There’s a really funny meme making the rounds lately called “The Poster vs. The Plot.” It consists of two side-by-side photos, one a real movie poster and the other a photo representing what the plot is really all about…or at least what the person who made the meme thinks of the movie.
Needless to say, these memes are pretty hilarious and, if you don’t feel like actually reading movie reviews, it might be a good way to save yourself a little bit of time.
Let’s see what these armchair film critics have to say, shall we?
1. Remember this one?
A lot going on in this movie…

I haven’t seen all of those movies, but I will say that this meme is very entertaining and maybe gives me an idea of some flicks to stay away from.
How about you?
Have you seen any of these memes that you thought were especially funny or accurate?
