Strange movie cliché

Here is an oft-heard phrase in heist movies, said by the cop or competing gangster upon cornering the bad guy:
"You made one mistake, Jimmy. You got greedy."
Um.. hello? Jimmy is a gangster. He didn't get greedy, he was greedy from the start. That's why he took up a life of crime. Tsk. Movies... they're so unrealistic.
