Movie Clip Wednesday – Worst Ending to a Movie

Okay, I know that I might incur the wrath of most women with my choice here, but I just don’t like this movie.  Never have. I think it is insipid, unrealistic, demeaning to women, stupid with an even more stupid ending, and let’s face it, just unlikeable characters. 
Except for the introduction to the world of a really young and super hot Brad Pitt as the bad boy Geena Davis falls for one night (and who can blame her) …. my worst ending to a movie is

Thelma & Louise

But I did find this homage to Brad Pitt (“JD”) in the movie, which is quite entertaining.  Mostly because they have muted the dialogue and put in some steamy music to accompany steamy views of Brad.  Now, this I can enjoy.

Stop talking, Brad, and show us your arse! When he walks away from the car in those jeans... or when he's hardly wearing the jeans, those abs. You're a bad woman for showing me such images before 10am. Now Im going to lose an hour out of my day ;P

Oh, sorry, I'm meant to be commenting on the ending but, just right now, I dont care if two women drove off a cliff, this is a great film just for the way they showcased Brad :)

Oh, to be young, dumb, and full of . . . Brad Pitt :o)

I agree with you on the ending, however. Preposterous. As female empowerment movies go, this was lame-o. For that, one simply cannot beat Kill Bill I and II. Here, there's some gorgeous desert scenery and some wicked gun play, but that's about it.

Never saw it and I'm sure I'll type that a lot today. Always thought GD was attractive. Why weren't there any cars in front of them? Or a chopper?

well i kind of like the movie once thelma gets comfortable with a gun. especially making the bad ol highway patrol man cry. hee hee

brad pitt used to be hot. now he has been sucked into the black hole angelina. at least he shaved off that mohammed shite on his face.

a better ending wouldve been thelmas husband being gang raped by rabid wet opossums/

happy MCW

I liked this movie, but never thought the ending was realistic. Why can't you shoot a douche and NOT be in trouble for it? Good cast, however and I think I'd like to watch again.

Chickory's comment made me spit out my coffee.

I have to agree that I didn't like the ending on this movie. A good lawyer could have gotten them probation if they gave up instead of them having to drive off a cliff. I think if I were in a similar situation and my friend put his foot on the gas to drive us off a cliff, I'd beat the crap out of him before we got there. That's just me.

Happy MCW!

Joanna: Thanks for appreciating!

Moi: Glad you can agree on this movie -- I thought I was the only one who had issues with it!

MRM: Just one of hte lame things about this flick.

Chickie: Any of them being raped by a possum would have been more interesting.

Boxie: Exactly. My feelings exactly. It was all self defense and make-my-day kind of stuff!

Buzzy: Ha, yep,never drive your friends off a cliff. Words I live by.
