    Can You Recognize Movie Plots When They're Described As Relationship Advice Posts?

    "My (22 F) boyfriend (22 M) dumped me so I decided to become a lawyer."

    Before we start, you're going to need to know about r/relationships. It's a community on Reddit where people (mostly) anonymously share their relationship problems, and people offer advice.

    reddit.com

    (The advice is usually "DUMP YOUR TERRIBLE BOYFRIEND" or something along those lines.)

    Got it? Right, so Twitter user @kyleauxren asked their followers to describe the plot of their favorite movie in the style of an r/relationships post, and the responses are kinda like a fun little quiz.
