1 The Notebook 💑
If you’re in love 🌹 with Ryan Gosling’s clean 🚿 cut ✂️ look, his beard alone will make you cry in “The Notebook.” If that’s not enough to get you upset, Nicholas Sparks always has a 🅰️ way of writing 📃 stories that pull at our heart 💝 strings. "The Notebook" jumps between two 2️⃣ stories, one 1️⃣ about a 🅰️ young couple's troubled 😩 1940s romance 🌹 and an elderly 👴 husband and wife 💍 struggling to stay together 👫 in a 🅰️ modern-day nursing home. Plus, watching 👀 any love 😽 story where Ryan Gosling is the lead will bring us to tears just from wishing he was ours!
2 Titanic 🚣🏽
When you watch 📺 Titanic, you’ll probably get tears of frustration from the whole “they could’ve fit two 2️⃣ people 🚻 on 🔘 that board” situation. However, there’s plenty of other things to cry over, so buy 💴 a 🅰️ boatload of tissues before you press play. If you’ve somehow never seen the film, it’s about a man 🏃 named Jack who meets Rose 🌹 on 🔘 the Titanic and slowly shows her that there is happiness 😀 and love ♥️ outside of her shallow rich 💶 world 🌏 that her mother created for her. Then, when they just start falling 📉 for each other, the Titanic hits an iceberg and… well, you know the rest.
3 Ghost 👻
Your tissues will do double the work 📐 when you watch ⌚ "Ghost," because it’ll make you cry AND laugh. I ℹ️ mean, Whoopie Goldberg is in it, and she never fails to lighten the mood. Despite her comedic presence, Sam, the main male 🚹 character, dies right 👉 at the start of the movie. However, his spirit 👻 is stuck on 🔛 Earth 🌐 to help ℹ️ protect his girlfriend Molly and avenge his death. It’s a sad 😓 situation, but having a 🅰️ ghost 👻 as a 🅰️ boyfriend isn’t as bad as it would seem.
4 A Walk 👞 to Remember
If you think your life 🌱 is rough, this movie 🎥 will make your reality seem like 👌 flowers 💐 and sunshine. Like 👌 I ℹ️ mentioned earlier, I ℹ️ think it's safe to assume that you will always need a 🅰️ lot of tissues when watching 👀 a film 🎥 adaptation of a 🅰️ Nicholas Sparks book. In "A Walk 👞 To Remember," Landon is a 🅰️ high school 🏫 bad boy 👱🏼 who falls in love 💛 with God-loving good 👍 girl 💁 Jamie, who slowly makes him change his ways. Sadly, though, Landon finds out that Jamie is dying of leukemia and tries to complete her "bucket list" before it's too late. If your bucket list doesn’t contain “watch a Walk 👞 to Remember and reevaluate my life 💓 choices,” then you need to add ➕ it to the list.
5 My Girl 👦 👧
If you’re too young to be a 🅰️ mother but too old to play 🎲 with dolls, “My Girl” is exactly what you need to feel like 😍 you’re a 🅰️ worried 😰 parent. The movie 🎥 is a 🅰️ huge tearjerker as it was a 🅰️ harsh reminder 📑 that life 🌱 isn't fair, even at a 🅰️ young age. The story revolved around Vada and her best friend 🐕 Thomas J. They have a 🅰️ childhood love 💛 that is innocent 👼 and pure, but sadly ends up 🆙 being cut 🈹 short. Everyone has days where they wish 💫 they were a 🅰️ child 👨👩👧 again, but you need to remember how lucky 🍀 you are that you grew up 🆙 at all.
6 P.S. I Love 😻 You
Everything Gerard Butler touches is golden, which is why so many women 🎎 fantasize about his hands 👐 on 🔘 them. Although Butler dies at the start of the movie, he’s the main focus of it. "P.S I Love 💞 You" depicts Holly Kennedy, who is married to Butler’s character 👾 and has to deal with his death. However, before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a 🅰️ series 📗 of letters ™️ that will help ℹ️ guide her, not only through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The next time 🕖 that your boyfriend honks his horn 🎺 instead of picking you up 👆 at the door, remind him of how Gerry helped Holly even after his death. It’ll give him the shove he needs to man 👨 up.
7 Armageddon 💑
If you really want to escape 📚 through a 🅰️ movie, this one 1️⃣ will take 🎬 you all the way to space. It’s filled with stars—and not just the ones that sparkle ✨ in the sky. Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thorton, Liv Tyler, Ben Affleck, Owen Wilson, and Steve Buscemi are all in the film. It’s an action-packed movie 🎥 that centers around space 🌌 exploration and the fact that a 🅰️ doomsday asteroid is set 🎬 to collide with Earth. The only man 🏃 that has a 🅰️ chance of stopping the asteroid and saving all of the mankind is an oil driller named Harry Stamper and his group of misfit drillers and geologists. Then there's the love 😻 story between Harry's daughter 👨👩👧 Grace and his employee A.J. that leaves 🌲 us wondering who will come to Grace (if they stop 🙅 the asteroid) in the end? Her father, her fiancé, both, or neither.
8 My Sister's Keeper 👧
Your family 👪 isn’t the only one 1️⃣ with problems. Whether we want to admit it or not, we’re all pretty messed up. That’s just a 🅰️ trait that goes hand-in-hand with being human. This movie, adapted from a 🅰️ Jodi Picoult novel, is about an eleven-year-old named Anna Fitzgerald, who seeks to hire the successful lawyer Campbell Alexander in order to help ℹ️ her earn medical 🏥 emancipation from her mother Sara, who wants Anna to donate her kidney to her sister 👨👩👧👦 who's dying of leukemia.
9 Bambi 🌲 🌳
Of course, I ℹ️ had to include a 🅰️ classic tearjerker and probably the first 1️⃣ movie 🎥 all of us ever cried over. The beginning of "Bambi" is the saddest Disney movie 🎥 opening I ℹ️ had ever seen. (That is until the movie 🎥 "Up" came out.) Even as the movie 🎥 progress and things get happier, it’s hard not to think about the hardships those woodland animals have to face 🗿 in the real world. Us humans are just too mean. Those adorable 💟 creatures deserve a 🅰️ higher spot on 🔘 the food 🍥 chain.
10 Brokeback Mountain 🏜
Heterosexual relationships have had it too good 👍 for too long. It’s about time 🕒 that a 🅰️ movie 🎥 about two 2️⃣ dudes earns the spotlight it deserves. Never has a 🅰️ movie 🎥 come out that addressed being in the closet 👚 so accurately. And the passion 💗 between the two 2️⃣ characters? It is truly amazing, and it's a 🅰️ movie 🎥 that is a 🅰️ classic to see -- even if it does make you cry a 🅰️ ton!
11 The Blind 🙈 Side
"The Blind 🙈 Side" will make all of you football ⚽ haters into fans—at least temporarily. It's a 🅰️ movie 🎥 about a 🅰️ boy 👦🏽 that grew up 👆 in the bad part of town, but Sandra's character 🈴 took him in and made him into something. It's a 🅰️ classic drama 🎭 movie 🎥 that is absolutely amazing and heart-wrecking to watch! It’s even based on a 🅰️ true story, so don’t go claiming that the characters 💹 are unrealistic. It all actually happened.
12 Seven 7️⃣ Pounds
Will Smith is no 🚫 longer in Bellaire, but he’s still as fresh 🍋 as a 🅰️ prince. No 🙅 matter how old he gets, his acting 🎭 just never gets stale. This movie 🎥 is so unique and different that you really have to watch ⌚ it closely to understand. Once you do, have a box 📦 of Kleenex handy! It's sad, it's dramatic, and it's free 🆓 on 🔛 Netflix!
13 Bridge 🌁 to Terabithia
Don’t feel babyish for watching 👀 this film, because it’s more mature than you’d think. In fact, I ℹ️ wouldn’t want a 🅰️ child 👩👩👧 watching 👀 it because they’re too young to have their hopes and dreams crushed. Of course, adults are already used to the disappointment of the world, so if you like 👍 fairy tales and you love 💝 imagination, this is the movie 🎥 for you. One 1️⃣ warning, though, you are going 🆙 to cry at the end 💔 and it's going 👣 to kill 🔪 you just a 🅰️ little bit inside.
14 The Lovely 🌸 Bones
This movie 🎥 can be summed up 👆 with part of the title name: lovely. You already know that the book 📕 version is fantastic, but the movie? It brought it all to life 💓 and it's a 🅰️ deep, dark 🌃 movie. It's about a guy 👤 that killed a 🅰️ girl 💁 and it focuses on 🔘 her ghost, which appears to help ℹ️ her family 👩👩👧👧 and the authorities find out who her murderer is. It sounds a 🅰️ tad scary, but aren’t most things?
15 Selena 🎙
Selena was one 1️⃣ of the greatest singers out there—and no, we aren’t talking 📱 about the one 1️⃣ who dated 📅 Justin Bieber. We’re talking 📢 about the gorgeous lady, portrayed by Jennifer Lopez, who is stylish and just plain fabulous. I love 💏 the character 🈺 that Jennifer made and I ℹ️ absolutely love 😚 the fact that they made a 🅰️ movie 🎥 out of Selena's life. But since it’s based on a 🅰️ true story, it's also heartbreaking.
16 The Green Mile 🎞
If you’ve never heard 👂 of this film, you’re not alone. But as you know, just because something is unpopular doesn’t mean it’s unlovable (I mean, how popular 😎 are you, really?) This is one 1️⃣ of those movies 🎦 that is sure to pull some tears from your eyes. It's so, so hard to watch, but it's also a 🅰️ movie 🎥 that is absolutely beautiful and so, so well-done.
17 Steel 🔩 Magnolias
If you can’t afford to visit the beauty 💅🏽 parlor, you can at least afford to watch ⌚ a 🅰️ movie 🎥 about once. While this is an old-school movie, it is also one 1️⃣ of those classic films that is absolutely amazing to watch 📺 -- until you get to the end. Then it breaks your heart 💗 into a 🅰️ million pieces! I love 💑 watching 👀 this movie 🎥 over and over again because truthfully, the characters 🈹 are amazing, the cast is incredible and everyone did such a 🅰️ great 👍 job!
18 Stepmom 💉
Whenever there’s a 🅰️ step-mom in a 🅰️ movie, she’s always considered “evil.” Well, that’s just not fair 🎡 to all those lovely, concerned 😳 step-moms out there. They deserve some credit and it’s about time 📅 they got it! This movie 🎥 does have a 🅰️ great 👌 ending, but it does leave you with the question, does she really die? When? How long after? It's so hard to watch, but it's such a 🅰️ great 👍 movie!
19 The Pursuit of Happyness 😀
What’s the point ⬇️ of life, you ask? Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy 🌌 will say “42,” but this movie 🎥 will say it’s the pursuit of happiness. If you've ever been down 😣 and out and really trying to build 🔧 yourself back 🔙 up, this is the movie 🎥 for you! This is a 🅰️ movie 🎥 all about reinventing yourself and really pulling yourself out of a 🅰️ hole. A deep, deep hole.
20 The Vow 👰
After watching 👀 a 🅰️ really bad film, you might wish 💫 for memory loss, but it’s not something to joke 😝 about and "The Vow" will make you realize why. It’s about a 🅰️ woman 🚺 who gets into a car 🚟 accident and loses her memory -- all of it minus ➖ the past, where she still talked to her parents 👨👩👧👧 and was engaged 💍 to someone else besides her now husband. Imagine spending hours ⌚ of your time 🕦 listening 👂 to your mate’s complaints, buying her countless dinners, and making her fall 🍂 in love ♥️ with you—and then she forgets it all?
21 The Boy 👦🏽 in Striped Pajamas
If you want to be touched, you don’t need a 🅰️ man. You just need to pop this movie 🎥 into your blue 😢 ray player. I’ve never thought 💬 a 🅰️ movie 🎥 would tug at my heart 💝 to the point ⬇️ when it starts hurting 😞 until I ℹ️ saw the movie 🎥 "The Boy 👱🏼 In Striped Pajamas." The movie 🎥 is about a 🅰️ 9-year-old boy, Bruno, growing up 🆙 during World 🌏 War 2 in Berlin. His father forbade him from exploring his surroundings, but like 💖 any curious ❓ little boy, Bruno decided to do the opposite. Through his exploration, he meets a 🅰️ boy 👱🏼 his age 👵 named Shmuel, who is separated from his family 👨👩👧 in a 🅰️ concentration camp. From that point 📍 on, Bruno decides to make it his mission to help ℹ️ Shmuel reunite with his family. As a 🅰️ viewer, you can’t help ℹ️ but admire Bruno’s innocence and nonjudgmental mindset, his selflessness and his bravery. It’s a 🅰️ touching story that everyone should see!
22 Up! 🎈
Who says animated movies 🎥 aren’t as good 👍 as live action 🎬 ones? Some may find it hard to connect with a 🅰️ cartoon character, but the way this movie 🎥 is made, it breaks down 😧 that boundary and connects with your emotions on a 🅰️ whole other level. You find so much sympathy for the main character 🈴 for the loss of his loved ❤️ one 1️⃣ that you would be surprised 😨 yourself by the amount of waterworks you’ll exude! You’ll never be able to look 👀 at a 🅰️ balloon 🎈 the same way again.
23 One 1️⃣ Day
Graduation 🎓 day ☁️ is better than any birthday 🎁 because you’ll see your enemies for the last time, you’ll no 🙅 longer have to complete useless assignments, and if you’re Emma, you’ll meet the love 🌹 of your life. The story revolves around Emma and Dexter who first 1️⃣ meet on 🔘 their graduation 🎓 day, and although they are polar opposites, life 💓 keeps bringing them back 🔙 together 👫 on 🔛 the same date 👬 --July 15th. Whether they end up 👆 together 👫 or grow 🌱 apart for good, you’ll have to find out for yourself! You’ll never get through a July 📅 15th without remembering this film, so you better enjoy it!
24 The Last Song
You might hate 👎 watching 👀 her swing naked on a 🅰️ wrecking ball, but the girl 💁 can act. Some might consider this as just another teenage movie 🎥 but it is an adaptation of a 🅰️ Nicholas Sparks book, so you can’t just give up 👆 all hope. In reality, there is a 🅰️ lot of substance and good 👍 acting. You might actually be surprised 😯 at how many moments you will be able to relate to and how many times your eyes 👀 will start to tear up. Aside from the romantic 🌷 plot, there is more depth to the storyline due to an estranged relationship 💏 between Ronnie and her father. Their family 👨👩👧 storyline is what stood out to me the most, and maybe you’ll feel the same way!
25 Marley & Me
If your parents 👩👩👧👦 refuse to let you get a 🅰️ dog, "Marley & Me" will show you why that decision is probably for the best. No 👎 matter how much fun you’d have rolling 🎲 around in the dirt with your furry friend, he’ll eventually get buried under it. This movie 🎥 will make you feel like 💖 you're actually growing up 🆙 with Marley because it shows the dog's entire life, which just so happens to include the end 💔 of it. The last few scenes of the film 📹 feels like 💚 you have to say goodbye to your own dog 🐕 that you've had for the past hour and a 🅰️ half—so imagine having one 1️⃣ for ten 🔟 whole human years!
26 Remember Me
If you've never seen this particular movie, you've got to. Of course, it has the standard troubled-teen in it that falls in love, but what you don't know is the twist at the end 🔚 that makes it so, so sad. I ℹ️ won't ruin it for you but watch 📺 it.
27 Schindler's List
There are a 🅰️ few movies 🎦 that everyone should see and this is one 1️⃣ of them. It's a 🅰️ classic, is one 1️⃣ that will make you cry, it's one 1️⃣ that is so beautiful. It's about saving the lives of Jews during the Holocaust. The fact that it's a 🅰️ true story is amazing.
28 The Color 🎨 Purple
Whoopi Goldberg in this movie 🎥 is the best. Not only is this role made for her, but this movie 🎥 will make you laugh, cry and go through every single 1️⃣ emotion 💘 you've ever experienced. I've watched this movie 🎥 about a 🅰️ hundred 💯 different times and it is still perfect.
29 Fried Green ♻️ Tomatoes
This childhood is breathtaking and the way that they switch between the stories? It is amazing. This movie 🎥 will make you lose it when ninny and Evelyn pass 🎫 right 👉 by Ruth's grave. It's sad, it's funny 😂 and it is beautiful.
30 Boy's Don't Cry
Hilary Swank in this movie 🎥 is amazing. It's hard to watch, especially in this day 🌞 and age, but it is still such a 🅰️ powerful movie 🎥 to really understand what trans people 🚻 go through and what they fear.
There's nothing like 😻 a good 👍 cry, especially when you've been feeling like 👍 the world 🌏 has been weighing down 👇 on 🔘 your shoulders lately. It can also be a 🅰️ great 👍 way to bond with your girlfriends, Mom, or any other important woman 👧🏻 in your life. To be able to connect with characters 🔣 and a 🅰️ story so much that it makes you cry is an amazing feeling and thus why tearjerker chick 🐣 flicks are so popular.
