Question Platies vs. Mollies????

So what is the difference, if any, between these two kinds of fish? I was looking at them and noticed they are pretty much the same. I think they are both livebearers, and they look a lot alike as well. It would be kind of pointless to get both kinds in my tank since they are so similar. So anybody have any opinions on one over the other? I think they are both cool kinds of fish, but I am pretty indecisive. Thanks

Basicly....

The Molly is longer/bigger in size, finnage and snout, while the Platy is more compact/stout and much more colourful.
