Unforeseen Political fallout in famous movies.

"Love, Actually": You know why Kiera Knightly's husband didn't come to the door at the end of the film? He was too busy shitting his pants watching the special report on the telly about how the U.S. and Great Britain have ended their "special relationship". Why? Because the PM utterly embarassed President Billy Bob. One thing led to another and the PM probably gave as his reason, "I caught the President snogging my assistant whom I fancied."

"Return of the Jedi": I hope Naboo didn't spend too much money on those "Ding dong the witch is dead" fireworks...cause they're going to need to save every credit they can as they will rapidly find themselves shunned by the rest of the galaxy. So not only did the Emperor come from Naboo, but so did the senator who was responsible for granting him emergency powers....and a different senator married Darth Vader!!
