I'm talking about the movies that make you grin when not even that photo of a puppy and kitten hugging could get you to crack a smile. Fortunately, streaming sites like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu have plenty of flicks guaranteed to brighten your mood. These are movies that bring on giggle-inducing waves of glee and nostalgia.

    But what about when you don't want to get out of your rut, and you just want to wallow for a bit? There are plenty of intentional tearjerkers on streaming platforms as well. From weepy rom-coms to truly tragic dramas, these flicks are guaranteed to make you run through multiple boxes of tissues.

    Click through if you need an entertaining antidote for a seriously bad week.
