That is hilarious. (It is a little hard to read, I know. Larger version here.) There have to be other movies you can reverse-yuck-em-up like this. That is the game. Like, if you watch Pretty Woman backwards, it’s about a rich woman whose boyfriend makes her become a prostitute. If you watch Goonies backwards it’s about children leaving a perfectly good pirate ship to chase an Italian family through a scary maze. Play it at your next party! Turn the music off and ask everyone to be quiet and play this actually-more-complicated-than-it-seems-at-first game! (Via BuzzFeed.)
