Which movie-ending would you like to change?

There are so many movies that have a shit ending. Is there any movie, where you would like to change the ending?

there is a movie with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman(far and away?) and at the end cruise fells from a horse and seems to be death and you think what a sad ending and then he suddenly opens his eyes again, that ruins the whole movie!

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Definately - the biggest feel good movie gone wrong, EVER - Pay if Forward.

Its a wonderful, heart warming movie, if you take out the last half hour of it. You leave the theatre thinking good things happen to those who deserve it - good people.

Put in the last half hour and its a pile of crap, with little point. Leave the theatre afer seeing the ending, and you feel like crap thinking - good things don't happen to good people - even those who try to make the world a better place for everyone else get fucked in the end.

I was seriously dissapointed with that movie. it was like they didn't know how to end it so came up with something stupid

I'm sure there are others but I just watched this the other night so it's fresh in my mind.... in the rage: carrie 2 , it's pathetic at the end... actually it's a weird movie because you know it's obviously not going to be a romantic movie or anything like that but then there is a love story going on and I for one thought it was really cute but then at the end she dies... and then she just cracks... *shudders* that was weird...

Also, Titanic lol.... Leo should of lived lol

I have to agree that Pay it Forward has the worst ending ever, I am a Helen Hunt fan and walk in hoping to see a feel good movie, when I finish watching I was thinking, 'why does that boy has to die? There 's no reason for it.' It seems like the director just put a tragic ending to make it more dramatic.

I hated the ending of L.A. Confidential, and I think it wrecked the movie. The whole movie was about evil and corruption, and how it takes over everything. Yet, the leads have a happy Hollywood ending. B.S.! The two guys should have died in the shoot out and Kim Basinger's character killed. That was the mood of the movie, and that was the appropriate ending. Think back to Chinatown, same mood, etc., proper ending. I think for this reason, L.A. Confidential will not age as well as Chinatown, though Chinatown was done a whole lot better.

And for film buffs out there who remember Chinatown, the original script had Dunaway doing a little time in jail and then running off to Mexico "in love" with Nicholson and her daughter. Polanski changed the ending. The movie would have been terrible with the original ending, not worthy of its entire story!

I would have changed the ending to "Armageddon", so that instead of being blown up in space, the asteroid would have impacted the earth at several thousand miles per hour, landing directly on Celine Dion's house.

I'd like that ending also, but Mariah Carey and the Spice Girls (the group, not the tennis duo) would have to be visiting Celine at the time. And Charo, too, she was with Celine at the time! Plus, all copies of "Glitter" are on the premises at the time.

Sorry to Mariah fans, it's just not my kind of music. No apologies for the Spice Girls and Charo, though.....

I'd change the ending to Titanic as well, and sink the damn boat after three minutes not three hours .

God I've never been so bored .

I didn't have to think too hard with this one:
Mimic

I was surprised by amused I was when I first saw it. I thought it was really good...

BUT THAT ENDING!!!

I wish they picked out more randomly who was going to die and who wasn't. All they had to do was either knock out the autistic boy or the Jeremy Northam character.

The real kicker was when they all hugged at the end. YAK!

Whenever I watch the movie again I cut it off before the Northam character re-emerges and pretend that he died.

I browse once in a while.

independence day should have had another ending too, will smith should have been lost in space and not have been back again
that would have saved the movie

@ people think Pay It Forward is worst ending movie ever BUT... I might remind you again that the movie is true story? That what people who work in the movie say in newspaper! I was shock but I agree with you that the ending movie was worst.

Well... Force of Nature is worst ending movie ever I seen! Why Ben and Sally don't stay together?! LOL!
