Netflix’s ‘Attack of the Hollywood Clichés’ slaps tired film tropes


The Guy Gets the Girl. The Spit Take. The Meet-Cute.

Movie clichés are very straightforward to identify. Not simply to film lovers, however even to the untrained eye.

Rob Lowe is internet hosting a brand new particular for Netflix, titled “Attack of the Hollywood Clichés,” during which he and a few well-known mates will talk about these tired tropes — and lots of extra — which might be seen in motion pictures throughout all genres.

“Stock characters, familiar story beats and convenient plot devices have crept in over time,” Lowe, 57, narrates in a trailer that dropped Friday. “Tonight, we celebrate the clichés that have made cinema what it is today.”

The one-hour documentary drops Sept. 28 and options many A-listers, administrators and writers breaking down basic tropes.

Stars corresponding to Andrew Garfield (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye”), Oscar nominee Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”), Golden Globe winner Andie MacDowell (“Short Cuts”), Robert Englund (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”) and Oscar nominee Florence Pugh (“Little Women”) — plus greater than two dozen different Hollywood insiders — will give their takes on iconic film tropes and the motion pictures that use them.

The teaser gives clichés corresponding to film thrillers’ Ticking Time Bomb and horror motion pictures’ heart-stopping Jump Scare, with “Forest Gump,” “Silence of the Lambs,” “Independence Day” and “Hudson Hawk” amongst the memorable flicks featured in the teaser.
