Movies are made to entertain us, to give us an escape for a couple of hours and get lost in another world. But what if you don't want the details? What if you want the movie stripped back to its bare bones, the entire plot summed up in just a couple of lines?

The wildly popular hashtag #explainafilmplotbadly is still going strong, giving us the essence of our favorite movies in bitesize captions, and highlighting how hilariously ridiculous some movie plots are from different perspectives and without context.

Yes, they are badly explained. And no, the producers of the movies probably do not appreciate the unflattering descriptions. But they are all very funny, and we just love them! Scroll down to check out the list, compiled by Bored Panda, for yourself, and don't forget to upvote your faves!
