Bend It Like Beckham is a nearly perfect film.
Except for one glaring plot error.
These two didn't end up living happily ever after.
But Director Gurinder Chadha rewrote the script to avoid upsetting conservative Indian audiences.
And so at the film's conclusion, Jess ends up with Joe and the world uttered a collective:
Because to anyone with eyeballs, it's obvious she should have ended up with Jules.
Could they possibly have been more into each other?
The tension between them is palpable throughout the film.
They can barely keep their eyes off each other...
... not to mention their hands.
From the start, Jules is completely smitten with Jess.
That fierce look in her eyes? That's love people.
And just look at the way Jess gazes at Jules here:
HOW was this not a real kiss?
And this should have been a real kiss:
They way they drank beer and shopped for shoes together? Be more of a couple, please.
WE GET IT, YOU ARE MEANT TO BE.
It's pretty clear Joe was simply a third-wheel.
You're embarrassing yourself, mate.
