There are certain movies that will never fail to make you cry. Titanic is one classic example. Netflix recently added Revolutionary Road, directed by Sam Mendes. It’s about a failing marriage and a reunited Kate Winslet and Leo. And of course, we cannot forget the chick flicks and rom-coms. GLAMOUR has compiled a list of their favorite chick flicks and rom-coms.
Marley & Me
The wistful dog story of Marley and Me is one of those movies that will tug at your heartstrings. This movie, based on the memoir by John Grogan, is a touching portrayal of two people who learn to love and respect each other through a dog. The film stars Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson as a newlywed couple who are unsure about the idea of parenthood. They are accompanied by their naughty yellow Labrador, Marley.
Jenny suffers from postpartum depression and is stressed raising two small children. As she grows increasingly frustrated with Marley, she seeks help from Sebastian, her bachelor friend. Sebastian agrees to take Marley for a few days after she insists on finding a home for him. Soon, Sebastian realizes that Marley is an indispensable part of the family, and they become closer than ever. Marley’s behavior reflects this.
John’s column, “John’s Life,” is published twice-weekly, and his editor, Arnie Klein, offers him a job as a columnist. Despite the difficulty, John realizes that Marley is the perfect topic for his column. He is able to find plenty of material to write about and doubles the paper’s circulation in no time. However, when Marley is eighteen months old, the family is devastated. They have to euthanize Marley and mourn his loss. He dies shortly after and is buried beneath a tree in their front yard.
The Way We Were
The Way We Were is a sweeping love story that features Robert Redford and Barbra Streisand. Despite being a period piece, it does have its share of heartbreaking moments. Like many other Hollywood films, The Way We Were follows the lives of two people who fall in love but are not quite right for each other. The relationship ultimately ends with them estranged and separated. In fact, Robert Redford’s character may even have a child that he never knows.
The romantic plot centered on a young man who falls in love with a girl from a “different world” goes back to the silent era. The romantic angle is handled brilliantly by the two actors, who play a feisty Communist party activist and a hot all-American athlete. While Streisand is a powerful actress, the film’s other stars, Anna Chlumsky and Macaulay Culkin, are both great as their characters. The film was a hit in the 70s, when nostalgia allowed actors to get emotional displays, and the movie still feels very much of that time.
Another rom-com that’s worth mentioning is Sisters Forever, starring AnnaSophia Robb. Based on the famous novel by Alice Walker, the movie features the likes of Oprah, Whoopi Goldberg, Leo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, and a host of other celebrities. Whether the film is true or fictional, the story will tug at your heartstrings and have you crying for days or even weeks.
Despite being a comedy about a beautician and small-town Southerners, Steel Magnolias will have you in tears. This film is a perfect example of how a movie can make you cry, and it’s made even more memorable by the incredibly talented Anna Chlumsky, who starred as Veda Sultenfuss on the TV show Veep. Chlumsky’s amazingly talented voice, coupled with her powerful acting and directing talents, makes Steel Magnolias an incredibly emotional experience.
The film’s beautiful soundtrack is an excellent way to set the tone for the emotional scenes, and you can listen to it on Amazon. The cast is incredibly talented, including Julia Roberts and the late Richard Gere. It’s impossible to not get touched by the chemistry between the lead characters, as well as the plight of the family after Shelby passes away. This movie will make you cry, because of the powerful characters that it depicts.
If you’ve never seen Steel Magnolias, you’re missing out on a treat. If you’ve been a fan of drama, it’s probably time to check it out. The movie is based on a true story and was written as a tribute to Harling’s sister, Susan. Susan passed away from complications caused by diabetes, but the play was eventually adapted for the big screen by director Herbert Ross. The cast’s chemistry makes the film truly feel like a Southern staple.
This 1979 drama is chock full of heart-wrenching scenes. Jon Voight, as Billy, plays a single father who’s brought up his son alone. But after Billy’s wife Annie returns with his son, he must face the past once again. Fortunately, he’s not the only one with a past. The Champ makes you cry in every way possible, as it’s a deeply moving story about love, loss, and the pain of failure.
The Champ’s final scene has become a classic in psychology labs across the world. Researchers have used the movie to study depressed people’s crying ability, their tendency to spend more when they’re sad, and the sensitivity of older people to grief. Another study was conducted by Dutch scientists, who compared how sad a scene in “The Champ” made a person feel. The study even revealed that crying makes men less attracted to women.
The Champ is one of the saddest movies in history. Perhaps even sadder than Bambi, the film features a boxer named Ricky Schroder who is forced to reenter the boxing ring in order to support his son. It is a movie that will leave you sobbing, so make sure to watch it before a hard-core action flick. The emotional highpoint of The Champ is the moment when Schroeder’s character cheers on his dead father and then cries, “Champ, wake up!”
All the Bright Places
If you’re looking for some Netflix movies that will make you cry, All the Bright Places is the one for you. This teen drama from Justice Smith and Elle Fanning will tug at your heartstrings. Set in a small town in Indiana, the story revolves around Violet Markey and Theodore Finch, two high schoolers. Violet is popular and deals with the loss of her sister while Theodore is struggling with suicidal thoughts and a history of bullying. Together they form a bond and begin to bond, but are they as good as they seem?
The premise of All the Bright Places is a touching one, and it’s no wonder why the movie has garnered so many positive reviews. It takes on some heavy themes, such as depression and suicide, but it never takes itself too seriously. You will find yourself crying and cheering at the same time, as you root for Violet and her family’s triumphant return to school. It’s a great movie for all ages, but it is especially poignant for those who have been hurt by a loved one.
The plot of All the Bright Places is also very touching, but you can’t blame anyone for crying if you watched it while watching a Netflix series. The story of two high school students struggling with mental illness is a moving one. Violet Marey, played by Elle Fanning, is a wistful and sensitive teenager who finds solace in the company of Theodore Finch. Their friendship develops into a romance, but there is a dark shadow hanging over their relationship.
One of the best-known moments in the movie is when Bert and Mary Poppins go on an adventure together. The family’s journey is marked by many emotional moments. In the movie, the family’s journey to a new world coincides with the change in the wind. Bert, who had been living with Mary Poppins for two years, arrives at No. 17, where Bert meets Bert’s mother and stepsisters. As they argue, Mrs. Brill yells “Shut up inside!” to Bert, who wishes Mary Poppins a fond farewell.
The movie has become one of Disney’s most beloved family films. The original 1964 musical is a Disney classic and is a timeless classic. The enchanting storyline and uplifting music are both a great reason to watch Mary Poppins again. Featuring a nanny with supernatural abilities, the movie is also a charming family-friendly film. The only downside to the film is the high level of violence. However, it is worth watching if you have a child in the house.
Originally, the book was published 20 years before the film’s release, in 1934. The book was popular with readers and many thought it would make a great movie. It was also a huge hit and inspired two sequels, a sequel in 2018 and a new one in 2013. It also spawned another film, Saving Mr. Banks, which chronicles the story of how Disney tried to purchase the book rights.
