It takes a real romantic hero to wade into a den of divorced women to win back his wife, but it takes a strong woman to upstage Tom Cruise's heart-wrenching declaration, "You complete me."

When Renée Zellweger's character orders him to "shut up," you can't help but gasp. Her brilliantly delivered follow-up— a tearful "You had me at hello"—is the true takeaway in this simply perfect scene, which left the divorced women's support group (and everyone in the theater) with feelings of hope.
