This book is a dictionary of film cliches. The entries are written by Roger Ebert and people who have written to his column. Usually the best ones, such as The Far-Off Rattle Movies "Movies in which the climatic scene is shot in a deserted warehouse, where far-off rattles punctuate the silence". This is a fun book to pick up when you have a few minutes to kill (I was reading it while drying my hair the other day), because it's so easily picked up and put down.
