Yeah, I agree. I don't think it dwells on it though, because I don't think they're really THAT fucked up. I mean, Pat says it in the movie 'I have one incident'. He made one dumb decision in the heat of a moment where anyone would be furious. It always seemed to me that Pat had obtained enough ways of dealing with his illness through his stay at the hospital. The challenges he faced throughout the film to me seemed to have more to do with coming back into society and re-introducing himself after everyone being aware of the incident and his stay in the hospital. I think THEN and only THEN is where it says some profound things about the stigma of mental illness in our society. I think the fear and anxiety in Pat throughout the film indicates this especially at the beginning, I.E.: Not wanting to go to dinner at Ronnie and Veronica's. I find it ironic and slightly troubling that some think Pat is some raging lunatic and that the ending his problems are cured, when I always thought the movie's main trick is proving everyone around him is just as crazy. I think Russell is trying to say throughout the film that Pat isn’t really that bad, he just made one bad decision that cost him a lot, so the people saying Pat is complete nutcase almost feel like they’re feeding into the stigma Russell is trying to shed light on. I think the movie is about finding people to surround yourself with that can co-exist within your own 'crazy'. So I did think it was the right decision for the film to end at home with all the characters gathered together, even though I agree the final shot is boring and too pat.
