    As far as I remember, the ending is basically Gyllenhaal's character's big fuck you to his ex-wife (Adams). Basically, she didn't think he had the ability to make it as a writer and she cheated on him, divorced, and remarried. Gyllenhaal then writes this "great" novel, the story of which is played out for us in the movie (it is possible that the novel has parallels to their real-life story, but it has been too long and I don't remember). She is engrossed and wowed by the book, and arranges a meeting with him, possibly with a view to reconcile given her current unhappy marriage. He stands her up. The end.

    Maybe I'm looking for more than there is.

    It's just a terrible ending for what was otherwise a really good movie beforehand. Hard to think of a movie that is like that.

    It did feel like they didn't know how to end it.

    This may be my most hated movie ever. Just thinking about it makes my gorge rise.
