Things that bug me about this movie *spoliers*


1. It's clear from the beginning that Vic and Eloise are a better match then Vic and Linda.
2. It's also clear that Linda and Donald are a better match then Vic and Linda.
3. Donald is the biggest idiot in three movies for not knowing his wife is sneaking off with Vic.
4. Vic is a total jerk and Eloise must have zero self esteem to let him get away with his crap and still come back to him at the end.
5. Grace Kelly is a total hussie in this film.
6. There is no way I can possibly believe Vic loves Eloise at the end. He's basically just settling because he couldn't have Linda. Noble my a$$.

Eloise is going to be miserable with this cad who basically settles for her only because he can't have Linda. She'll leave him within two years.
Vic and Linda's marriage is going back to England to completely fall apart as well.

Very frustrating "love story".

Also, I'm fairly sure they shot a real panther.

Agree with all that. Very disappointed in the ending. She should have stuck to her instincts and stayed in the boat.

I was hoping Ava would have stayed in the boat. She would have a plethora of people wanting her and could do so much better than him.

I agree for the most part. Though Linda may still keep her marriage (security) and her boys on the side.
