Twitter called Jurassic Park a Rom-Com and fans are more than a little bit confused by this argument. Sunday is always a weird day for trending topics. (Heck, most days that end in 'Y' are weird days for trending topics.) But, arguing that the beloved movie is a romantic comedy smacks of the infamous Die Hard as a Christmas movie debate. With everyone infinitely more online than ever, we get these sort of strange takes more frequently by the week. Could this be another case of Twitter's algorithms making a strange decision that they weren't aware of? Probably, but more likely it was shaped by the user's interactions with the topic on a broad scale. (People thirsting after Jeff Goldblum notwithstanding.) Check out some of the very valid confusion down below.

It's been a while since I've seen Jurassic Park, but I don't remember it being romantic, or a comedy. pic.twitter.com/AAlqnrxhL2— History Rebel (@History_Rebel) June 27, 2021
