Films That Left Us All Reaching For a Box of Tissues
By Sarah Flanigan
Get your tissue boxes ready! In honor of the 10 year anniversary of The Notebook, we’re breaking down a few films since 2004 that have left us all shedding some serious tears.
Recently, The Fault in Our Stars has rocketed to the top of our tearjerkers list. The film adaptation of the best-selling John Green novel has rightfully earned its reputation.
When Shailene Woodley’s character, Hazel Grace Lancaster utters the line, "You gave me a forever within the numbered days. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity," it’s enough to make even the non-romantic believe in true love.
But, who can forget about the first few scenes in the 2009 Disney Pixar film Up? What began as the most adorable animated film ever, quickly took a turn for the worst when we find out Ellie dies so early on.
In 2012, Channing Tatum did double duty, starring as a male stripper in Magic Mike and a hopeless husband in love with his wife, played by Rachel McAdams, in The Vow. In the romance film, the hunky actor got to show off his softer side by portraying a man who is desperately trying to help his lady love remember their life together after she wakes up from a coma.
When the hottie tells McAdams, “I see the way you look at him. I know, because you used to look at me that way,” it is nearly impossible to hold back the water works.
