Have you ever been sitting down to watch a gruesome horror movie, or outrageous comedy, and then about halfway through you find yourself sobbing at something totally unexpected? Like a beloved pet’s death, for instance? Or a passionate monologue from the movie’s toughest character? Sometimes the films that I least expect to activate my tear ducts are the ones that leave me the most emotional. In honor of Hollywood devastating me out of nowhere over and over again (ugh), I went ahead and asked my fellow POPSUGAR editors what movies have unexpectedly left them misty-eyed over the years. (And yes, I may or may not have cried a little while writing this.)
Just be warned: there are spoilers to certain movies ahead, so tread lightly!
