Editor’s note: This is part of a series of posts that highlight repeatedly recycled film topics. I’ll post a link to these within some of my reviews in order to save words and keep from driving myself crazy writing the same thing over and over.

The more I think about this one, the more I think of more films that follow this rule. If the female lead is wearing layers, check to see if there’s a white t-shirt or tank top as the base. If she does, those layers will slowly disappear. By the end of the film, she’ll be one pitcher of beer away from a wet t-shirt contest. Sexist? Obviously. I call it the Lara Croft Rule only because Lara’s base layer is so renowned. Examples? How about “Career Opportunities,” “Those Who Wish Me Dead,” “Twister,” and “Uncharted?” Can you think of more?
