symbolic "baptism" into some new role or stage of life, I roll my eyes so hard I practically sprain my eyeballs.

This bothers me even more than head-clunkingly obvious footage of sunrises/sunsets to symbolize birth/death, or the dreaded "changing leaves" to suggest the passage of time.
