random question

can anyone think of any movies in which there is a breakup and it is left that way at the happily ever after? where there is not a new relationship by the end, the character in question just walks away on their own, and is happy? [sorry i forgot: and the other person is still alive. i'm sure some of us have wanted our exes to fall off the face of the earth but that's not really a good way to get over someone...]

also: why had i not bought any jethro tull albums until now? what have i been doing??

Doesn't Chasing Amy end with the stupid voice girl going out with another girl?

And did she preface her question with "Good Movie"?

Anytime you end up talking about movie endings, there's the hazard of...

*** WARNING, SPOILERS AHEAD ****

Okay, here we go:

Casablanca (1942)
We'll always have Paris. One of the best endings in the history of cinema.

Orlando (1992)
This one is technically a violation of the "other person is still alive" rule, since our title character is immortal, but death is certainly not the reason that (s)he ends up leaving them.

Star Wars IV, V, VI
Well, they weren't really dating, but Luke and Leia do get a big old kiss in one of the films. And, then, you know, he finds out about that whole sibling thing. D'oh.

Starman (1984)
It's been a million years since I've seen this, but doesn't he just go back to wherever the heck it was he came from, and leave her all glowy and pregnant, or something?

I'm sure I can think of more. I'll post again, if I do. ;)
