Plot twists in movies go together like peanut butter and a knife! See, wasn’t that sentence a lot more interesting with a twist? Did it make sense? Who cares! It was exciting and fun. and if you paid $12.50 to hear it, who gives a damn if it makes sense as long, as it keeps you entertained long enough for you to forget how little sense it makes? That’s the basic rule for most movie plot twists – in retrospect it doesn’t need to make a lot of sense, as long as it’s fun in a moment. Like a roller coaster made of spiders. Or Legoland. There doesn’t need to be logic – it just needs to be.

That said, some plot twists go a little weird and hard and show that occasionally, if you just put enough words on a page, eventually someone will pay you for it even if it doesn’t have any logic in it or show proof that no one then there’s read it. 

Here’s a bunch of plot twists from some of your favorite movies that prove Hollywood makes even less sense on screen than behind. But these are your favorite movies, who cares about logic? Look at the pretty lights go ping-twing.
