Nothing can ruin a movie more than a badly written summary. But by bringing a cinema masterpiece from hero to zero, a bad summary can be a work of art in itself. Just think of The Matrix described as a movie about a guy who switches up his medication and dodges a literal bullet. (Weird eyerolls).

Today, we selected some of the best of the worst examples that you can scroll through below, upvote your favorites and be sure to share your versions of #DescribeAMovieBadly in the comments!
