Nowhereman: Did he say Big stupid?
OtherLittleGuy: This one had such a bummer ending, the ending segment was a chance for the Brains to vent.
jake_lex: OtherLittleGuy: This one had such a bummer ending, the ending segment was a chance for the Brains to vent.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.
