On most days, we are flailing about trying to get a hold on this “being an adult” thing. And then suddenly a Disney movie is aired on TV, or you come across it on your laptop, and you decide to watch it. Uh oh. Suddenly, out of nowhere, all these emotions that you never even knew existed fill your heart and threaten to reduce you to a crying mess. Why, Disney, why?

9. Tangled : When Flynn saved Rapunzel’s life by cutting off her magical hair
Because Flynn is cocky, arrogant, self-centered and puts himself before others, the moment when he cuts off Rapunzel’s magical hair to save her from her evil mother is really special. And she is trying to heal his wound with the magic in her hair. Get me a Flynn, please.
