Hold on... for the ride of your life!

I just saw the Hidalgo trailer on TV... and was once again reminded to prepare myself, no, HOLD ON... for what? For the RIDE OF MY LIFE of course!

How many times have we been told to "Hold on, for the ride of your life!". Has anything ever lived up to this bold claim? Could we have a trailer for an action/thriller that doesn't ask us to hold on!?

Even tag lines...

Silverado (1985)
Get ready for the ride of your life.

Sonic Impact (1999)
Grab On For The Ride Of Your Life.

Total Recall (1990)
Get ready for the ride of your life.

Train Quest (2001)
The ride of your life!

Joyride (1996)
Would you kill for the ride of your life?

Man From Snowy River (2003)
The ride of your life!

Crackerjack 2 (1996)
Hold On For The Ride Of Your Life!

Armageddon (1998)
Take the Ride of Your Life!

8 Seconds (1994)
Hang on for the ride of your life!

This Summer... In a World... etc, etc... I can't think of any cliche more widespread...nothing can even compete with "HOLD ON!". They seem to use it in EVERY SINGLE action movie out there!

Are there any movie trailer cliches worse than this?

That's a GREAT trailer. One of my all time favorites.

Still want to see Hidalgo, though.

At least this one has to do with the plot (rodeo cowboy) so that one is ok.
