Twitter thread discusses the most bizarre things about popular movies that no one talks about

When a movie is good, it’s pure, plot-hole-less entertainment. But when it’s not — those problematic scenes and details can weigh on a person for a long, long time.

On Sunday, On Sunday, Twitter user @jazz_inmypants tweeted: ‘Everyone please share something that bothered u about a movie that isn’t talked about enough.’

His prompt has earned thousands of replies, with social media users pointing out issues in films like Dirty Dancing, Willy Wonka, The Parent Trap, The Santa Clause, The Lion King, and more.

While some the problems — like Willy Wonka’s Grandpa Joe being ‘too weak’ to get out of bed and help earn a living until the moment Charlie finds a Golden ticket — have been the stuff of internet rage for years, many others have clearly missed the noticed of viewers until now.

One thing is certain, though: It’ll be impossible to watch these films going forward with seeing these troublesome aspects.
