Ran across this earlier today and thought @Evil Developer might be able to use it as a checklist for movie nights:

 

A Brief History of Evil Developers in Movies

 

Quite a few solid pull quotes that HAIFers will undoubtedly find amusing, for example:

 

Quote

But there’s at least one real-estate developer plot that Hollywood seems to have so far ignored, the one that’s often playing out real-life today: Wealthy NIMBY property owners fight development to “save their neighborhood,” when in reality they are trying to keep out low-income renters from accessing their exclusive school district. Perhaps this scenario isn’t quite as satisfying as watching a bunch of scrappy kids save their house by finding a pirate ship hidden in a cave.

 

:lol:

I've heard the "save the community center" plot, but I guess it was Breakin' 2 that inspired it (along with the joke about "Electric Boogaloo" being used as a sequel name)?

 

Did they have a '80s music montage and a freeze-frame ending of everyone jumping up in a "yeah" pose?
