I’m seeing a lot of romantic movies lists today, and I’m absolutely loving them. But they bring to my mind the romantic movies I loved…until the ends. So, without further ado:
Shannon’s Top 5 List of Worst Romantic Movie Endings:
5. Last of the Mohicans
Two minutes, Uncas. Just two freakin minutes.
4. Forces of Nature
I don’t care if it was the right ending. I fell in love with this couple for that?
3. Sweet Home Alabama
He should have killed her and fed her to the dog. Pairing the most unlikeable heroine since Scarlett with that sweet guy was just wrong wrong wrong.
2. You’ve Got Mail
Gee, we’ve written our couple into a no-win situation. Let’s throw in a last-minute desire she (and we) never knew she had so nobody notices the hero squashed her like a bug.
And the number one worst romantic movie ending:
1. City of Angels
What the hell was that about? Next time you write a beautiful, touching movie, you bastards, don’t flush your freakin Prozac before The End.
But, lest you think me cynical, my favorite all-time romantic movie is Hope Floats. It makes me laugh. It makes me cry. And at the end I sigh and think “and they lived Happily Ever After.”
