Cinema’s Most Overused Line? “You just don’t get it, do you.”

Our regular video editor, Oliver Noble, was all scabby and raw this week, so he sent in his understudy, Jeff Smith (whom you might remember from “Glove Actually“).  I thought it was a great idea because I like people with regular names, American names, such as “Mike Jones,” or “Jeff Smith,” or “John Brown.”  Makes a man seem trustworthy, you know? Jeff had an idea for a supercut based around “You just don’t get it, do you?”

I’ll admit, it wasn’t the first bad-movie cliché that sprung to mind for me, but after watching a full eight minutes of it, I realize holy crap, it might be the MOTHER of all clichés.  If you can find a more pervasive line than this… make a supercut of it and send it to me, these posts are really easy for me.  Anyway, it’s not as cheesy as, say, “We’ve got company!”, but it’s definitely one of those lines where you’re more hearing what a screenwriter wants to get a across rather than something a character might realistically say. “YOU JUST DON’T GET IT, DO YOU?  WELL! PERHAPS I SHOULD LAY IT OUT MORE EXPOSITARILY THEN! WOULDN’T THAT JUST BE MUCH BETTER FOR EVERYONE!”
