    Yuck.

    Quite possibly the worst ending to an "Oscar contender" ever ??

    But really the whole movie, yuck.

    I could barely stand to sit through the preview in the theater.

    I can get my wife to yell at me for free, thanks.

    Read the Richard Yates novel. It still packs a sizeable wallop after almost fifty years.

    That honor will belong to "No Country for Old Men" for the foreseeable future.

    That was the ending in the book, like it or not.

    Doesn't make it a good ending.

    Won't argue with that. It's a very literary ending.

    Needed a shootout for the big screen.

    Sorry, what was the problem with the ending?

    Waiting for a bootlegged preview copy. Will report, eventually.

    Here's a more in-depth explanation as to why the end to NCFOM sucked that I wrote on here shortly after seeing it:

    There was plenty of solid criticism for this movie on the original thread. I'll direct you there and bow out of this one. http://www.sportsjournalists.com/forum/threads/49120/

    There is a screener of Revolutionary Road out there on the net. I've downloaded it, but haven't watched it. The subject matter and the reviews don't have it too high on my list even though both actors are among the best working...
