I wish someone would show me a movie that starts a year after the couple has been together, when they have seen and dealt with all of the skeletons in the others closet!! I realize that the revelation/fight in Act II is what ultimately leads to happily-ever-after in Act III, but why not show us a romantic comedy that takes place after all of that has happened b/c when I watch a movie and I've been rooting for them the whole way, goddamnit I wanna see what happens after all of the fighting and making up, I wanna see them have kids and go through the 'terrible twos' so at least I feel vindicated that all of my rooting paid off... ok, yes, maybe I watch too many movies, but for someone like me who ultimately lives vicariously through other peoples' lives, it makes sense that I would wanna know what happens... I mean, hell, even the movie that I lifted that top line out of (Boys & Girls) didn't even show what happened to them after they got together... so, I don't know. Maybe Hollywood moguls can't deliver a movie like that b/c so little relationships in Hollywood make it out of the their first year... Maybe it's a case of life immitating art or vice versa.... All I know is that I don't think I can take this romantic comedy, everything is rosy, I-love-the-way-he-picks-his-nose-crap for much longer.
Abstracts are real, time is a lie.
