Sense and Sensibility

Due to losing his fortune irrevocably to his younger brother, Edward releases Lucy from their engagement (she immediately goes off and snares the one with the cash), rides to Barton Cottage, proposes to Eleanor and becomes a vicar. Brandon marries Marianne and Willoughby sits on his horse halfway up a hill on the verge of tears, watching his true love live happily ever after.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lucy Steele admits to Fanny Dashwood that she is secretly engaged to Edward, Lucy starts the scene holding a lapdog. When Fanny explodes and attacks Lucy, the dog has disappeared from the set.
