The less conventionally-attractive and/or black/ethnic/gay best friend
Worst offenders: Most all of them
An extension of "love so white," this abhorrent cliche posits that racial minorities and less conventionally attractive white folks are good only for one thing: doling out advice and quips to Meg Ryan and Matthew McConaughey. No inner life required. In fact, it's discouraged! Molly Shannon, you deserve better than this. "Friends with Benefits" tried to subvert the "gay best friend" trope by making Justin Timberlake's man-loving friend totally macho and down to play b-ball and stuff. Because as we all know, there is no continuum of personality traits in the gay world. It's one or the other!
