This is a quesition about ideology (acknowledgement/push back) and possibly film trolling…

In film scripts, we take the opportunity to expose the social normalcy with which  we abide by, fight, etc. Lines such as:  “I thought the guy is supposed to rescue the girl” ,  “isn’t the guy suppose to propose to the girl”, or “he’s not the average jock” (made these up but still relatively common). These lines project out of the screens  immediate scenario and attempt to respond to our beliefs in that moment–which might agree or conflict with what we are immediately seeing. These lines may be highlighting the influences of industrialized culture or our hermeneutics of suspision…But I still have this question:

How would you define lines such as these and are they similar to trolling? Granted, my only knowledge of trolling is from our class discussion.
