Badly Explained Movie Plots That Are Technically True

These funny movie synopses feel totally wrong, but are sort of on point. They read like someone who just started watching movies for the first time badly trying to explain a plot. It's fun to try and think of other movies you can sum up in just a few sentences with crude reductionism. Beauty and the Beast? A young woman makes friends with some furniture and falls in love with her kidnapper. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? Creepy rich guy lures families into a building and kills kids in front of their parents. Inception? A group of colleagues take some epic naps together.

Take a look at some of these hilariously bad (but not wrong) plot summaries, and if you want more funny movie-related content, try this!

Mr. Beans's Face Photoshopped Onto Hollywood Characters Because Why Not

Mr. Bean was one of those classic 'I don't know why this is funny, but it just is' shows. For a guy who barely spoke, he somehow managed to make everyone laugh, which is a particular skill that not many actors or comedians have. So how about a little reminder of how funny Mr. Bean was, with some pictures of his face photoshopped onto famous Hollywood characters, that someone somewhere had the ingenuity to create? Somehow these are almost as funny as watching him on TV, so my conclusion is that his humor is in his face. What do you think?

History of the Day: The Hollywood Sign Transformations and Pranks

On New Year's Day, residents woke up to see that the famous "Hollywood" sign had fallen victim to a prank overnight.
But this wasn't the first time the Hollywood sign has fallen victim to a prank or been altered. Here's a quick list of the changes the sign has seen since its creation.

We’re off to a great start.

The first, only, and by default, best public prank of 2017 is here. Around 3:30 am on New Year’s day, someone snuck up to the Hollywood sign, threw several carefully cut tarps over the two Os so that they would look like Es, and disappeared, like a ninja in a cloud of smoke. The sign read “Hollyweed" until 12:30pm, when Stacy Isroelit, a spokeswoman for the Hollywood Sign Trust said that the tarps would be taken down.

The New York Times reported that the prank may be referencing new legislation for legalized recreational marijuana use, but Isroelit said, “It looks more like a New Year’s Eve prank.”

The suspect is still at large. Who knows if they’ll attack other American icons, like putting a joint in Teddy Roosevelt's mouth on Mount Rushmore or making the Statue of Liberty’s torch look like a bong. You know, other weed stuff.

Celebrities and cartoon characters are attempting to distance themselves form the crime.

Whoever did it, thank you for getting this year off on the right foot.

There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.

When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.

Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.

If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.

Step one: make a lot of awesome videos. Step two: Make sure everybody loves those videos. Step three: Make a mother freakin' movie.

The comedy trio of Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone are developing an untitled movie with Universal Pictures, The Wrap reported. Schaffer and Taccone will co-direct the film, while Judd Apatow has signed on as a producer.

There's not much information about the plot of the comedy so far except that it's "set in the music world" and followed an earlier deal that The Lonely Island would create digital content for Fox.

"The Master of Suspense" Alfred Hitchcock's earliest surviving work on record The White Shadow (1924) is now available for free streaming via the National Film Preservation Foundation (NFPF). A tale of two sisters--one good and the other evil--based on Michael Morton's novel Children of Chance, the silent film was long thought to be lost for decades until it was recovered in the garden shed of New Zealander cinema projectionist Jack Murtagh in 1989 and donated to the NFPF.

Ernest Borgnine, one of the last remaining legends of the Golden Age of Hollywood, passed away Sunday at age 95. Borgnine was a prolific television and film actor whose 200-plus credits include From Here To Eternity, The Poseidon Adventure, The Dirty Dozen, ER, McHale's Navy and Airwolf. He won an Oscar for Best Actor in 1955 for Marty. The endearing clip above is from an appearance on Fox & Friends Live where he dispenses some sagely advice on his longevity.

For decades, Jackie Chan's been rapidly kicking, jumping out of trees, and breaking every bone in his body to entertain audiences. Now, Chan says that his Buster Keaton-inspired kung fu days are over. While promoting his new movie, Chinese Zodiac, Chan said, "I want to be an Asian Robert DeNiro," claiming that he was "too old" to continue doing action films. As he's 58, he should be granted that wish.

Before smirking commences, Chan has taken on a smattering of dramatic roles in the past, going as far back as the first Police Story movie and as recently as 2009's crime drama, Shinjuku Incident.

Patrick Dempsey plays a doctor on Grey's Anatomy, so naturally, when he saw a car flipped over in Malibu, the actor pulled the teenage driver out and stayed with him until paramedics arrived. While this definitely makes Dempsey a do-gooder, one can hope that he could perform his role from Loverboy, where he played a pizza delivery boy/gigolo, as his next screen-to-real-life project.
