'Inception' ending secrets revealed at last in parody clip

Everyone’s still talking about the last scene of Inception. (I guess I should put a SPOILER ALERT here for anyone who somehow hasn’t gotten around to seeing it.) Does Cobb’s personal top keep spinning? Does it fall? Is he still dreaming or back in reality?

The version of the film that Christopher Nolan sent to theaters won’t tell you one way or another. Thank goodness the sleuths at CollegeHumor.com have unearthed an extended look at what happens after that ending sequence. Maybe that top’s still spinning, maybe not. The only way to find out is watch this clip below. Hit the comments after you feel the kick.

    I’m so sick of Inception. Enough already! What a boring film really.

    • Tom Brazelton

      Hateful troll is hateful.

      • thanks for clicking and commenting on something you are sick of. you can return to your eclipse and bachelorette articles now.

      • harry

        LOL so true!!!

    • Jim

      Dina, you were probably bored of Inception because you didn’t understand it. I saw it 3 times and its one of the best movies I’ve seen. And Nick, nice comment man.

    • Matt

      I agree, it was an awful film. It was Nolan’s pathetic attempt at being sub-textual and philosophical. I’m sorry but he’s just another over-hyped director, I don’t see him any better than Michael Bay. If you want an actual deep film that will leave you thinking try David Lynch.

        Eat your own head. Inception was great. The person you described as over-hyped is the director you just recommended. Go watch Inland Empire and piss yourself.

  • Nick

    That was cute, but I can’t say it was that funny.

    Dina> I’ve seen Inception twice, and I will probably see it again before it goes out of theaters. Obviously, I don’t think it’s boring. If you hate Inception, how about you not wasting your time by posting. Thanks…

    • Ceballos

      Agree…more cute than laugh-out-loud funny.

    • Madd


    • teekay

      I giggled out loud… still kind of giggling…

  • Jeff

    Are you allergic to fun, Dina? That’s really sad.

  • Amanda B.

    Very clever!

  • Rob

    Eh. Pretty obvious joke, and it doesn’t really add much or have a surprising punchline or anything.

    • Jenny

      Pretty obvious joke?? Did the “CollegeHumor” not tip you off….

  • Ron

    Great parody — captured the essence of the film and saved viewers 2 1/2 hours. I especially enjoyed the insertion of the second top. Maybe we CAN have it both ways!
    I actually enjoyed _Inception_ The ending of the film is eerily reminiscent of the endings of _Total Recall_ and _Blow Up_. Both mind-blowing films in their own right.

  • Rusty Shackleford

    Though I disagree with Dina’s opinion, these comments sections are for feedback, it doesn’t mean it has to be positive. If she wants to tell EW she doesn’t like this type of article, then so be it, but people need to stop with the “then why are you posting” comeback.

    • OhhhBoyyy

      ditto. I honestly just thought the movie was too long. It was a good concept. I wish they would’ve used someone else as the wife. She was sort of annoying… X~P

  • Klint

    That wasn’t particularly funny.

  • cam

    It’d be funny to hear audio clips of various theatures at the end of the movie. The one I was at definetly groaned.

    I wouldn’t say there’s anything “mind blowing” about the ending. Just ambiguity to get people talking whether the whole thing was a dream or not. And since the answer can either be yes or no, it’s not really all that profound of a question.

  • Jackal


  • Nan

    What did the guy at the end of the clip say? *something* “sucked”?!

    • Ceballos

      “Dark Knight sucked”

    • rizzo

      dark knight

    • RyanK

      Dark Knight

    • Loki

      He said, “The Dark Knight sucked!”

    • cootie

      I think the guy at the end said “Dark Knight sucked”

    • Madd

      I thought he said “Dark Knight sucked”.

    • Mac

      The guy said “Dark Knight sucked”

    • Nick

      The guy at the end said “Dark Knight sucked!”

    • JC

      He said “Dark Night Sucked”

    • Jake

      “Dark Knight sucked.”

      I don’t agree, but it made me laugh.

    • moviegoer

      He said “Dark Knight sucked!”

    • Scotty

      “Dark Knight sucked”

  • Bob

    Yeah, he said, Dina Sucked. Oh, how she sucked

  • Jake

    Laugh out loud! This is very funny because apparently EVERY movie theater has the same reaction of groans from the audience.

  • SusieQ

    I don’t really think there is a right or a wrong conclusion of how this movie ends. I think it is left completely up to the viewer to decide what happens, and then go with their own opinion. Is Cobb still dreaming or is he awake. Bottom line is he is happy whether or not he IS dreaming or if he IS awake. That is all that matters at this point, and this is as far as the movie takes us. There is no right OR wrong answer.

  • izikavazo

    That’s hilarious.
    By the way, Shut up Dinah!
