RIP everything John Cusack ever tried in a movie.

The times, they are a-changing, as some old guy once said. Courtship is going down the tubes with the Tinders and the OKCupids, and every year, movies about how people used to fall in love become less and less relevant. Here are some movie tropes that, although not that old, are completely irrelevant now thanks to technology.

1. Standing in the rain to call someone on a payphone.

Everyone has a cell phone. A cell phone they barely use as a phone. So, if you could text someone about your love life without even leaving your bed, that's probably the better option now. The payphone in the rain is dead.
