Might want to add one more link:

Nuke The Fridge


A colloquialism used to delineate the precise moment at which a cinematic franchise has crossed over from remote plausibility to self parodying absurdity, usually indicating a low point in the series from which it is unlikely to recover. A reference to one of the opening scenes of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, in which the titular hero manages to avoid death by nuclear explosion by hiding inside a kitchen refrigerator.

Sample usage:

Man, when Peter Parker started doing the emo dance in Spider-Man 3, that franchise officially nuked the fridge.

@John: So, "nuke the fridge" is the cinematic equivalent of "jump the shark"? Actually, I thought the fridge-nuking scene was the best thing about IJ and the Crystal skull.

@Q. Pheever: Thanks!

thanx for mentioning wwftd in your linkfest, but you should note that the 'top' link, as given below, gets you a more complete look, including links to other word sites, etc. (it's an old style using frames. : )

Thanks, tsuwm. In case other readers missed that "top" link, here it is: http://home.comcast.net/~wwftd

I've changed it in the post, too.
