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.

a waste of my time
20 September 2002 | by Goon-2See all my reviews

Alright, I gave this film no chance, watched it only because it was on and Joe Jackson did the score and knew I wouldn't even keep it on the whole time, but still... sometimes films I intend to dislike ("Signs" is one) turn out to be quite good. This one was not.

William Baldwin, Kelly Lynch and Sherilyn Fenn play three annoying city patrons whose lives intertwine in the fact that Kelly Lynch(the most irritating of them all), a lesbian, broke up with her girlfriend (Fenn) and wants her friend (Baldwin who appears totally bored) to pretend to love her ex so that somehow Ms. Fenn will come racing back to her. Or something like that.

Watching this movie is about as exciting as reading the phonebook. The lines are dull; I've already singled out Herr Baldwin, but all of the actors seem rather listless and lackluster; the lighting is annoying; and the score that I tuned into the dumb thing exclusively to hear is HARD to hear(but sounded good) because the sound quality was not too hot, either. Finally, I just gave up watching. What a waste it was.
