okay so that scene in the romance movies where the guy and the girl get together because they know they’re meant to be together, and you’re real happy and stuff for them – what about the sudden ex-boyf/ex-girlf of these protagonists? i mean, they really get undercut. we’re on the side of johnny and jennifer or whoever our main characters are, but they’ve got a lot of history to deal with now. jennifer just packed up and left harry. what does harry do? he doesn’t stop existing. we never really got his story. and what about mandy, johnny’s now-ex? is she heartbroken that johnny has gone through 98 minutes of plot and is now leaving her because he’s found his new true love? did he ever tell mandy that she was his true love? what the fuck do harry and mandy do now that they’re single, alone, heartbroken and the people they thought were in love with them are now riding off into the sunset without them? they just got dumped.
then again, i guess the movies that start off with someone being dumped have to come from somewhere.
okay never mind i figured it out.
