For film and TV lovers, Netflix is an oasis. It's also confounding AF. Have you ever watched Scandal and then had Netflix recommend you watch Beyonce: Baby and Beyond, an unauthorized biography? Or watched a movie found in the Comedy section only to be ugly crying for two hours? Sometimes movies on Netflix are not as they appear, as the below 17 movies on Netflix that are nothing like you'd expect show loud and clear. These films will have you wondering why we even bother classifying movies in the first place.
Wether it's a misleading plot description, a strange photo, or a misidentified genre, Netflix has been known to give viewers a bit of a false impression when it comes to movies. Mismatched plot descriptions might lead you to believe you're watching a romantic comedy, when really you have a one-way ticket to heartbreak city and will be spending the rest of your night cuddling up to a box of tissues. (You know, hypothetically speaking, of course.) Or recommendations based on your previous viewings might come out of nowhere — like watching This Is Spinal Tap and being recommended Schindler's List. It's one of the quirky things we've had to learn to love about Netflix, and never has that quality been more on display than with these nine Netflix movies that are nothing like you'd expect.
