Something I Should Write More About ...

By admin Published: August 22, 2007

I've lost track of how long I've been meaning to write a column about movie (and possibly TV) romances where the wrong couple ends up together. Not a situation where, as happens on TV, the wrong couple is together but breaks up a season later, but ones where the whole thing ends and you're just going, that's so wrong.

Among the items on my list: "Reality Bites," since Ben Stiller was obviously the best guy for Winona Ryder; "Gentleman's Agreement," where Celeste Holm was by every measure the better woman for Gregory Peck, and "Pretty in Pink," where Molly Ringwald should have ended up with Jon Cryer -- and the original script for the movie apparently had it that way, before the final product wimped out and went with the more crowd-pleasing, pretty-boy ending. Not that I'm bitter about it or anything. But you can see how I think there's more to talk about.

Any other suggestions? Or do you disagree with mine?
