Gallery: Our 10 Favorite ‘If You Watch It Backwards…’ Movie Memes

"If you watch it backwards" 127 Hours Harry Potter The Grey The Room Mean Girls

Here is an internet meme that will never die: “If you watch x backwards, it is about y…” We wrote about this meme months ago, when funny folks online showed us just how much our favorite movies and TV shows meant something entirely different when told in reverse. And when a recent r/askreddit thread popped up reviving the joke, we couldn’t resist picking out our favorites! So, check out our gallery for James Franco, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Hemsworth, Lindsay Lohan, and more stars like you’ve never seen them before.

I can’t take credit for any of these; I just copied and pasted the Redditors’ amazing text. So I’ve cited the Redditor on each slide. Thanks for the LOLs, guys!

    “If you watch Superman backwards, it is about a guy who flies around, putting people into precarious situations, then hiding.”
    Hahaha. Thank you for showing me this meme.

    My favorite has always been “If you watch Jaws backwards, it’s about a shark that throws up so many people, they have to open a beach.”
