Re: CURRENT MOVIE CLICHES

Another cliche is when a woman is kidnapped or confined by male villains, she will try to seduce them and the guys will actually fall for it, thinking it was genuine.

I like the President from The Sum of All Fears because he is more frustrated and hotheaded than you often see in a President portrayal, off the top of my head.
