The NotebookThe classic tearjerker movie. Many of us watch them with a diet coke in one hand and a box of Kleenex in the other. Whether it's a sappy Lifetime movie or an old classic romance, we enjoy watching them even though they make us weep like little babies. Some won't admit to tearing up, while others put the blame on "allergies" or use other excuses.

It's pretty hard to keep this list short, or maybe it's just because here at Starpulse we get a little sappy when it comes to this type of film. We somehow managed. Get out the box of Kleenex because you may need them.

My Girl (1991)
It's the summer of 1972 and Vada Sultenfuss (Anna Chlumsky) is just your average little girl who enjoys poetry and spending time with her dad Harry (Dan Aykroyd) and her best friend Thomas J. Sennett (Macaulay Culkin). It sounds like any normal family, but her mother died when she was young and her father runs a funeral parlor. Any kid who spends 24/7 with corpses can turn out to be a little odd. Even so, her best friend Thomas J. has always stuck by her side, but this friendship doesn't last forever.

Thomas J. is allergic to everything, and when Vada loses her ring in the forest he decides to go and look for it. Smart move Tomas J. He sees a bee hive, and like many boys his age he decides to throw rocks at it, which turns out bad because the bees start coming at him stinging him all over his body.

Vada decides to skip out on her best friend's funeral, but later she decides to come downstairs to say one last goodbye to her best friend. After watching this scene you will see why it's on the top of our list and one of the biggest tearjerker moments on film.
