Nice! I really love that movie. I usually only watch the first thirty minutes of most romantic films. Right up until the happy montage, and before everything goes to hell in a muddle of misunderstanding, betrayal or infidelity. I certainly don't stick around for the end and prefer to turn it off while everything is still on a high and go: Gee, what a fun little movie. So nice to see that those crazy kids got together...

Cold Comfort Farm breaks the mould rather nicely. It starts out hopeful, gets better, improves all round for everybody and then finished with a big woohoo. :D
