Okay, for those who missed the comment in the subject header, there WILL be spoilers in this thread. My big beef was with the end, so it will be a supremo spoiler. If you don’t want to know, go away now.
I mean it!
Okay, now that they’re gone…I can’t believe they had him just walk away from Kelly. Talk about an anticlimactic ending! “You’re the love of my life.” Pause. “Well, I have to go back to my house and other life now, even though my life is a hollow shell of what it was before you crahsed.” Pause. Jack goes away, and continues delivering Fed Ex. [Homer]BOR-ING![/Homer]
Now look, I know that realistically, Kelly would quite possibly be married…but it isn’t a given. Hell, I have a friend whose hubby died of cancer three years ago, and she hasn’t even thought about dating since. It’s a potential possibility that she hadn’t moved on. So there.
I’m just pissed that the film called on me to suspend reality enough while he was on the island–such as the liklihood that he would have gotten sick, an infection (esp. from that highly bacteria-laden coral), salmonella from eating raw fish, massive absess from ripping that tooth out of his mouth, etc. Four years of that, and his body basically gets a solid tan and long (and lighter) hair, period. Um…yeah. Then, he comes home–the part I was looking forward to the whole frickin’ flick–and finds out, oh well, that chick he dreamed about for four years is no longer there for him.
Really, I liked it better when he was on the island. (And btw, anyone else hear about how Wilson (the company) was going to come out with a volleyball with that had the bloody handprint face on it? Weird.)
Other thoughts about this film?
