25 greatest tearjerker movies of all-time

Teen weepfest “The Fault in Our Stars” is expected to trounce Tom Cruise's “The Edge of Tomorrow” at the box-office this weekend, and in honor of that unexpected victory we've decided to take a look back at some of our favorite tearjerkers from years past.

From animated classics like “Bambi” and “Dumbo” to perennial favorites like “It's a Wonderful Life” and “The Way We Were” to more contemporary three-hankie offerings including “Brokeback Mountain” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” the list – voted on by the HitFix staff – represents a diverse collection of cinema weepies to treasure and go back to whenever you feel the need for a good cry.
