Well. He WAS kind of dead before the midpoint of the movie.

Object of My Affection - definitely.

Henry & June


I recently watched "Three Men and a Little Lady" for the 1st time. In the first half of the film, I'm thinking, "Cool! An older mainstream film showing a functional poly household, with a kid!" The mom totally acts like she is married to all three of them, and it works extremely well. The men are best friends and even act like they're married to each other at times. The little girl is obviously very well adjusted. Everyone communicates well, supports each other, etc. There is patience, love, humor and kindness. They are an awesome family. Then one day the woman freaks out about sex and starts going on about needing something normal, and runs off to marry the first loser who asks her! The film makes it clear that she is about to completely screw up her kid's life permanently. The man she was about to marry had no respect for her and was lying to her. Of course, Hollywood has one of the other 3 men decide he loves her, and they get married instead. Huh? What about the other 2 men she loves who also love her? That damn film seriously needed a poly bomb to be tossed right into the middle of that shit. It was obvious that a poly situation would have been the best thing for everyone involved, and even better - they would have all been cool with it!

Default Sex and the City Movie

Samantha and Smith Jarrod... enter # 3, etc. At least an open relationship would have been totally hot!

Four Feathers - with Keith Ledger. It's about the British Army.
And I always seem to find the poly spin on any movie we watch that involves more then two adults.

I loved the 3 Men & A baby, little lady.

LOL!!!! Yes! I guess she would have had it covered for life.


Hmmm... I'm not sure I know of any movies I would have changed to have a poly-ending.

The Star Trek Episode of 'Amok Time' could have been absolutely riviting with a poly ending... o_o

IDK That last MOVIE is saw was 'This is It'. And poly would have made that really interesting. (All adults people... Head in the gutter is one thing. Under the sewage truck with your mouth open is another...)

The Bridge of Madison County!

High Fidelity. Top 5? All 5!

Just watched the new movie "2012" in the theatre.

There is a love triangle: Dad (divorced), Mom (remarried) and Stepdad.

At several points, it is shown that Dad & Mom still love each other. Dad & Stepdad start out with a kind of tepid animosity, but gradually gain a solid respect for each other, forged even deeper by shared adversity.

Sounds like a good foundation for a happy poly ending, right?

Nah, this is Hollywood!

Without spoiling the movie, I was quite disappointed with how the love triangle was resolved...

I was listening to the song "The Girl is Mine" by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney yesterday and thinking 'Man, this is a stupid song'
