Movies backwards

Posted: May 21, 2011 in Words

A couple of weeks ago I got into a Twitter conversation with a friend about what movies would look like if you watched them backwards. Here are some gems I thought of:

If you watch Titanic backwards, a ship rises from the ocean, rescues thousands, and then a girl dumps her poor boyfriend for a rich guy.

If you watch Napoleon Dynamite backwards, a popular dancer loses an election, his girlfriend, and his best friend before being forced to sit at the back of the bus.

If you watch The Sandlot backwards, a baseball announcer for the Dodgers reminisces about the summer his best friends kicked him off the neighborhood baseball team.

If you watch Inception backwards, people keep waking up from dreams and it’s still confusing as crap.

If you watch A Christmas Carol backwards, a generous old man gets haunted by ghosts and turns into a jerk because of it.

If you watch Jack backwards, it’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Your turn to give it a shot. If you watch __________ backwards, it’s __________.

  1. Mindi Lynn says:

    If you watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory backwards, a good child gets a grand prize taken away, bad children are saved from horrible accidents, and the good kid becomes sad and poor.

  2. If you watched “Sleepless in Seattle” backwards, a little kid looses his mother figure / dad’s girlfriend on the Empire state building. Goes to Seattle alone, dad quickly following. The dad struggles to date while morning the death of his wife until his wife is raised from the dead and they all live happily ever after again.

  3. Martha says:

    If you watch Dirty Dancing backward, it’s the story of how extra-marital relations ruined a girl’s promising dance career.

  4. Josh I says:

    If you watch Dumb and Dumber backwards two moronic highschool friends take a briefcase full of IOU’s and fill it with money, so they can drive across country to bring it to a crush, where they end up with no food, jobs, and their pet’s heads fall back on. To quickly getting jobs as a limo driver, and pet groomer.

    If you watch Charlotte’s Web backwards you will watch a spider go from superb writer and crate traveler, to being an illiterate and bored spider in a barn.

  6. I mostly read this from someone else… but if you watch 127 Hours backwards it is about a disabled man who finds an arm in the desert.
