There's a Storm A-Brewin'

What does this storm mean?!

A friend of mine always points out when it's raining in a movie, because he recognizes that usually rain signifies a change in the plot or for the characters. When it rains, a significant change is about to take place. So I'm wondering, what's about to change here? While we wait and see, let's consider some movies with rain...

Lion King: rain comes and Simba's reign is restored

Sense and Sensibility: during a rain storms Marianne meets the boy who will break her heart and change her forever

Pride and Prejudice: a down-pour hits and Mr. Darcy confesses his somewhat-skewed love for Elizabeth Bennet, thus changing their strange relationship

New Moon: a torrent showers Bella and Jacob as she confronts him about his weird behavior that will change her circumstances

Pirates of the Carribbean Dead Man's Chest: movie opens with rain falling on Elizabeth's wedding as her fiance is arrested, changing their plans for the day

A Cinderella Story: rain drops plop down upon Sam and Austin's first kiss as they both admit their feelings for each other and change their destinies

101 Dalmations: a storm brews as the 15 puppies are born and Cruella threatens the family, changing the story for the worst

These are just a random few exambles. Feel free to share more!

the storm scene in the Notebook when the relationship turns and she calls Noah out on the letters only to find he'd been sending them...their love reunites!

I think it may rain during Freaky Friday---oh wait that is the aquacade.

But it surely rains on the Island of Misfit Toys---oh wait that is a snow storm---MOOSH! MOOSH!
