The gay couple are not allowed to be unremarkable as part of the normal array of relationships. They must Serve A Purpose.

You can make it as confusing as you like as long as you tell us the proper ending in the last 5 mins

Another uk one..

Actors must always speak cockney or posh Jeeves type voices

Tom Cruise must always do some running and Brad Pitt must always eat something.

the most beautiful woman in the world may be cast as the slightly plain-looking best friend if wearing glasses

After amazing sex - please get out of bed and put pants/bra back on for the following morning.

Fairy, yes but you missed out the third option of illegible accent so bad that it requires subtitles.

Can be any extreme, Scottish/welsh/irish or the more local ones

Put any woman in labour in stirrups. Degrade and humiliate here by doing so.

Make sure your main characters mumble, your dialogue is probably shit so hide it.

Make at least two main characters very similar in looks to confuse your audience.

A scene where someone says they will never,ever do something, followed by a scene where they are doing it.

Anyone can guess anyone's password within 3 attempts. You just have to know a bit about their life.

Man aged 45+ having relationship/sex with woman aged 18-25 = completely unremarkable, won't even be commented upon. Woman aged 45+ even glancing at man aged 18-25 = yuk, gross, she's a cougar/desperate/predatory/disgusting.

British people all drive Minis.

No-one can save the world except America.

Good people are good looking.
Bad people are ugly

In American Films the English person is always the baddy.

in Murder Mysteries the most famous person always did it

There can only be one Indian (nod there to Aziz Ansari) and they must be a stereotypical Indian.

Glasses also almost flawlessly hide the identity of superheroes/heroines. 99% of the population are unable to identify a superhero who is plastered all over the media is they are currently wearing glasses.

Pursuing someone after they knock you back a 100 times because you know best is super romantic and not at all creepy.

If you're a policeman and have a couple of days left until retirement - enjoy them, you're going to die any minute.
