We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to describe a popular movie they've never seen. Here are the hilariously literal plotlines.

1. Tuck Everlasting (2002)

Buena Vista Pictures / Via

Tuck Everlasting is about a drag queen who finds magic tape, so when they go to use it to tuck, it stays forever. The rest of the movie is them struggling to try and get their "Tuck Everlasting" to come undone.

4. Planet of the Apes (1968)

20th Century Fox / Via

Planet of the Apes is about a planet full of apes. Charlton Heston calls them "Damn, dirty apes" because they're probably not good at cleaning. However, they don't appreciate Mr. Heston's rude criticism and punish him by blowing up the Statue of Liberty.

5. Blade Runner (1982)

Warner Bros. / Via

Blade Runner is definitely set in the future. It's about people who rollerblade everywhere. The main character is a black market rollerblade smuggler; can he maintain his successful business of moving the top quality Canadian blade product to the wealthy suburbs of the world renowned metropolis of Haiti? It's a life of parties, glamour, danger, violence, and intrigue. All for the blade.

7. Forrest Gump (1994)

Before I saw Forrest Gump, I thought it was a Christmas comedy about a grumpy guy who lived in the forest, cut down Christmas trees, and occasionally sat on a bench.

8. Memento (2000)

Summit Entertainment / Via

Memento is about this guy who has hella bad amnesia, and has to take pictures and keep a cute scrapbook to remind himself about what happened the days before. It's kind of like what Adam Sandler did for Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates, but not as cute. Anyway, I'm pretty sure he dies.

9. Dirty Dancing (1987)

Vestron Pictures / Via

I've never seen Dirty Dancing, but there's a woman named Baby, and she used to be punished a lot, so she refuses to stand in corners anymore.

10. Pulp Fiction (1994)

Miramax Films / Via

I imagine Pulp Fiction is about someone writing a book that involved a lot of orange juice.

11. Frozen (2013)

Walt Disney Pictures / Via

Frozen is about a kid who makes a face like a snowman when his sister slaps him on the back, and, you guessed it, his face is frozen like that for the rest of his life. He's pretty pissed off, but his sister sings him a song telling him to "Let it go" and he forgives her. Or kills her and melts, I really don't know.

Scarface is actually the prequel to The Lion King. The story follows Scar when he was a good guy. In this movie, we find out how he got his infamous scar and thus his total bad guy status.
