the break up...

i don't know if you've seen it but we own it. jen and vince. and i watched it again today. the last 1/3 of the movie i cried and cried. and i've seen it before many times!!! it's just too real life. we've all had arguments like this. "i want you to want to do the dishes!" (haven't we?) i don't think it got great reviews...i don't remember...but if you want to see a bittersweet movie about relationships with a lot of too real arguing...this is it. haha. anyways...where am i going with this? nearing the end, tim's chastising me for watching this movie ("it's too sad for you rebecca") he says, "well at least it's a happy ending." oh wait...umm...don't read this next part if you haven't seen it before and don't want me to spoil it for you.

anyways...tim says, "well at least it's a happy ending" and i say, "no it's not. they go their separate ways". he's like, "no - they look back at each other. they're going to end up together." and i'm like, "no! it's that awkward conversation where you say that you should catch up sometime and then you both know you're not going to. they're not going to get back together - it's over!" and tim continues to disagree.

so what do YOU think? c'mon - they're not getting together, are they? that was definitely not the vibe. or am i just a pessimistic person who likes the bittersweet endings to movies instead of lame happy endings? let me know. i need some back up.

There is NO WAY they are getting back together! That's my vote.

that's the whole point of this ending...it is what you want it to be. they ended it a different way at first but the reviews came back from the pre-screenings and they had to change it. so there you go. stop fighting you two!

I don't think they end up together... I think they've both gotten to a place where they can be civil with each other, but where they've realized they are better off apart.

This argument is just too real... and bittersweet... and I hope it ends happily!

Your all wrong and I don't want to speak to you ever again.

The point is definately that they are going to get back together - they love each other - they just needed some space to grow up and realize what it really means and distance themselves from the awful things they did to each other.

who is anonymous??

Though I did have the same impression Tim did...that something would start again. Who knows??

I also did love this movie & it definitely made me bawl. Like you said it's too real & you're hurting for both of them as they continually hurt one another. But must say, the Tone Rangers at the end (or was it from the alternative ending??) really did it for me. Too funny.
