Default Movies: That would have been better with a poly ending.

I think there are many, many unrequited love and lack of communication movies where either the whole movie could have been avoided or the ending could have been much better if someone could toss a polyamory grenade onto the set at a strategic point in the film.

This is a thread for speculating how various movies would have been different/better with a polyamorous plot twist.

Go.

(if any mods want to move this to general discussion, it probably belongs there moreso than here.)

Excalibur - probably my all time favorite movie.

Ha. I've just recently read Mists of Avalon. The Arthurian Legend would certainly be a VERY different story with an explicitly polyamorous plot twist. I remember watching Excalibur dozens of times in my teens, but I don't really remember the particulars about the film anymore.

(edit: I just YouTubed a bit of it. Fun times.)

When I was a kid, I thought Star Wars would have been.... until I found out Luke and Leia were siblings.

But the Dark Knight would have been more interesting if the love triangle had played out differently. That is all I can think of for now.

The movie "Frida" and Frida Kahlo's life DOES have poly themes in it. It doesn't play out as a PURE IDEAL poly situation, but it was a real-life type situation. Maybe Frida's husband Diego Rivera was something of a womanizer, but both of them stayed together while carrying on relationships with other people.

I just looked up at my DVD's and that was the first one I saw that fit the description of this topic.

I watched the film "My Best Friend's Wedding" back when I was a newly Polyamorous person, and desperately wanted to drop a Polybomb into that whole mess and have a happily ever after. It was agonizing.

Quath -=- I used to be conflicted about the whole Luke - Leia - Han thing too. Until RoTJ was released.

Object of My Affection. Definite poly potential in that one.
Now I'm not sure which relationship it would have fit in or if they should have just added another relationship, but Love Actually could have added that aspect. They do include what appears to be an orgy at one point and they do touch on infidelity and the friend being in love with his best friend's girl...but nothing more than that.

Exclamation Hmmmmm

"Princess Bride"

She could have had all of the three leads as husbands. Just think ladies - A Pirate - A Spanish Swordman - & A Giant.

What more could you ask for?

Just Me,
Tim
