    What bothers me is that way too many people throw a hissy fit when they find out the end of a less than two hour movie.

    It also bothers me that you read a whole book when you already knew the end. That took longer than two hours unless you skipped ahead.

    What was the book? I’m bothered you didn’t say the name.

    The hero of a story is the protagonist but the protagonist may not be a hero.

    What bothers me is they never say which way the guy cut his wife in half,length-wise or across.

    I assume we’re dealing with the classical definition of “hero”, here.

    Probably a film in the Slice of Wife genre…

    So he forgot how the movie went? Or the book changed something in a way that made the movie look bad by association?

    The novels protagonist referred to his wife as his “better halves”.
