Someone mentioned Sam And Jared Smith from the Sex and the City movie...I totally agree! I don't know why Samantha never considered poly an option, anyway.

Also, why couldn't Carrie have a poly Vee with Big and Aidan? They got a along in a previous episode.

Also, about the Arthurian Legends; the two oldest known authors of the legends are Chretien of Troy and Sir Thomas Malory. In Malory's version, Lancelot loves Guinevere and has relations with her, and King Arthur HAS to be aware of it, but because he loves Lancelot as a knight and companion and also loves Guinevere, he allows their relationship to continue...very poly, especially for the 1400's.

Oh, did you see the TV movie Mists of Avalon with Julianna Margulies? Might be found online somewhere, divided up into parts. Great, hot scene with Guinevere in bed with both Arthur and Lancelot.

I'm so glad someone mentioned "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World." I completely thought that at the time. I mean why force a choice?
The first movie that came to mind for me however was "Imagine Me and You." Don't get me wrong... Piper Perabo is hot and when she has that realization that she's a lesbian you can see her face transform (one of the best moments captured on film).
That said... Her fiance was totally broken-hearted and you could tell that she loved him in her way. I think it would have been better if instead of running off with the other girl they just threw some poly in there and everyone wins.
It really hurt to see that guy get crushed (even though the end was still awesome), but I wanted everyone to have their cake and eat it too.
Side note: Why do people say that like it's a negative thing sometimes? Have their cake and eat it too. I mean- what the hell else are you expecting someone to do with cake once they have it? Every time I buy cake it's only for one purpose- so I can eat it!

I've never seen "Imagine Me And You". But I may give it a download and watch. =]

It's a pet peeve of mine whenever someone says this, so please don't mind me...

What that saying means is that someone still wants their cake after they've eaten it. You want to have your cake (hold on to it) and eat it too (gobble it up). It's a comment on greed and being spoiled. Even though you have this good thing and use it up you still want it, as if it's an endless supply. Perhaps it is more obvious if you reverse it: "I want to eat my cake and have it too."

The French equivalent is "to have the butter and the butter money". The meaning is clearer. If you want to understand the English saying, try reversing it: "you can't eat your cake and still have it".
Still, nothing says you're not allowed to get two cakes >.>

Default Cast Away

I was in my peak poly-blossom when I saw Cast Away for the 2nd time a year and a half ago (saw it when it was released, too, but didn't reflect around the possible poly theme then).

This time I found myself feeling furious about the fact that Tom's caracter had to leave the love of his life cause she was married with children while he was away, presumed dead.

Her new hubby seemed to be understanding of their love and he acted kindly in the siuation, but there was no question about it... Tom had to go..
I felt so puzzled at the time, and I had to laugh at myself.

The film would have been so much nicer, I think, with a poly ending..

I never thought about "Cast Away" but that one would; have been a very good Poly movie. Especially they did loosely imply that the child was Tom's not the other fellows.
