Debra Winger and Shirley MacLaine in Terms of Endearment

9 of 9
Perhaps no relationship is more loaded than that of a mother and daughter. Maybe that's why Oscar® winner Terms of Endearment, about the love-hate relationship between Debra Winger's and Shirley MacLaine's characters, is widely accepted as the tearjerker of all time. From Shirley's unforgettable "Give my daughter the shot!" tirade to Debra's final reassurance to her son that "I know that you love me," the tears start early and they just don't stop. Watch it when you're in that Friday night, stay-in-bed, pint-of-ice-cream-and-box-of-tissues kind of mood.
