WARNING: A couple spoilers posted below.
If you haven’t already, make sure you check out parts one and two of our Favorite Movie Endings feature, in which we paid tribute to the finales of 40 films ranging from The 40-Year-Old Virgin to Vertigo and more. As our staff brainstormed for the movies to include, we quickly realized that there are way too many awesome endings to organize them into one of those definitive EW countdowns you know and (mostly) love. So instead we picked our personal favorites…no judgments!
Still, there were a few goodies that we remembered too late. If I had the chance to add another pick, it would be the poignant ending of The 25th Hour, in which Edward Norton’s character, en route to prison, has an elaborate fantasy about the alternate life he could have south of the border. Assistant managing editor Jason Adams had the ending of a different Norton movie in mind: ”Fight Club [pictured] has a pretty perfect final scene with the Pixies’ ‘Where Is My Mind?’ kicking in before the credits.”
