(YouTube)   From MST3K season 5, it's Girl in Lover's Lane, in which a hobo hangs out with a kid instead of courting the prostitute of his dreams. Joel, Servo, and Crow turn this schmaltz into a comedy. "I'm saving myself for the right oily drifter"   (youtube.com ) divider line

This one had such a bummer ending, the ending segment was a chance for the Brains to vent.

"BIg Stupid says he's gonna teach me the ins and outs of drifting!"

This is one of those movies that you can tell was actually  trying to be a good movie.  You can tell the director and the actors thought they were in a serious drama.

Why do you drive people away, Big Stupid?

It's a terrible ending because it's at once too dark and not dark enough.  I mean, the girl dies, Big Stupid nearly gets lynched...but the other hobo comes charging in to save Big Stupid, and Jack Elam's characcter just blurts out that he killed the girl even though he's totally gotten away with it.

I mean, the way it was setting up, you should have gone the full Tennessee Williams route.  Little Stupid gets back into town, but Big Stupid's already dead.  And then Creepy Dude Played By Jack Elem points out "Hey, there's his buddy!", and the lynch mob beats him to death too, as Jack Elam watches and laughs.

I mean, if you're gonna go dark, don't puss out and tack on a "happy" ending that makes no farking sense.

Maybe, but The Girl in Lover's Lane was made when the Production Code was still in effect.  Even if the filmmakers' wanted to there's no way they'd allow the bad guy (Jack Elam) get away with it and then have yet another innocent party get unfairly punished.

Incidentally, since we're on the subject of Tennessee Williams, the Production Code is one of the reasons why they had Stella left Stanley at the end of the film version of A Streetcar Named Desire.
