Movies are known for being a bit formulaic at times—even some of the good ones. Dialogue alone can, at times, sound like it was written using a checklist of stock phrases. We've all heard tropes like "don’t you die on me," "there's no time to explain," "we’ve got company," "why don't we all split up," and "it's not what it looks like," again and again.
Luckily, we now have College Humor writer, Ryan Creamer, to thank for breathing new life into one of these hackneyed phrases: “You guys are gonna wanna take a look at this.”
In the following video, Creamer walks us through a smattering of the different character types and situations that utilize this all-too-common line of foreboding dialogue—he gets an A+ for accuracy.
Take a look:
Twitter was delighted:
Brilliant. I’m going to email this to all my friends. Wish I could think of a good subject line for it.— Neil Richards (@neilrich75) May 13, 2018
There was no shortage of love for Creamer:
Though there were a few archetypes Creamer forgot:
You forgot “side character that didn’t seem like he had much potential but ended up saving everyone in the movie with some small piece of information”— • 𝕞𝕚𝕔𝕙𝕖𝕝𝕝𝕖 • (@laneboywrx) May 13, 2018
You missed action prone archaeologist uncovering some long-lost and until now deemed mythical ancient time crystals, you silly goose— ToddAndChips (@ToddAndChips) May 13, 2018
What about the guy the that runs in on two people talking and puts both hands at the sides of a door way with heavy breathing and then runs back— ♿𝓜𝓮𝓵𝓪𝓷𝓬𝓱𝓸𝓵𝔂 𝓒𝓻𝓲𝓹🇱🇦 (@cripcousin) May 14, 2018
So, what do we owe Creamer for his funny, spot-on imitations?
all I ask from this is that I get cast in this role in every movie going forward— Ryan Creamer (@ryguyguyry) May 13, 2018
