* The movie's opening is pretty depressing. From Richard's awkward presentation of the Nine Steps Program (and the unenthusiastic reaction he gets from his tiny audience of college students) to Uncle Frank in the hospital after trying to kill himself. Even Olive's excitement after watching the Miss America pageant comes off as sad when you know what's going to happen in the movie.

* Olive trying to hold back tears and whispering to her grandfather that she doesn't want to be a loser "because Daddy hates losers." Try to get through that scene without at least a lump in your throat, I dare you.
