Best Ending to any film ever


Anybody agree?

Does this movie end with Randy Newman's "Political Science"? I have a memory of that song and the world getting blown up ("Boom goes London, and Boom Paris..."), but I can't remember from what film.

Whatever movie has THAT ending is the best ending to any film.

No, that's not it, I don't know what film ends like that, but I would like to see it so if anyone can let me know please do.

It's impossible to describe the ending to this film without first describing the set up which is so well hidden early on in the film. If I told you the set up and you knew it was the set up, then the punchline to the entire film wouldn't be funny. Get hold of the film and watch it for yourself. I gaurentee you will not be dissapointed.

'... his 1972 tune "Political Science", became part of the soundtrack of the 1999 romantic comedy Blast from the Past, starring Brendan Fraser, Alicia Silverstone, Christopher Walken, and Sissy Spacek.'

... which was a kind of a film about a war (WWIII) that never happened.

Jim man, I'm not making fun, I could completely see myself saying the same thing as I am a Newman fan, but that has to be the best quote I've seen yet on these boards.

-Blast From the Past

I do.

I saw this movie at least 15 years ago and never forgot the ending. Now I finally know what movie it was. I don't remember much else, other than the scene in the theatre and then in the submarine. Better than usual suspects or sixth sense.....

FIRE!!!! :) .
Yes, classic.

I love Ian Richardson in anything he's done, and it made me really smile to see he gets that classic final word in. He's the best thing about the film, along with Rik Mayall and Peter Cook.
