Bed squeaks whenever somebody's having sex.  Does everybody in Hollywood have a bad mattress?

WHen someone is typing on a computer, each keystroke beeps. 
-Ed

Ooo...good one.  Similarly, how about when text is appearing on the screen (someone on the OTHER end is typing), it makes a typing, or other, sound.

In WAR GAMES, the text sound effects were cool.  In all other movies, they are just teh lamers.

The sound effect I've always hated is the that really annoying scream that's like "NNNNRRRRAAAAAAWWWWWW!"

I even heard it on a promo for one of the CSI series not to long ago when someone fell (or was pushed, whatever, I hate those shows) off a building. Totally distracted from anything else they tried to get across.

As for old style video game noises, do the producers have to license the use of sound effects just like they would music? Or maybe it's the same as using lookalike products or blocking parts of logos of real products that aren't paid product placements. Are the Atari 2600 noise free to use or in lots of sound effects compilations that post production studios use? When I hear the wrong noises, I just pretend they're playing an emulator of old school games. Why anyone would want to still play Pac-Man 2600 style I have no idea.

I recently learned the reason so many people keep a donkey or two in with their cows and horses is that cows and horses will run from a coyote but a donkey will stand its ground and fight.

 I thought is was because the donkeys were just so darn cute.

Nope. Donkeys cost money to care for and feed the same as other livestock, unless the owner has money to burn those jackasses are there for a reason. Donkeys and dogs don't mix either, that's one of the reasons I didn't get my dog back from my friends when I moved here. I'd never forgive myself if that little Jack Russell Terrier (a breed that acts like it's a bigger dog than it is) got through or under the fence and met up with a donkey. I saw that cute friendly playful jack I mentioned turn stone cold and ready to kill when the neighbor's barky but harmless dog got his attention one day. The dog was across the fence and on the other side of the road still in it's yard, lucky for her.

If someone in a comedy throws something offscreen it always hits a cat and makes it yowl.

Thurder always sounds at the exact same time when you see the lightening.

Bird pop always makes a loud "sploich' noise whenever it hits someone.

Cockroaches always make a loud skuttling noise even when they run over carpet.

When a cow appears on camera it will immediately moo.

I swear I'm going to make a hacker movie and every time someone is typing away at a computer, I'm going to use this...even if they are already connected online.

Whenever there is a group of kids playing I hear the same sound effect of kids laughing.

God, that one laughter sample drives me nuts. It's so easy to recognise.

What about the continued use of the 'theme' and sounds from the ATARI 2600 Pac-Man(duhn...duhn duhn...duhn...POK! oooEEPP!)for any and all video game representations in films?

Am I the only one who finds it insanely stupid that even today in movies, where games have reached the point where they're almost cinematic, you'll see somebody playing on a videogame and it'll be making 'bleep bleep zap zap' sounds like something from the Atari 2600?

Sometimes it's really wierd, because they'll be holding like a PlayStation 2 controller or something, and it'll be making sounds from Pac-Man.
Don't forget about 2600 Donkey Kong; its sound fx get a lot of use too.

I was shocked that a movie with either a Tandy 4000 or a Comodore 64 (with cassette drive no less) was used promenntly in EVILSPEAK (With Clint Howard) He stole the Military Academy's big ass computer and dragged it down to the creepy cobweb infested, torchlit basement (in 1981... guess the military spent all their money on the one computer instead of lightbulbs)

Anyway, every time Clint started typing, something very unique and odd happened, there was no "beeping" or "booping" computer SFX what so ever. All we  heard was the sound of the keyboard clicking away..  And this was in 1981!!!

Silenced firearms having the pew pew or phttt sound when in in reality it sounds like firecrackers going off movies where all gunshots regardless of the caliber sounds the same Euro crime and action movies as well as westerns are notorious for this.

Lasers: They’re either high-pitched whistling, as in War of the Worlds or those “Pew Pew” sounds from Star Wars.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
