*If a guy's supposed to be a nerd, he wears glasses. Ditto if a girl's supposed to be unattractive: glasses. When the guy or girl is transformed from an ugly duckling to a swan, the glasses disappear. No mention of switching to contact lenses; apparently they were just wearing glasses for the heck of it, not to correct their vision or anything.
*Women in movies can't go shopping the way normal people do - they always do it in a montage involving an old-time Motown hit song, radiant smiles, cascades of laughter, and of course, the inevitable impromptu dance moves and fashion show on the sales floor.
*If a person is sad, they will stare out the window at the rain (there's that pesky rain again) and the rain streaming down the windows will reflect onto their face, and even though they're only crying on the inside, the rain makes it look like they're really crying, and isn't it artful? The first person to do this = golden. Everyone who copied it = hacks.
*TVs and radios will be turned on at the precise moment that a news bulletin crucial to the plot begins.
