They say money can buy you a dog, but only love can make it wag its tale.

Wow. We must be pretty hooked on the idea that money can’t buy love – we’re bringing dogs into it!

That idea looks great on the big screen, too: love stands higher than the material world. Tons of Hollywood scripts revolve around the cliché of a rich guy chasing after a girl who doesn’t love him and is, instead, in love with a poor guy. The rich guy is either boring or doesn’t truly love her, while the poor guy can give her everything she needs – except money. Girl runs off with poor guy to live happily ever after, THE END, roll credits.

Only we never really know if they do live happily ever after. The movie usually ends at, or soon after, runaway point.
