What Movie Plot Twist Was So Poorly Executed, You Actually Guessed It Before It Happened?

There's foreshadowing, and then there's...well, whatever the heck this is.

There are few things in life more satisfying than a perfectly executed movie plot twist you never saw coming — and few things more disappointing than a terrible one you guessed in the first five minutes.


Heck, maybe you even guessed the twist FROM THE MOVIE'S TRAILER.

So, with that in mind, what's a movie plot twist that was so poorly executed, you (or someone you know) actually guessed the "twist" before it even happened?

Maybe you knew in your soul that they'd take the lyrics of the song literally, and you guessed the whole "heart transplant" twist in Last Christmas (2019) long before it was revealed to the main character.

Or perhaps you jokingly said to your pals that Rey would end up being a Palpatine after you saw The Force Awakens (2015), only for that to become canon in The Rise of Skywalker (2019).

Heck, maybe you're the only other person on Earth besides my sister (true story) who guessed that Bruce Willis was dead the whole time at the very beginning of The Sixth Sense (1999).
