You know that feeling. The one you get when a movie comes together just like you wanted it to….just like you needed it to…”It’s the place dreams come true”. We’ve compiled a short list of those feel-good moments. So on with the show and here’s our top ten happiest endings in film history.
10.) APOLLO 13
…because who doesn’t love a good re-entry into the atmosphere scene with Ed Harris & Gary Sinise. And because:
… because it’s Bill Murray in the infamous role of Scrooge. And because “I get it now! Then if you GIVE, then it can happen, then the miracle can happen to you!”
8.) SLEEPLESS IN SEATLE
…because “It’s you“. And cue the music from An Affair to Remember…
7.) MY COUSIN VINNY
6.) AS GOOD AS IT GETS
…because “And the fact that I get it, makes me feel good — about me“…. And because it’s Jack!
5.) WALK THE LINE
…because June Carter says “Okay”…
4.) FORREST GUMP
…because “I named him after his daddy“.
3.) FIELD OF DREAMS
2.) THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION
1.) THE WIZARD OF OZ
…because “There’s no place like home“. And no – it’s not that we feared Ms. Dorothy Gale wouldn’t make it out of Oz – we knew she would.
It’s just wonderful to see her friends again.
PS: Ron Howard directed Apollo 13. People wonder if Howard sensationalized this scene but the real footage seems relatively intense! The featured image is a still from “Apollo 13 in Pictures” – NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
