Here are a few feel good or tear jerker movies that I like to re-watch now and then. I think the world needs more movies like these:
The Bucket List, a film about two unlikely friends thrust together by terminal illnesses. With Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman
Return to Me, a movie about second chances at love and life. With David Duchovny, Minnie Driver, Joely Richardson, David Allan Grier, Carroll O’ Connor, Robert Loggia, James Belushi, and Bonnie Hunt
Independence Day, a campy sci-fi adventure with Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Randy Quaid, to name a few
The Wedding Singer, a great movie about a would be songwriter and a waitress who are mixed up with the wrong partners. With Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in one of their great pairings.
I know these are cheesy or heart-tugging choices we’ve (mostly) all seen a dozen times, but they’re always good to see again.
