Inspired by a wildly popular /r/AskReddit thread, users have created another subreddit, /r/BadMovieDescriptions, where they describe a movie's plot in the worst possible way. Some of these bad movie descriptions may be obvious to you, but will definitely surprise you when you're stumped. They also do a great job at shouting out the things that don't quite make sense in a movie, like a character trait or a weird plotline. 

Most of these bad movie descriptions are so funny because of how true they are to the plot, so browse below and vote up the most creative descriptions for your favorite movies.
