Some movies leave you indifferent, some leave you satisfied, and some leave you feeling euphoric—walking on air and seeing the world through new eyes. What, then, is the difference between a bad ending, a good ending, and an insanely great ending? Screenwriter Michael Arndt attempts to answer that question with a close analysis of the climaxes of Star Wars, The Graduate, and his own screenplay, Little Miss Sunshine.
