Today I was watching a movie - Hacksaw Ridge in which the lead actor flirts with the actress.
The conversation was like this:
He: Ever since you stuck me with that needle, my heart's been beating real fast. Every time I think about you it beats faster still.
Then the actress replies - I never heard that before. It's pretty corny.
The dictionary meaning of word corny is something which is trite, banal, common. The actress first said that she had never heard that before means that was something new for her but then why did she call it corny? Aren't both sentences opposite of each other?
