Scott Pilgrim vs the World.
On the blu-ray, there's a "alternative ending" where he chose the other girl instead. I thought "well why not try to get both?" LOL
(Though to be fair, his roomie had true poly adventures, as seen in the bed scene. )

Yes I have unfortunatly read the whole series (I read everything my kids read) and until that twist kicks in it would have worked and been a very interesting relationship indeed.

(edit: I just YouTubed a bit of it. Fun times.)
I read that book too, and I think a polyamorus relationship was vaguely hinted at, even in other accounts of the story.

This is the way I would have written it. Guinevere loves both men and King Aurthur is actually gay and loves Sir Lancelot more than the woman, who is really just a good friend. He is more of a father figure to her. Lancelot develops a deep love for both the King and Guinevere. This triangle is complicated and dramatic because there is jealousy involved and secrecy.

For a happy ending Lancelot impregnates Guinevere and they pretend the son is the offspring of the King. He inherits the crown and becomes a flaming gay King in tights and redecorates the palace.

You know I watched that with my previous partner and was thinking the same thing at that point. I think that film may have been on of the little kicks to get me closer into polyamory now I think about it.

I thank thee, Scott Pilgrim. =P

LMAO - that is awesome

I remember the version i first read of the Arthurian legend actually had Guinevere, Lancelot and Arthur in a poly style configuration. Arthur deferred to Guinevere's love and need for Lancelot (though she continued to sleep and (I assume) have 'relations' with Arthur). The situation was discovered by Arthurs illegitimate son and because of the laws of the nation Arthur was forced to sentence Guinevere to death for 'high treason' and banish Lancelot from the realm. Lancelot rescued Guinevere from the flames and she was sent to a convent to live out her remaining days, Lancelot then aquiesced to his banishment... and Arthurs downfall proceeded. (extremely basic synopsis of plot)

Unfortunately I do not remember the title nor the author. If anyone else has read this version and does remember - could they let me know? as I would like to get a copy again.

Default no strings attached?

how about the new movie coming out, No Strings Attached? it seems like they are using a spur of the moment open relationship to leat to "bigger and better things" how about just keeping it how it is in the beginning?

Movies that could of had a poly ending, or at least offer an alternative other than the mono norm.

Is it fine to add TV shows in the mix?

A lot of manga, and their adaptations, have love triangles. I've been watching the Korean version of Boys Before Flowers on Hulu (I've seen the Japanese one already) and keep thinking polyamory would help so much! There is an obvious N in the story.

I've also been watching flashforward, and I don't know how it ends, but I doubt that is does with the poly vee I have been rooting for from the start of the show.

For one, this is a great thread idea. Really, hats off.

My nomination is The Kids Are Alright. Why can't Mark Ruffalo and Julianne Moore and Annette Bening all live in one big happy poly family? Frustrates me.
