The first movie in a long time to leave me speechless.
10. What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
PG-13 | 118 min | Drama
After his father's death, Gilbert has to care for his mentally-disabled brother, Arnie, and his morbidly obese mother. This situation is suddenly challenged though, when love unexpectedly walks into his life.
Votes: 196,936 | Gross: $9.17M
It's sentimental and somewhat predictable, but those are small complaints, given the tender atmosphere and moving performances at the heart of What's Eating Gilbert Grape.
11. Something to Talk About (1995)
R | 106 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A woman's world is rocked when she discovers her husband is cheating on her.
Votes: 11,905 | Gross: $50.89M
Something to Talk About never goes bad, though it does get corny in places, and it hits a couple of dull patches near the finish.
12. The Cider House Rules (1999)
PG-13 | 126 min | Drama, Romance
A compassionate young man, raised in an orphanage and trained to be a doctor there, decides to leave to see the world.
Votes: 88,064 | Gross: $57.55M
The Cider House Rules has wonderful performances, lovely visuals, and an old-fashioned feel.
13. Chocolat (2000)
PG-13 | 121 min | Drama, Romance
A woman and her daughter open a chocolate shop in a small French village that shakes up the rigid morality of the community.
Votes: 168,103 | Gross: $71.51M
Chocolat is a charmingly light-hearted fable with a lovely performance by Binoche.
14. The Shipping News (2001)
R | 111 min | Drama
An emotionally beaten man with his young daughter moves to his ancestral home in Newfoundland to reclaim his life.
Votes: 30,815 | Gross: $11.43M
Though solidly made and acted, The Shipping News is rather heavy-handed and dull, especially given the nature of its protagonist.
15. An Unfinished Life (2005)
PG-13 | 108 min | Drama, Family, Romance
Desperate to provide care for her daughter, down-on-her-luck Jean moves in with her father in-law from whom she is estranged. Through time, they learn to forgive each other and heal old wounds.
Votes: 27,201 | Gross: $8.59M
A story of disjointed family members yearning for true emotional depth, An Unfinished Life teeters between overtly saccharine sentiments and moments of real intimacy.
16. Casanova (2005)

The fabled romantic Giacomo Casanova, after failing to win the affection of the Venetian woman Francesca Bruni, strives to discover the real meaning of love.
Votes: 49,347 | Gross: $11.29M
This frothy, oddly bloodless film does a disservice to the colorful life of the real Casanova.
17. The Hoax (2006)
R | 116 min | Comedy, Drama
Votes: 15,528 | Gross: $7.16M
The Hoax is an enormously appealing film, thanks to the uniformly excellent performances and Lasse Hallström's zippy direction.
18. Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)
G | 93 min | Drama, Family
A college professor bonds with an abandoned dog he takes into his home.
Sensitively directed and rarely over-sentimental, this touching parable will likely ravish the emotions of dog lovers.
19. Dear John (I) (2010)
PG-13 | 108 min | Drama, Romance, War
A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he's home on leave.
Votes: 128,309 | Gross: $80.01M
Built from many of the same ingredients as other Nicholas Sparks tearjerkers, Dear John suffers from its cliched framework, as well as Lasse Hallstrom's curiously detached directing.
20. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011)
PG-13 | 107 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance
A fisheries expert is approached by a consultant to help realize a sheik's vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert and embarks on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible possible.
Votes: 58,780 | Gross: $9.03M
Quirky and a little reserved, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is nonetheless a charming little romantic drama sold by some strong central performances.
21. The Hypnotist (2012)
122 min | Crime, Drama, Thriller
A detective pairs himself with a famous psychologist on a case involving a traumatized young witness to a crime.
It is not long before the recurrent motifs of sedative drugs, deep slumbers, comas and hypnosis have all come to highlight the film's soporific pace, making the viewer just feel sleepier and sleepier.
22. Safe Haven (I) (2013)
PG-13 | 115 min | Drama, Romance, Thriller
A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her.
Votes: 96,761 | Gross: $71.35M
Schmaltzy, predictable, and melodramatic, Safe Haven also suffers from a ludicrous plot twist, making for a particularly ignominious Nicholas Sparks adaptation.
23. The Hundred-Foot Journey (2014)
PG | 122 min | Comedy, Drama
The Kadam family leaves India for France where they open a restaurant directly across the road from Madame Mallory's Michelin-starred eatery.
Votes: 69,375 | Gross: $54.24M
Director Lasse Hallström does lovely work and Helen Mirren is always worth watching, but The Hundred-Foot Journey travels predictable ground already covered by countless feel-good dramedies.
24. A Dog's Purpose (2017)
PG | 100 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama
A dog looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and owners.
Votes: 53,175 | Gross: $64.51M
A Dog's Purpose offers an awkward blend of sugary sentiment and canine suffering that tugs at animal-loving audiences' heartstrings with shameless abandon.
25. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (2018)
PG | 99 min | Adventure, Family, Fantasy
A young girl is transported into a magical world of gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.
Votes: 18,001 | Gross: $54.86M
Lacking a transporting yuletide story or dazzling dance routines, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is a hollow holiday confection that's lovely to look at -- and easy to forget.
