When was the last time you had a good cry at the movies?
Call it emotional blackmail or just good storytelling, but there's nothing quite like a romantic tearjerker, whether it's a forbidden love, a terminal illness or just bad timing that conspires to keep our on-screen lovers apart, and us sobbing.
The filmmakers behind "Me Before You ," out Friday, hope that their film about a working-class girl and the wealthy quadriplegic she falls for might just be a worthy addition to the canon.
While we wait to indulge in the saga of Lou and Will, here are some romantic classics to prepare those tear ducts for maximum waterworks. So stock up on your tissues and get ready for the feels-so-good despair.
