Alternate Versions

The two alternate ending differ from the point the nurse brings Joe a wheelchair:
  • "Happy ending": Connie pushes Joe in the wheelchair down a corridor. She tells him to treat Ellen right and not to invite her to their wedding. "You'll try to kiss me [..] it will be a nightmare." Joe waits for Ellen outside her class and walks with her down the street. Finally he says: I love you. "I'm not gonna chase you.", "Give you time." Ellen gets into the backseat of a cab. Joe says "Fuck this" and runs after the cab yelling Ellen! We see Ellen in the cab, after the fourth Ellen! she tells the cabdriver to stop. Joe gets into the cab. They kiss. Cut to street and closing credits start as camera pulls up to the tree tops and street buildings. Fade to black.
  • Un-Happy ending: Omits the wheelchair sequence, jumps right to Joe waiting for Ellen outside class. Same scene: From Joe walking with her down the street to Ellen getting into the backseat of the cab and Joe saying "Fuck this" and running after the cab yelling Ellen! We see Ellen in the cab; After the fourth Ellen! Joe gives up. Cab drives away. Connie appears out of nowhere. "I could have caught that cab in heels." Joe and Connie talk. She agrees to get Ellen back for him. They walk into the park, Connie asks him not to invite her to their wedding. "You'll try to kiss me [..] it will be a nightmare." He says: It'll be romantic and Sting's Shape of My Heart starts playing and continues through all the credits up to the copyright logo. Shape of My Heart by Sting credit appears right after the cast list and before music supervisor.

Surprisingly good
15 April 1999 | by Hollywood-3See all my reviews

I saw Three of Hearts cos a friend of mine recommended it, and since I'm not a sucker for romantic comedies...it took a lot of sweet talking on her part to make me watch the movie. Anyway, I finally picked up a copy and actually ended up watching the entire movie with great interest. I thought Sherilyn Fenn looked cute throughout, and Baldwin on occasions, looked reasonably good. However, it was the extremely underrated Kelly Lynch who came out shining on all accounts. The story...Lynch and Fenn are lovers who are going through a temporary seperation, mainly at Fenn's insistence. Lynch is madly in love with Fenn, so she hires Baldwin, who plays a 'male escort' to seduce Fenn, and then break her heart so she could come back to Lynch! Confusing huh?! Well, the plot sounds pretty weird to be true...but hey..you never know!! Anyhow, a thoroughly enjoyable movie, made far better due to excellent work by Kelly Lynch.
