The use of cliches in The Matrix is plentiful. It’s essentially the story of a messed up world/society whose fate is in the hands of a motley crew of rebels, specifically counting on one person (normally a man) to lead and save them all. The man, initially skeptical of his abilities to lead and carry such a burden on his shoulders, eventually succeeds, saving the day and getting the girl; because the (in this case, awkward) romance subplot is vital to the formula, however unnecessary it may be to the story as a whole.

His aspirations for goods make him want stuff that he neither required nor could manage to pay for. Willy believes that he wishes to purchase his wife a new refrigerator even though she is satisfied with what they have. As he strives to live the American dream he honors those who have been victorious at doing so, like his successful brother. Additionally he penalizes those who did not make any efforts towards that ideal or achieve it, like his son Biff, and for the most part prominently himself.
