..get more that he bargained

Hi,
I don't know who feels the same way but ::: could someone try to fix or change the rules to give a plot and helps stopping plotters to say things like : "he came back to his town and then get more that he bargained" ??? THAT absolutely means nothing and where those so plotters happened to think that it was helpful to know what the movie is about ???

How does this mean "absolutely nothing"? It is fairly common idiomatic English and anyone with even a decent understanding of American English expression (since IMDb is an American company) knows exactly what it means.

No it isn't. The more usual English expression is "more than he bargained for".

"more that he bargained for" doesn't make any sense

The Plot Summary actually says "He discovers more than he bargained for." not "He discovers more that he bargained for." That makes more sense than the subject or comments in this topic

Apparently so. I just read what people write here. I can't read minds
