Seemingly Happy Movie Endings With Unhappy Consequences According to Ranker

"Unless you're a glutton for punishment who spends your days watching joyless films like Dancer in the Dark, you like your movies to have happy endings. A lot of successful films end on a positive note - even dark movies - to send the audience out of the theater smiling; however, just because your favorite movies have happy endings doesn't mean they lack unsettling consequences. The unspoken consequences of seemingly happy movies are obvious once you think about them. Most Steven Spielberg plots would thrust their main characters into some much-needed therapy, and even action films that close with the main character overcoming adversity don't deal with the collateral damage and reams of paper work to be dealt with by some hapless, bureaucratic pencil-pusher. Romantic comedies surely lead to acrimonious breakups by the very couple that charmed you.
Life is quicksand, dragging us all down to a pit of despair, and even movies with happy endings can't do anything about it." - ranker.com
