    Yeah I could see why some people didn't like the ending. It's a bit tacky I guess, but I wish they used ANYONE ELSE for the role of Autumn. ANYONE ELSE. God, a house plant with a decorative wreath could act better than her. ECK!

    I think I mentioned earlier in the thread why I didn't like the ending.......had nothing to do with the actress. But yeah, no one seems to like the ending...

    Sorry, I must've missed it the first time I read through the thread.

    I agree with you - that would've made the movie better for him to just get the job. Having the love cycle repeat felt a little too contrived and unrealistic. I'm just exaggerating my disgust for the actress for comic effect, but I still think she was bad enough to be distracting.

    Well, don't infer more than what the ending shows you! It doesn't necessarily mean the cycle repeats itself, it could also mean he found a new love, or the possible woman for him to be always with... What I find as a true meaning is a new beginning, nobody is really sure if the cycle repeats itself... I'm just saying that you should consider the other possibilities due to lack of information...

    Oops. Sorry. Bad choice of words on my part. I didn't mean the cycle repeats itself but rather I think it's a bit disruptive to introduce another potential plotline at the end of a movie - but that doesn't stop Hollywood from doing it all the time. It just makes the entire movie less cohesive and unified than if they had just stayed faithful with the Tom and Summer relationship. It would have been nice at the end to see that Tom has moved on with his life with a new found understanding of himself and his relationships, and has decided to focus his energies on a different aspect of his life - namely, career. But instead, there's this new girl that's introduced in the end and it's like, "Oh, how cute. She used to date summer, now she's dating autumn."

    Eh, would you like some wine to go with that cheese?

    It's kind of like building a Rolls Royce to perfection. I mean the paint has a great finish, all the engine parts are clean and new, the interior is spotless and dustfree - every detail comes together to form one beautifully cohesive automobile.

    But then someone decides to put a bumper sticker on the back that says "I <3 pussy."

    Kind of ruins the car, right?

    To me, it was the idea that finding another romantic interest was going to make it all better, as opposed to him becoming whole as a single person. I'd prefer to see him heal on his own, which he sort of did, but getting the job and ending it there would have emphasized that & provided a better ending, IMO. He would find his own happiness in reaching a personal goal, instead of being dependent on some idealized relationship.

    First, I don't believe Hollywood was behind this production. It was an independent film, but either way, I believe the artistic point can be extrapolated for humor. If he would've went on to get the job, and it ended, I believe that wouldn't have really translated wide enough forthe message. In the end, he returns to his old ways, didn't learn a damn thing, while the audience should have after watching the character go through all sorts of hell trying to find romance. This was the reality of romance story, that was what they were trying to sell, nothing else and nothing less. To have that suppoed contrived ending doesn't seem very contrive to me at all.

    In my experience, my friends and brother being prime example, romantic folks go about doing this all their life and never realize the troubles they keep heading for. Not to say they are wrong, just not all that sound, so it can be very humorous take on standard subject, meanwhile refreshing.

    I think the expectation here, looking at the film as a whole and objective of the production, is a bit unwarranted. Look at similiar films on the subject, that took a refreshing, more realistic view on Love and Relationships, such as High Fidelity and Swingers. John Cuasck in Fidelity ends up back with the girl to prove the point that relationships in the pass teach us what is important...or should. Swingers had the guy walking in the sunset alone with his buddies like Casablanca's Humphrey Bogart. These films were powered by a very relatable main character for the man of that time, the average guy, or the markets guy, so they end for those relating to the character.

    Umm... Well, they probably were behind! No real way to prove it, besides, they would have been able to change the ending if they wanted to...
