    "Love means never having to say you're sorry..."

    WTF does that even mean? Anyway, those are the notorious words from a 1970s movie that most critics loved to laugh at big time, while the general public stood in line for hours just to buy a ticket, and made the movie a HUGE success:



    For me, I only just saw the movie on DVD a week or so ago. Honestly, I was avoiding it like somebody that's forever asking me for money which I don't have - I'm poor as fuck - so I was humbled big time when I discovered the much maligned movie is actually pretty damn good!

    Also, the only reason I bought the DVD was because my much loved sister (dead at 29 in a car wreck), was forever telling me to ignore the damn critics and just watch her favorite movie. I never did - until it was too late. Now I cannot tell her how much I liked it.

    Except maybe in this thread: Elizabeth, you were right and I was wrong. I'd liked to have watched the movie w/you, but life can be cruel. This thread is for you:



    P.S. If you can tell me what "Love means never having to say you're sorry" actually means, then I will buy you breakfast, lunch, or dinner - depending on your time zone ;-)

    It might mean something like "you never have to apologize because I love you without conditions".

    But it definitely wasn't a Catholic who made that movie, because every day at mass the priest and everyone publically apologizes for their sins, while at the same time loving God lol

      ill Duce Haha. I hear you big time. I think that's why so many critics laughed at it, and gave it 1/4 stars at best. Curiously enough, Roger Ebert liked it. I suspect that's why so many people bought tickets and made the movie a mega hit :-)

          Where are all the TF wordsmiths? Haha. This isn't the immortal words of Shakespeare we are speaking of...

            I've never seen the movie so I don't know the context. Sounds wrong though, I would say if anything indifference means not having to say you're sorry.

              Undies That makes sense. I think what

              Mamma Mia!
              ill Duce said also makes sense. Another spin on it is if you truly love somebody, then you'd never do anything to them that would require an apology? Anyway, it sounds nice. It just doesn't make much sense (to me). But the entire movie was odd - in a good sense... haha.

                    Oh she's adorable.

                    I wasn't saying her face makes me wanna puke.

                    It's how melodramatic it looks , but mainly it's the idea that "love means never having to say you're sorry". Every night I examine my conscience and find things I regret and need to say sorry for lol, even if it's only saying sorry to God.

                    Like, I love God , but I think he's an asshole and blaspheme almost daily, but then suddenly I have a change of heart and realize I should say " sorry" , even though I know I'm gonna get angry and blaspheme again.

                    So, I dunno,

                    ​​​​i'm not fond of the quote.

                      Who is? Haha. I think it's just the poet in me that keeps wondering WTF? I guess you have to see the movie - still the quote remains an enigma :-)

                          ill Duce Dude, I only watch YouTube or DVDs on my TV. You could not pay me to watch any of the crap that is so popular. Plus all of those damn commercials! Funny you should mention Joker - that's #1 on my must see movie list :-)

                              I agree with the sentiment, except if you accidentally step on someone's toes. Then "sorry" just expresses concern, which is a form of love.
