Everyone loves a happy ending! Well, no, not everyone. Especially not indie film directors and cable TV show creators, who often prefer to keep their characters' fates undecided in their final moments.
Lucky for us, the kind folks at College Humor have nicely resolved some of film and TV's most infamous ambiguous endings. The video below hilariously tackles Bill Murray's mysterious whisper to Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation, The Sopranos' James Gandolfini's fatal night at the diner, and three more 'did-they-or-didn't-they' moments. (We would have added one more: Thelma and Louise landing that convertible safely on the other side of the Grand Canyon.)
Okay, now if you've finished laughing and you're still pondering those endings, here are some helpful links:
