People On Twitter Are Explaining Movie Plots Badly And They Are Pure Gold

When boiling classic movies down to their bare bones, even the most heartfelt story can sound pretty fucked up. Sometimes the simplest messages are the most profound and when you cut it down the the brass tacks, Jenny was totally giving Forrest the run around for three decades. Only when she was dying did she give Forrest what he had been hoping for for 30 years. Poor Forrest got burned.

The hashtag #ExplainAFilmPlotBadly has been trending on Twitter and the below submissions are some of the greatest. Enjoy.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
