Tear Jerker / Jack (1996)

Go To

  • Many, but the angina attack scene is particularly heartwrenching, especially when Jack is told that he can't go back to school and he BEGS his father not to take him away from there as he finally has friends.
  • Of the Tears of Joy variant, there is the "Who I Want To Be When I Grow Up" report. God that was beautiful.
  • Jack's reaction when he first learns of the assignment and, after performing the appropriate calculations on paper, realizes what his biological age will be by the time he's technically twenty eight years of age.
    What do I want to be when I grow up? ...Alive.

How well does it match the trope?
