The Player (1992)

Ending / spoiler

(0 votes)

Griffin (Tim Robbins) is called by the police for a suspect line up because an old lady witnessed the murder of writer David Kahane (Vincent D'Onofrio). However, the lady chooses the wrong person in the line up: the cop (Lyle Lovett) who was following Griffin. One year later, Griffin still has his job at the studio and Larry Levy (Peter Gallagher) and other studio executives are watching a screening of the movie Habeas Corpus. The two guys who pitched the movie idea to Griffin sold out: Habeas Corpus has major stars in it (Bruce Willis as the hero and Julia Roberts as the women who is wrongly sentenced to the death penalty) and it has a happy ending (Bruce Willis saves Julia Roberts from the gas chamber). Bonnie expresses her dislike of Habeas Corpus and she's fired. Griffin gets a call from the post card stalker and we see that he (Griffin) has a happy ending of his own: he gets the girl (June) and she's pregnant, he still has his job and he got away with murder.

Continuity mistake: When Tim Robbins opens the trunk of his Range Rover to get his umbrella to kill the rattlesnake in his front seat, watch for the reflection of the guy holding the camera. As Robbins goes around to the front, so does the cameraman. You can easily see his reflection in the car's windows the whole time.
